Hey,
I'm wanting to use the WordPress app to work on my website. Is this possible?


Word ask for email login but I've only ever had my WA site manager login to the WordPress back office we get here. So, I tried to login using my website name (as the WordPress app suggested) and I get an 403 error message.IIs that because WA have WA have a closed system so access to WordPress can only be gained via WA?


If so, what would happen if I moved hosts? (,not planning to just curious)


Thank you

as it was saidbelow, you can enter WP's URL from the browser but you need login name and the password (from WA)

Get your UN and PW from your WA Dashboard. Now go to Chrome or whatever browser, go to http://yoursite.com/wp-admin and enter your UN and PW. Easy peasy, that's it. :-)

PS Same login method regardless of host.

My pleasure! That's how I login to all my sites. I rarely go in thru the WA control.

The WordPress app asks me to login using my website and then I'd add the details you mention. The problem is when I enter my website I'm getting this error (with www. Version too)

Gotcha! First, I've never used the WP App and I don't think you'll need it. As an example, for the sandbox site I set up recently at http://surfsidesandbox.siterubix.com/ I just go to http://surfsidesandbox.siterubix.com/wp-admin and enter the UN and PW.

However, if you need to use that App on a phone or tablet for some reason, make sure you enter the HTTP or HTTPS first, that may be hanging you up. Hope this helps! :-)

Thanks mate. Appreciate it!

I build a lot of my site through my phone as lap tops and toddlers don't mix, hence wanting the app. WA isn't mobile friendly and wp isn't so great either.

I'll leave the app for now as the way you shown me works for now. Plus I'm having server malfunctions with WA at the moment.

Thanks again :)

Very cool, glad it worked! WA is correcting some server issues right now, Jaaxy has just been restored and everything should be back to normal soon. Peace my friend! :-)
