I have recently been getting problems with timeouts on my site where i need to log in to continue my session.


It brings up the WordPress login form as a pop up. But i don't know what the details are as I usually always log in through my WA account. This way suffices most of the time, but I have the WP app on my phone and i need to be able to login to my WordPress site directly.


This is also a problem when it times out because if I have to login through WA again, i end up losing my progress and sometimes end up having to rewrite entire blog posts. Nowadays, due to this, i try to save my wirk regularly in case it ti does time out.


Now, i know i can get the generated password in the login box here on WA site manager. But what email address do I use? I was originally thinking that it would be the email address i used to sign into WA. But besides tryin this andit not working, i also have multiple sites on my WA account, so that email address wouldn't do anyway as it wouldn't know which site i was trying to log into.

The WordPress app on your phone is only for websites hosted by wordpress dot com, not sites that are hosted at any other hosting provider including WA. You need to use your browser to log in without using WA Site Manager.

Oh. I see. I didnt realise that.
In fact, I only fairly recently discovered that WordPress.org existed and was different from WordPress.com which I always avouded for years.
I didnt realise the app was for the .com one.
Thanks for the enlightenment.
So, its a must that I go through WA to get onto sites i made here?

No. You just use your browser to log in. Please check the video in the link above, all will be explained. 😎

Thanks Marion. So am I right in saying that wordpress only needs the username 'Admin' to login then? You see, this was the part i was unsure about as the email address i use for WA has many websites attatched to it. But I guess WP alreadyy knows which site our trying to log into, so more jsut a case of putting in the right password?

WordPress does timeout if not active for a period. So that is probably normal.

If you are accessing directly through your admin as suggested by Trish you will need to save your password from WA websites, somewhere safe.

Hi Kevin
Sorry… I responded too quickly thinking others had asked your main question.
Is this sorted now or is there something outstanding?

I think so..
I think the word 'Admin' should suffice.
Thanks mate

Hey Kev,

Get your login details from your SiteManager, and then you can log in the easy way. This video will show you how: Hope you find this helpful.

Yea, i know how to do that an if i leave my site long enough to time out, it will bring this box up automatically. But the problem i have is what Email address i'm supposed to use.
I know the password because i can get that in myy Site manager here. But i don't know what email address or username i'm supposed to use.
Could it be my domain name?
Thanks
Kev

Sign into that site using SiteManager and from your WordPress Dashboard go to Users then you can see what email address you used.

The USERNAME to log into your WP site... that is clearly displayed from the SiteManager when you click on the DETAILS button, bottom right corner. See screen print below...

Thanks Trish

We don't use WA on a mobile phone so have no experience in this area. But the way we usually get into WA is through an email sent to us by WA as notifications on posts from others. That way we have no timeouts and getting in is quick and simple...

No, I wasnt asing how to get into WA. Im already here on WA.
I need to be able to login on my website without WA.
The phone part is irrelevant. I need to know what email address i'm supposed to use.
