It is possible to edit your website through the front end as well as the administrator area with the same login details which you will have been provided with if you had a site built by us.
How to Login to the Front End
- Click on the login link which is usually found either in the header or footer menu.
If your website does not have a login link, it is still possible to access the front end editor by pasting /index.php?option=com_users&view=login after the main URL in the address bar of the browser.
For example http://yourwebsitename.com/index.php?option=com_users&view=login
Once logged in, it is possible to navigate around the site as normal and you may have extra navigation links for administrator options.
- Navigate to the page which is to be edited.
How to Login to the Admin Area
- Usually you type /administrator the main URL in the address bar of the browser and enter your login details.
For example http://yourwebsitename.com/administrator
- Sometimes you may have extra security on your site that means you need to append a phrase to the URL.
For example http://yourwebsitename.com/administrator/?abcd
What to do if you have forgotten / lost your login details
Go to the page where you normally login and click on the forgotten details/username link or "?" icon, enter your email address and the system will email you with details.
However, this will not work if you are a super user, you'll need to get in touch with us and we can reset your password for you.
The Admin Area
Once logged in you will see the control panel that gives an overview of your website and links to perform administrative tasks.
