    Hi, thanks in advance for the help :-) I started building a WordPress website which has not gone live yet. I wanted to change the domain name, so went to settings and general, and changed it in the fields there. Now I’m unable to access the dashboard as the link as sent to me in the original email doesn’t work, and using wp-admin for the old or new address doesn’t work. Any help would be much appreciated.

      You will need to connect to your website using an FTP client. If you remember which theme you were using, then go to /wp-content/themes/your-theme-directory/ and locate the functions.php file. Download or Edit it and add this code at the bottom of functions file:

      update_option( ‘siteurl’, ‘http://example.com’ );
      update_option( ‘home’, ‘http://example.com’ );

      Replace example.com with your site’s last working domain name.

      You will now be able to access your WordPress site’s admin area. Once you are in go to Settings->General page and update site URL there. Once you have updated site URL in settings then remove the code you added from functions.php file.

      Hope this helps.

    I have used bluehost to download wordpress.org and everything was working perfectly until the admin URL does not work, it never did.
    I currenly have my domain in use with Weebly, may this be reason that its not working on wordpress.org? How do I fix it?

    Help!!!

    • WPBeginner Support says:

      If you installed WordPress on the same domain that you used on Weebly, then you will need to point that domain to BlueHost now.

        Yes, I did that and was still having trouble… then i switched computers, and strangely, it worked, and now it’s working on the original computer as well… what a pain, I wish I would have been better informed about which app to use to begin with, and that I hadnt chosen weebly! worst choice ever. Thanks by the way for all these really good tutorials. You are a life saver.

    Hello, I have produced a free WordPress.com page and I am very happy with it.
    Somehow, anyone looking at my blogs, and wanting to use the ‘like’ tab is being asked to log in to WordPress. Is this normal?
    Thanks.

    I have forgotten my password, or perhaps wordpress has forgotten it.
    Yes, it is bookmarked, but I tried to get in via Google at the general WordPress site, and went to log in with a] username b] email address c] wordpress.com blog address and was told that no such persons existed nor had they accounts.
    How do I solve this? How can I recover/change my password?

    Oh thank God. I finally understand what’s Meta for. Can you teach us how to turn back META tags on WordPress? Thanks.

    I have installed word press and am very pleased with it.
    However, yesterday something happened so that the word “rediger” (edit) no longer shows on my page.
    At the same time I discovered that I am unable to remember my “adgangsord” (Access code) …
    What can I do or what can you do to help me?

    add_filter( 'wp_nav_menu_items', 'add_loginout_link', 10, 2 );
    function add_loginout_link( $items, $args ) {

    if (!is_user_logged_in() && $args->theme_location == 'shop') {
    $items .= '<li><a class="icon-log" title="Zaloguj | Zarejestruj"
    href="'. wp_login_url( get_permalink() ) .'"></a></li>';
