WordPress access through a direct link

  2. Type in your WordPress Username or Email Address and Password. These were set up during the installation phase. If your password is forgotten, then click on Lost your password for recovery.

Note: This direct link method works with most WordPress installations, including those through Marketplace or Simple Scripts. It will not work if the login methods have been changed from the default setup. For example, if a WordPress security plugin has customized the login URL or the wp-admin folder has been moved.
