WordPress – how do I get to the login?

If you want to edit the content on your WordPress website, you must first log in. But how was that again, how do you get to the registration mask?

If there is no login link on your WordPress website, you can use this trick: You type the word in the browser address bar directly after your URL admin a. So that’s how:


Now press Enter and you will land at the registration where you can enter your access data. If that doesn’t work, you can alternatively wp-login.php instead of admin type in

Set up a WordPress login link

If that is too cumbersome for you, you can add a login link to your navigation menu. To do this, go to Design → Menu in the dashboard. To add the login link, click on custom link. At the bottom you write “login” and at the top you give /wp-login.php a. Don’t forget the slash. If you now save the menu, a login link will appear in your navigation.

Forgot Password?

If you don’t remember your password, you can reset your password. To do this, click on the “Forgot your password” link. In the field above you can either enter your username or the email address associated with your user account.

Request a new password in 3 steps. Step 1: Click on the Forgot Password link. Step 2: Enter your username or email. Step 3: Check your email inbox.

The system will send you an email with a link to set a new password. If no email arrives, please check your spam folder. Depending on the mail server, it may take a while for the mail to arrive.


You can save passwords in the browser. Most browsers ask whether they should save login data.
Or even better: You use a password manager. Because secure passwords are long passwords and they are usually not that easy to remember. A password manager ensures that your passwords are protected from unauthorized access and that all logins always work.
