This may seem like a silly question, but for non web savvy people this can be a frustrating thing to try and work out!

The WordPress login is usually your domain name or your website name with wp-admin after it.  It needs to have the forward slash after the domain name.

See the example below.
www.yourwebsitename.com/wp-admin

wheres the wordpress login

Once you type in www.yourwebsitename.com/wp-admin this will take you to your WordPress login page.

You can then add your username and password to access your admin section of your WordPress website.

Unfortunately having your WordPress login so obvious gives hackers a better chance of trying to hack into your website.

Customise the WordPress login

Good news is you can fix this with a plugin called rename-wp-login
https://wordpress.org/plugins/rename-wp-login/

  • Go to your plugins panel inside WordPress
  • Search for rename wp-login.php
  • Install and activate the plugin
  • Go to the settings and set it up.

 

 Custom Login

There is also this cool plugin called Custom Login
https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-login/

  • Go to your plugins panel inside WordPress
  • Search for custom login
  • Install and activate the plugin
  • Go to the settings and set it up.

This will allow you to change the default WordPress login page, so you can have your own branding.
