Getting Started

Frontend and Backend

Your website has two distinct areas.

The frontend is what people see when they visit the site. It is open to the public.
The backend is where all the admin takes place. It is only open to Users.

In order to make any changes to your website you must therefore first login to the backend.

The Frontend is visible to any visitor

How to Login to your site's backend

There should be a Login link at the bottom of each page. Click on this link.

If the link is not there type the name of your site in the address bar with /wp-login.php at the end

Example: www.yourdomain.com/wp-login.php

You now see the Login page.

 

Enter your Username and Password and press Log in

You will have been given your Username and Password when the site was first finished.
If you do not have it contact me.

Forms
If your site has any forms for visitors to send you information, such as a Contact Form, you will see details here.

Clicking on your site's name (top left) displays the frontend.
