01 Log In

Log In To Your WordPress Dashboard

Depending upon your WordPress Theme choice and the way it has been customized, you may find a “Meta” section in one of the margins (left, right, bottom or top). Under the “Meta” header you will likely find “Log In.”

Clicking “Log In” will add “/wp-login.php” to the end of your site address, then forward you to the WordPress log in page for your site. For example, this site’s address is “http://blog4bucks.com” which becomes “http://blog4bucks.com/wp-login.php” upon clicking the “Log In” link.

If you do not find a Meta section with a Log In link on your site, no worries. Just go to the address bar and add /wp-login.php after the suffix (.com, .info, .net or whatever), then [Enter].

NOTE: Be certain that the “/” separates the two parts, and that there is only one “/”, not two “//”.

Doing so will send you to the WordPress log in page for your site, which looks like this:

If you are a Blog 4 Bucks subscriber you will have chosen and provided your own Username and Password to us as part of your setup interview. At this time, case does not matter for the Username, but does for the Password and Authorization code. That said, if you get in the habit of honoring the intended case of all Log In fields, you will save time lost by confusion at some later date.

All Blog 4 Bucks WordPress sites employ an additional level of security in the form of an Authorization code. This is a code that is common to all users of the site. It significantly compounds the difficulty of hacking into your site, effectively protecting you from even the most sophisticated hackerbots. This plugin works in conjunction with another which limits the number of log in attempts that can be made from any Internet address. Once that limit is reached, all further attempts to access the site from that address are blocked for 24 hours.

NOTE THAT THIS IMPORTANT UTILITY WILL ALSO BLOCK YOU FROM LOGGING IN TO YOUR SITE IF YOU MAKE TOO MANY INCORRECT LOG IN ATTEMPTS. Therefore, it is VERY important that you keep all three aspects of your log in information in a secure, but accessible, location.
