Is there a way to hide WordPress behind a web visible directory for extra security using a symlink?

Frontend, admin, or both? –  TheDeadMedic Jun 18 '11 at 17:24
    
Using symlinks? Not really. Using a custom web server configuration might work. –  Mark Snidovich Jun 18 '11 at 20:26

Symlink will not give you extra security. Since a symlink just links to the directory you want. So if you want to move wp-admin then there will not be much security there since when a users visit's wp-admin it will still load the files.
