How to Access Your Website Login and Dashboard

Need more help? We're here for you.

To access your website dashboard, you can log in using either your username or the email address associated with your account. We will provide your website’s unique login link.

If you need to reset the password, click on the “Lost your password?” link on the login page.

Website login username and password

Once you’ve logged in, the Dashboard appears. From here, you can quickly access your site's content. 

When signed in, you will see the name of your site in the Toolbar at the very top of your Dashboard. Clicking this will allow you to go to your homepage from the dashboard and vice versa.

The Toolbar also contains quick-links to create new posts, pages, and users.

Main Navigation Menu Sidebar 

On the left side of the dashboard is the main navigation menu with the administrative functions you can perform. Hovering over major functions, such as Posts, will open a submenu with more options.

Posts

Posts are the principal element of the blog. From here, you can create and view all of your blog posts, categories, and tags.
