How To Log Into WordPress – Quick Tutorial

As a new website owner, things can sometimes get a little confusing.

If your website has been created using WordPress, then one of the first things you need to know is how to access your WordPress admin dashboard, as all of your website’s management is performed in this area.

Depending on the theme installed on your website or blog, you may be able to log in directly from your main page.

Look for a hyperlink that says “Site Admin” or “Log in”. On some websites, the log in link can be found in the Meta section of your web site’s sidebar area

Note: The WP “log in” link may not be visible in many themes. If you cannot see your WordPress login link on your site, then you will need to type your WordPress site login URL into your web browser.

The WordPress admin login URL typically will look like this:

  • https://www.yourdomain.com/wp-login.php (if WordPress is installed in the root directory of your domain)
  • https://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 by typing the following address into your web browser: https://www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin

Note: If the WordPress login section does not show when you type one of the URLs above into your browser, make sure that your WordPress installation address is correct.

If you’ve tried all of the above methods and the WordPress login section still does not display on your screen, then you may have an issue that requires technical support.
