You reach your WordPress Dashboard by adding the /wp-admin at the end of your site URL (https://yoursitename.com/wp-admin).

When you’re working from your site’s dashboard, it is referred to as working in the “back-end” of your site.

There are two parts to WordPress: Public (also known as front-end) and Private (also known as back-end).

The front end of the site is what the site visitor sees in their browser, while the back-end is where you manage content.


The theme you choose determines the look of your site.

The theme consists of PHP files with HTML, CSS, and Javascript all working together to display your site in a unique way.

Don’t worry about messing up your content when updating your site. You can change your theme without affecting the content.
