Having difficulties working out how to log into your WordPress admin area? This basic tutorial for WP newbies shows you how to log into your WordPress site.

How Do I Log Into WordPress? – Quick Tutorial

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

If your website has been built using WordPress, then one of the first things you need to know is how to access your WordPress admin section, as all of your website’s 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 theme your web site uses, you may be able to log in directly from your front page.

Look for a hyperlink that says “WP-Dashboard” or “Log in”. On some sites, the link can be found in the Meta section of your web site’s sidebar menu

If the link is visible on your theme, just click on it …

You will be taken to the WordPress login page. Enter your username and password, and click on the Log In button to access your WordPress Administration section …

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

By default, the WordPress admin login URL normally will look like this (replace ‘yourdomain’ with your actual domain):

Note: If you cannot see the login box when you type in 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 Cannot Log Into WordPress …

If you’ve tried all of the above methods and you still can’t access the WordPress login section, then you may have an issue that requires troubleshooting.

If you think that the issue has to do with entering an incorrect password, then see the tutorial below:

If you suspect that the reason why you cannot log into your site has to do with a technical issue, then see the troubleshooting tutorials here:
