The login info for a WP practice site, doesn't seem to be working. I copied and pasted the info from the teacher's notes

Is there new information for logging into a WordPress practice site? I copied and pasted the information from the teachers notes.

I just tried it, and it worked for me. Make sure you're not coping any extra white space in your selection.

Thanks for the response Kevin. What happened was Workspaces was taking a while to load. It has loaded and doesn't seem to require any login information. I was trying to log into the Wordpress.com site with the login information. I was confused. But I've started a free blog on Wordpress so I can follow along with the videos. Thanks for your help!

On workspaces, if you append to whatever the random URL workspaces gives you a /wp-admin and press enter it'll take you to the admin log in page, where you can log in with that information.

But sounds like you got it sorted. Happy coding and cheers!

Kevin, I have the same issue as Jake and followed your suggestion to add /wp-admin to the URL. Unfortunately, it took me to a page with the following error message "Bummer. It appears the page you're looking for doesn't exist."

Any ideas of what to try next?

Thanks!

I'm having the same problem :( I might try Jake's method.

Sorry, I no longer have a good solution :\

I am getting the same results as you, it takes me to a "page doesn't exists error". My recommendation would be to set up a local copy set up, or a free wordpress site so you can use the admin backend.
