    The person who designed our WordPress website left and I need to make some changes. What is the first step? How do I login as admin?

    The easiest thing to do is get the login info from the previous person. If you can't do that, you'll need access to the file system or hire someone else to help you with it. Also, your web host might be able to help.

    Visit yourwebsite.com/wp-admin and the login page will show.

    mindctrl, thanks for your help. I don't see a login; I did access the page you suggest on the computer on which the site was built. When I click on account, everything is "greyed out" except for sign-up, which seems to be some sort of beta test.

    Can you direct me to the login? I can probably find the password once I hit a login page.

    What do you mean "sign-up"? You can also try yoursite.com/login.

    Can you share your website address here? That would help.

    Hey, I'm in SC too. :)

    It looks like your site has been hacked. When viewing the source code of the blank login page, it shows a hidden iframe that links to another site.

    This site scanner shows the infection.

    You need to hire someone to fix this problem. Incidentally, the Sucuri guys are good for just that thing, and their prices are great.

    Thanks mindctrl; I have a call into a web developer friend who might be able to help. That's what I get for letting the site sit so long!

    Thanks for the scan and link, and I'll keep Sucuri in mind if I don't solve it myself.
