Welcome to the wonderful world of WordPress! 

Your developer would have given you a login page for your WordPress site, for example https://yourwebsite.com/wp-admin. This can be customised, so it’s possible that you’ll have a different login page address for example https://yourwebsite.com/admin. 

When you reach the login page it has an input box for your username/email and password. These should have been provided to you, in which case pop in your details and login.

Can’t find your username or password?

Your developer should have set you up a user and registered it to your email address, have a quick check of your inbox and spam to make sure before contacting them.

If you know your username or email but have just forgotten your password, you can go to the login page and click ‘Lost your password?‘ to reset it. You’ll then receive an email with a password reset link, follow it and you’ll be able to assign a new password and login.

Good to know:

When you’re logged into your website and you view your homepage, you might notice you have a little black bar along the top of the site – don’t worry that’s to show you’re logged in and the customer can’t see it. There are helpful quick links on there too such as ‘Edit Page’ and  ‘New Post‘.
