After you successfully setup your WordPress site, what’s next?

Obviously, you want to manage your website and put contents to it. But how can you do that? WordPress has what we call a Dashboard where you can manage your entire website.

What is a WordPress Dashboard?

WordPress Dashboard is a place where you can access and manage your entire website’s system. This includes but not limited to functionalities, appearance, comments, users, and contents like media, posts, pages, and forms.

How to access the WordPress Dashboard?

To access the WordPress dashboard you simply need to add /wp-admin to the end of the URL where you installed WordPress like the below example:
example.com/wp-admin

Note! If you installed WordPress to the document root of the url it would be example.com/wp-admin. If you installed WordPress on a folder called “blog” on your domain you would go to example.com/blog/wp-admin

Type the username and password you used when you installed WordPress.
