Remembering How to Get Started

By · Comments Comments Off

Many teachers are having difficulty remembering how to access their WordPress website.   The address is http://web.jc-schools.net for the main site.  Following the.net, you will add a /then your user name which is last name and first initial.  Example:  http://web.jc-schools.net/coleyj.  This will take you to your page.  Now, you need to be able to access your dashboard in order to edit content.  If you page has a META on it, you may click on “login”.  If your page does not have a META, then you may access your dashboard by adding wp-admin following another/ after your username.  Example:  http://web.jc-schools.net/coleyj/wp-admin.

Two important things to remember.

  1. There is no www in the url.
  2. You password has to be atleast 7 characters in length.
