I’m writing this blog entry remotely, so I’ll be brief. Today’s lesson is about the most important piece of WordPress documentation that doesn’t exist anywhere. I just spent 10 minutes trying to find out how to log in to my blog remotely because I deleted all of the side-bar content while working on the layout yesterday. By default, the side-bar includes the login link and when it’s gone, it’s gone.
In short, you can get to it by going to http://<Your URL with WordPress>/wp-login.php. This will take you to the login screen that gets you to the admin panel of your blog. I realize this might seem kind of obvious on a couple of levels, but I was disturbed how difficult it was to find such a simple yet crucial piece of information once you’ve removed the “Meta” widget from your sidebar.
