Is my site WordPress?
Yes, your Digital Horse Marketing website is built in WordPress, the most popular software for building websites in the world. There are a lot of reasons we use WordPress and maybe someday we’ll write about some of them. But for today, we just want a quick tutorial on how to login to your site. After all, if you draw a blank on this step, it’s hard to get anything done! And that happens to everyone at some point.
Bookmark your admin dashboard
Remember bookmarks? All the different browsers have different ways of bookmarking a site. Whatever your favorite browser, just make a bookmark or a favorite for this address:
If you aren’t logged in when you go to that address, you will be sent to the login page. If you are logged in, you will go straight to the admin dashboard. Slick, huh?
Type in your login credentials
You can use either your username or your email address which is great since it’s harder to forget your email address. Then, type in your password.
If you are working on your own computer, do yourself a big favor and check the remember me box. It will keep you logged in for up to two weeks. Saves clicks!
Notice that the login page will also let you reset your password if you forget it. Just be sure to make your WordPress passwords very strong – that’s important to keep your site secure!
Here’s a quick video of me logging into my site. You’ll see I have my site bookmarked in my bookmarks toolbar. You may also notice I use the Bitwarden password manager which beats the heck out of keeping them on sticky notes.
