How To Login Into Your WordPress Website

Have you forgotten the login url to your WordPress website?

Someone who is new to WordPress can face difficulty in finding the login url to their WordPress website. It is in fact quite common for people to forget how to get back into their website.

Without being able to log into your website you won’t be able to access it. You will be restricted to the public facing part of your website. You won’t be able to create posts, manage your website settings nor install any plugins or themes.

Logging in to your WordPress website

The best way to log into your WordPress website is to add /login or /admin at the end of your domain. This is for those who have installed WordPress in their root directory.

www.website.com/login

www.website.com/admin

You will be redirected to the login page of your WordPress website if you visit from any of the above urls. If you end up facing some issues with the above urls then you can directly visit the login url by adding /wp-login.php at the end of your domain. The url becomes

www.website.com/wp-login.php

If you have installed WordPress in a subdirectory then you will have to add the directory name too.

For example,

www.website.com/login becomes www.website.com/directory/login

www.websit.com/admin becomes www.websit.com/directory/admin

www.website.com/wp-login.php becomes www.website.com/directory/wp-login.php

 

Similarly if you have installed WordPress on a subdomain then

www.website.com/login becomes subdomain.website.com/login

www.websit.com/admin becomes subdomain.websit.com/admin

www.website.com/wp-login.php becomes subdomain.website.com/wp-login.php

After you enter the correct credentials you will be redirected to the admin dashboard from the login page.

Adding the login url to your menus

If you are still having difficulty in remembering the login urls then you can also add the login url to your public website in the menu section. It will make it easy for you to login by just clicking a button from the menu section of your public website.

Steps to add login url to the menu
  1. Visit Appearance -> Menus from your admin dashboard.
  2. Under the Add menu items section, expand the Custom Links option.
  3. In the URL text field enter the login url to your website and in the Link Text you can enter Login.
  4. Click on the Add to Menu button.

Now a login url will be added to the menu section of your website. You can click on it to be directed to the login page of your WordPress website.

Final Thoughts
