Are you finding it difficult to log into your WordPress blog dashboard? This basic tutorial shows you how to access your WordPress blog’s login page.

How Do I Log Into WordPress? – Quick Tutorial

As a new website administrator, learning your way around your site can sometimes be a little confusing.

If your website is built using the WordPress CMS platform, then one of the first things you need to know is how to access your WordPress administration section, as all of your website’s management and administration is performed in this area.

The first step is to locate your login username and password. You should have received your login details during the WordPress installation process or from your site administrator or website developer.

Depending on the WordPress theme your site uses, you may be able to log in directly from your front page.

Look for a hyperlink that says “WP-Dashboard” or “Login”. On some websites, the log in link can be found in the Meta section of the website’s sidebar menu

If the link is visible on the home page, simply click on it …

This brings up the WordPress login page. Enter your username and password, and click on the Log In button to access your WP Dashboard …

Note: The “login” link can be hidden in many themes. If you cannot find your WordPress login link on your site, then you will need to type your WordPress site login URL into your web browser.

Your WordPress admin login URL typically will look like this (replace ‘yourdomain’ with your actual domain):

Note: If the WordPress login page does not show when you type one of the URLs above into your browser:

If you can access the WordPress login section but it’s not letting you log in, then:

Also, keep in mind that sometimes while working on your site you will notice that if you leave your browser window open for a long period of time, your WordPress session will expire and you will be asked to login again …

(Expired WordPress sessions require logging in again!)

Thanks to built-in WordPress features like autosave, you can just log in again and pick up from where you left off.

If You Can’t Log Into Your Site …

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

If you suspect that the issue has to do with the password being incorrect, then see the tutorial below:
