There are two passwords on my Website to Login, One is on Admid, and the others Lydia19. I am confused as to what is the use of them. Do I login to the a different part of my website depending on which one I chose? Forgive my ignorance. I do encounter quite a few issues navigating through the computer. Thank you! Your help is greatly appreciate.

Either one is fine to use as you have an Admin and one with your name you cannot have the same password for both that is why the two passwords.

I have both as well but personally I use the one with my name when writing content so people can see a person's name and not just admin.

It makes it more real and accepting to have a name that readers can relate to rather than Admin

Either way, you will get to your site in the same way regardless of which you use

Also, you don't have to have the two you if you don't want as can delete the Admin but I just leave mine as is. It does no harm
having both.


Also, I might add whatever password you use Admin or the one with your name, make sure you have given both admin rights to yourself.

There as various rights one can have depending on the type of use one has access to it.

For example, if you gave me access to your website you wouldn't give me admin rights as that would give me full powers to do what I want even deleting the website.

So in the settings, if could be contributor, author (if I was writing content for you within your site and so on, that way I would only have access to those abilities on your website.

So each user on your website would have a separate password


Here is a great link from one of our much-respected and valuable member on giving access if you ever need to. Andre

Thank you Andre this is a very extensive explanation. You have made it very clear for me to understand the purpose of the two user and the pass word. I no longer will worry about using them. I am grateful for your reply.
