Manage website – open user interface, with WordPress, Joomla, TYPO3 and co.
This is how you reach the backend/dashboard of your content management system
Today’s modern websites are often based on a so-called “content management system” in which it is made very easy for the user to create, manage, change or delete their content, such as articles, pages and their directories. If you haven’t made any changes to your website for a long time, or if your website was created by an advertising agency, such as our advertising agency in Limburg, and you would like to access the administration area / backend of your website, this often arises the question of how to get there. Below, we have created a condensed guide for you on the most commonly used content management systems, which explains how to use the Login to the administration area / the backend of your CMS, such as WordPress, Joomla!, Typo3, Shopware or Contao call and log in there.
WordPress Dashboard: Register / Login to WordPress
WordPress is a CMS for creating a blog, website or small web shop. The user interface of by far the most popular CMS WordPress can be reached with two functions. For one, you can Dashboard by entering the path * after your URLlogin.php* append. The whole thing then looks like this, for example:
Another way to log in to your WordPress website as an administrator is the path *wp-admin*. Add this to your URL as well. It should then look like this:
A window will then open in which you can log in with your access data. Once you have entered your correct user data, the dashboard of your WordPress site will open. Here you now have the possibility to create and manage posts, pages and some other things.
Shopware: Open the backend and log in
Shopware is a popular shop system for small to large companies. With this system, your own online shop can be created in a short time and shopping worlds can be created quickly and easily. However, if you now have to make changes to your Shopware online shop, you must first log into the so-called “backend”. You can achieve this by appending the following abbreviation to your website URL: *baking*.
Here again an example:
Here, too, you will first see a login screen and can then log in with your access data. You either created the access data yourself in advance or you can ask your advertising agency for this. After successfully logging in, you land on the backend of your online shop, where you can manage pages, create products or change prices.
Joomla!: Login to the administrator area (backend)
Logging into Joomla! Doesn’t differ much from the other content management systems. Again, you need to append an abbreviation to the URL of your website. This abbreviation is: *Administrator*.
An example for Joomla!:
The login screen for logging into the administration backend then opens. After successfully logging in, you get to the control center where you can change or manage posts, pages or users again.
Log in to Drupal as an administrator
Drupal is intended as an exchange platform for information and is currently developing into one of the largest editorial systems. But this system is more for experienced web developers. If you still want to log into your Drupal environment, you can do this as follows: enter the following path after your domain URL *user/login*.
This could then look like this:
Reaching the TYPO3 backend, that’s how it works!
TYPO3 is still one of the largest CMS. To reach the backend of your TYPO3-based website and make settings and changes to your website, add * to your URLtype3* at.
An example of this:
You will then reach your Typo3 backend after the login area.
Contao: Login backend – administrator area
Contao is also a frequently used content management system. It is primarily suitable for building websites and, like all CMS, offers an administrator area to manage the website. You can access this by typing *contao* Append to your website URL.
You can see how that should look like here:
Now you have the opportunity to adapt your website and make changes here again after you have successfully logged in with your login data.
