John Turner founder of SeedProd Posted by John Turner on November 1, 2017

Most newcomers to WordPress have a simple question. “How do I login into WordPress?” or better yet, “What’s the easiest way to access the WordPress Login Page.

WordPress Login Shortcut Creator

In the examples below we use our domain if you want to test.
Enter your domain in the textbox to customize the examples Make sure to include http or https in your domain like: https://mydomain.com

The Default WordPress Login URL

The main way to access WordPress Login page is to go straight to the login page url. Which would be:

Basically if you just add wp-login.php to the end of your domain you can then access the Default WordPress Login Page.

WordPress also redirects any request to the wp-admin area to the default WordPress login page. So if enter this into your browser you will be redirected to the default login page.

WordPress Login Shortcuts

The core developers working on WordPress realized that these were not that intuitive so they added shortcut urls in later versions of WordPress which made it much easier to remember and user friendly. So in addition to the access urls mentioned above you can also access your login page with these shorter and easy to remember urls.

Note: If you are using a WordPress security plugin that hides your WordPress Login url then these urls above may not apply.

WordPress Multisite Login URL

If you are using WordPress multisite then the url able will take you to the main site login page. To access subsite login pages see the example below.

WordPress Multisite Subdirectory Login URLs

https://example.com/subdirectly/wp-login.php
https://example.com/subdirectly/login
https://example.com/subdirectly/admin
https://example.com/subdirectly/dashboard
https://example.com/subdirectly/wp-admin

WordPress Multisite Subdomain Login URLs

https://subdomain.example.com/wp-login.php
https://subdomain.example.com/login
https://subdomain.example.com/admin
https://subdomain.example.com/dashboard
https://subdomain.example.com/wp-admin
