How to Login to the WordPress Editing Area

The WordPress Dashboard is where you go to work on your site. Logging into the "back end" of your WordPress website is easy.

To be able to do anything in WordPress, you have to be able to access the “backend,” or the behind-the-scenes “dashboard.” You do this using your internet browser, which might be Edge, Chrome,Firefox, Safari, or another browser.

Logging into WordPress is easy

1. Enter the address (aka “URL”) in the address bar.

The address bar is up top, and your address will begin with “http://” followed by the name of your site, followed by “/wp-login” If your website name was www.myhorses.com, your WordPress login URL would be  http://www.myhorses.com/wp-login.php

2. Now enter your user name and password, and click the Log In button (or just hit Enter on your keyboard).

That should be it!

If you forgot your password

If you forgot your password, don’t worry. Just click the “Lost your password?” link at the bottom of the Log in box, and you’ll get instructions to get a new one.
