Happy New Year!

Thanks for a great year…
  
We are starting off the new year with the first in a series of helpful tips and hints for our valued WordPress users.
Some of these items you will already know but for those of you who are new users, you may not.
image-11Logging in to your site sounds simple enough and really it is, but there are no visual indicators on a WordPress site to help you find the needed login screen.

 
This is done on purpose so visitors to your site have a more pleasant browsing experience and your site looks more professional.
Besides, isn’t it frustrating to see a login area that is not meant for you, even if you understand the reasoning behind it, it’s still annoying to be locked out of anything.
Here are the steps to finding your login screen.
1) Load your site in your favourite browser.
type your domain in the address bar of your browser or click on bookmarked link.
2) Type “/wp_admin” following your domain name and press ‘return’.
Note: You have to be on the base address of your site for this to work!
You should now be redirected to the login page for your site, which is where you want to be.  The only other thing to do is to enter your login credentials [aka your user name and password] to gain access to the administrative area of your site. 
And it’s just that easy. 

We recommend adding the login page link to your bookmarks or favourites so you can skip this tedious step in the future making life much more enjoyable.
 
More Wordpress tips and hints to come soon.
 
Thanks for your support!
