I’ve been asked this question a few times recently, as WordPress has sought to make it easier for users to post a quick blog post or create a page. People who are familiar with the old, more detailed dashboard want to find it again. So here’s how.

When you log on to WordPress, you will find a button marked My Sites. Click on that and you’ll get the new, simplified dashboard:
Now click on WP Admin, circled on the above image.
This will take you to the old familiar interface:
If this doesn’t work there is another tip, which is to add /wp-admin to the end of your page’s URL.
Note: this works for WordPress.com, the free version – self-hosted WordPress.org is a little different. If you’ve found this post useful, please do share it using the sharing buttons below.
