Logging into WordPress

1. In your favourite browser, go to:
www.yourwebsiteaddress.co.uk/wp-admin

It’s important to use a high quality browser such as Firefox or Chrome. Issues are known to arise with other browsers.

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

The WordPress Log in box

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.

On the next page, enter your username or email address and click ‘Get New Password’. You should receive a link to create a new password via email.

If all else fails, contact your web designer who will be able to reset your password for you.

Using the Admin bar

If you can see the Admin bar (as 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.
