Logging into WordPress

by JackieR | Hot and Mobile

1. In your favourite browser, go to:
www.yourwebsiteaddress.com/wp-admin
*Replace yourwebsiteaddress.com with your own website address

This should be entered into the address bar of your browser, not a search box (the log-in page is not indexed by search engines and therefore, won’t be found).

2. At the log in screen, enter your username (or the email address connected to your WordPress account), your password and click ‘Log In’.

WordPress Log in page

Forgotten your username?

If you have forgotten your username (or the email address for your WordPress account), you will probably need to contact your web designer for a reminder.

Forgotten your password?

If you have forgotten your password, click the ‘Lost your password?’ text link (displayed on the log-in page).

On the next page, enter your username (or the email address connected to your user account) and click ‘Get New Password’. As advised, you will receive a link to create a new password via email.

If all else fails, contact your web designer who can reset your password for you.

The WordPress Admin bar

If you can see the Admin bar (the black bar shown below) you are already logged into WordPress and can click on your website name (in the Admin bar) to go to your Admin Panel.
