I've got WordPress installed locally, running on wamp, so that I can design the theme in full before going live.
At the moment, I have the index.php and style.css sheet complete (basically the css/html markups with no active links), and I've successfully loaded it as the site's Theme using the dashboard 'new theme' utility, so that when I go to http://localhost/wordpress it displays the site's home page. At some point I closed my browser tab that displayed the dashboard.
I'm now about to begin integrating the theme with the php code, and then I finally found a new widget that I've been wanting to install locally.
I can't get into my Dashboard, since my log in link is not an actual link. When I go to http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin I just get redirected back to the home page (the css html design markup).
I guess I could just go into the files and integrate the log in php code into my index.php first to see if I can allow myself to log in, but is there any other quick way for me to get into the dashboard? Like a direct link that won't redirect me to the home page?
Thanks in advance for your help.
