WordPress Administration Panel
Managing site settings, adding, deleting, editing posts and pages, registering and defining user rights, changing the appearance of the site - all this is done from the WordPress admin panel. In order to open the administrative panel, in the address window of your browser, you need to type the line:
yourdomain / wp-admin / or
yourdomain / folder name / wp-admin / if Wordpress is installed in the folder. As a result, the authorization form will open (see the screenshot below). Log in, using the username and password you received, when installing WordPress.

The page of the administrative panel can be conditionally divided into 4 sections (see the screenshot below):
The contents of the Toolbar and Menu sections determine the navigation of the site administration. And the Work Area section is the area where the administration pages are displayed in accordance with the selected Menu or Toolbar navigation buttons.
