Q. How can I access my site's WordPress Admin Panel?


All WordPress sites, including any that you make or participate in on the Commons, can be managed in the admin area of WordPress, known as the WordPress Admin Panel or WP-Admin. This is where content on a site is created and maintained; it’s where you write what everyone else sees. You can only access this admin area if you have an administrative or other managerial or contributing role on the site. If you created a site you are automatically an administrator of it.

You can access the Admin Panel via its URL, which is simply your site’s URL followed by “/wp-admin.” So, if you need to edit the site at “https://help.mla.hcommons.org,” you would point your browser to “https://help.mla.hcommons.org/wp-admin.”

You can also access it by going to My Sites in the admin toolbar that runs across the top of your screen, hovering over the name of your site and clicking on “dashboard.” This will take you to your WordPress dashboard, which is the landing page for the Admin Panel.
