Accessing Your WordPress Site Site Admin – Quick Tutorial
As a new website owner, things can sometimes be a little confusing.
If your website is developed using WordPress, then one of the main things you need to know is how to log into your WordPress administration section, as all of your website’s management and admin is performed in this section.
Depending on the WordPress theme used on your website or blog, you may be able to log in directly from your home page.
Look for a hyperlink that says “Site Admin” or “Login”. On some websites, the login link can be found in the Meta section of the site’s sidebar menu …
If the link displays on the home page, all you have to do is click on it …
And you will be taken to your WordPress login page. Enter your username and password, and click on the Log In button to access your WP Dashboard …
Note: The WP “log in” link may not be visible in some themes. If you cannot see the WordPress login link on your site, then you will need to type your WordPress admin login URL into your web browser.
By default, your WordPress admin login URL normally looks like this:
- http://yourdomain.com/wp-login.php (if WordPress is installed in your root directory)
- http://yourdomain.com/subfolder/wp-login.php (if WordPress is installed in a subfolder of your domain, e.g. “blog”)
- You can access the login section using this address: http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin
Note: If you can’t see the login box when you type in one of the above URLs into your browser, make sure that the location of your WordPress installation is correct.
If you’ve tried all of the above methods and the login area still does not come up on your web browser, then you may have an issue that needs to be looked further into.
