Having used WordPress for many years, I just recently published a new blog. On my original blog, I was able to stick a ‘Meta’ widget on the bottom menu so I could easily log-in without having to go to wordpress.com’s main page. When I tried to do that with my new blog, however, I didn’t see ‘Meta’ as a widget option. Can I still do that? If so, how?
The blog I need help with is markbhorner.wordpress.com.
*Actually, the blog I need help with is annalisthistory.wordpress.com/ Markbhorner.wordpress.com is my first blog, which has the Meta link.
My problem is same as that of markbhorner I didn’t see ‘Meta’ as a widget option. Can I still do that? If so, how?
The blog I need help with is nehruplanetarium.wordpress.com
The WordPress.COM meta widget was removed months ago.
Every WordPress.COM blog has a sole owner. It is the person with the WordPress.COM username account who registered the blog under that username account and a single associated email address here https://wordpress.com/me/account, and who is the original Admin of the blogs registered under that username account.
What I post below applies only to sites hosted by wordpress.COM. It does not apply to wordpress.ORG software installs.
You must be logged in under the exact same username that registered the site to be able to access the site. The Admin login link to the dashboard for every blog hosted by wordpress.COM is:
*Replace NAME_OF_BLOG in that URL with the actual name of your blog.
I recommend bookmarking that link or memorizing it.
Also note that if you wish you can create your own login in a text widget. See here thread/post here https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/meta-widget-5?replies=8
