Can’t Login to WordPress but sure your details are correct?

If you can’t login to WordPress and you know your details are correct here is a very common cause with a simple solution:


Check for a string similar to this in your URL



It’s a common fault in WordPress.


The solution is to remove all of the excess code so you end up with just:


Refresh the page, ensuring that the excess code is now gone and try and log in again. If you still can’t login then you are looking at a more in depth issue, try resetting your password in the first instance. If that won’t work then you can still move forward so long as you have FTP or Hosting/Cpanel/Backend access by resetting your password manually (this would take a more in depth post).
