LEARNING TO USE WORDPRESS

 

I appreciate WordPress as being pretty easy to use overall .. with a very low ‘learing curve’ to get started.

Hence it is highly recommended.

However  I am still a VERY inexperienced user of it and welcome any tips.    You can either leave here or else email me a john.mail AT ozemail.com.au

What I mainly know very little about is how to best organise one’s material within WordPress.

My first actual major GLITCH to occur with WordPress, which thankfully proved to be only short-lived, is something that I’m sure must have happened to many.

If you’re new to WordPress and you’ve logged out of your own site you may soon enough end up with no idea how to log back in again, and this can be a very frustrating experience.

Initially I had seemed to be getting some sort of prompt .. or maybe was just “remembering” (I now forget if I was remembering or what!).

In any case by 2015 if I had been ‘remembering’ it had come to pass  that I had now forgotten whatever I’d just been remembering (such remembering can be almost automatic – like somehow being always able to punch in your right handibank or gate entry access codes without even having to think about it).

But by 2015 I was stumped on how to get back into adding content at WordPress and could see NO indication whatsoever from either my main “Interesting Sites” page or any sub-pages.

Apparently many themes USED to have a link for logging in displayed at the home page but it is said to be RARE to find anything that does that nowadays at WordPress.

Yes the answer,  once known, is very simple to try and remember (or write down) again.

Most people when accessing their site will want to go directly to the “admin area” or what WordPress calls “dashboard”.

A very simple way of doing this is to add /admin (or /wp-admin also works) to the end of your site’s URL.

When not already logged in, WordPress then automatically prompts you to log in by displaying the login box.

[ ….. apparently adding /wp-login, /wp-login.php or /login to the end of the site URL also works but I settle for just using /admin.]

It is beyond my actual desire for the moment but it’s also advised that if wanting to “personalise” your login page, that too can be done and see:  How to Create a Stunning Custom WordPress Login Page   ( The basic advice herein comes  from http://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/how-to-find-your-wordpress-login-url ).
