Q: How do I login to my WordPress website?

A: In order to change text, add photos, etc… you need to login to the admin area of your website.  Logging in is easy, the first step is to get to the login screen and to do that, simply type in [yoururl]/wp-admin in your browser’s URL bar – you’ll want to replace the [yoururl] part with your actual website URL.

For example, if your website is jimmysbbq.com, you would type in jimmysbbq.com/wp-admin.

Once there you will see a login screen, enter in the username and password we sent you.  If you have trouble logging in please copy and paste the user and password (as opposed to trying to manually retype it).  If you are still having problems click on the link that says Lost your password? and enter your email address (you’ll receive an email with a link to reset your password).  If you are still having problems send us an email and we’ll look into it for you.
