Accessing the protected wp-admin

Overview

As a positive side-effect to the static site approach that SpudPress provides, your “dynamic” WordPress site is not immediately publicly accessible.

This is more or less transparent for you, when editing the site. Just make sure to use the “WordPress Admin” button from your site dashboard.

Give access to others

It is still possible to give other people access to edit content via WordPress without giving them access to the SpudPress dashboard, there’s just one extra step to keep in mind.

For extra security, we require you to log in via HTTP Basic Authentication to access the dynamic WordPress sites. So when sharing the wp-admin login, make sure to copy the entire URL including the auto-generated username and password.

The easiest way to do this is just right click on the “WordPress Admin” button from dashboard, and click copy URL.
