New to WordPress? This basic tutorial shows you how to access your WordPress site’s login page.

Accessing Your WordPress Login Page – Quick Tutorial

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

If your website has been built using WordPress, then one of the main things you need to learn is how to log into your WordPress admin area, as all of your website’s management tasks are run from this section.

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 used on your website, you may be able to log in directly from your main page.

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

If this link is visible on your theme, 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 Admin area …

Note: The “login” link may be hidden in some themes. If you cannot see your WordPress login link on your website, then you will need to type your WordPress admin login URL into your browser.

The default WordPress admin login URL typically should look like this (replace ‘yourdomain’ with your actual domain):

Note: If the login area does not show when you type in one of the above URLs into your web 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 WordPress Site …

If you’ve tried all of the above methods and the login form still doesn’t display on your web browser, then you may have an issue that needs to be looked into further.

If you think that the reason you cannot log into your WordPress site has to do with entering an incorrect password, then refer to the tutorial below:

If you think that the issue has to do with a technical issue, then refer to the troubleshooting tutorials here:
