    Hi,

    Somehow i seem to have locked myself out (I am the Adminstrator).

    When I try to access wp-login, it just redirects me to the your-profile page.

    Now I cannot get access to my WordPress site.

    Please would you advise ASAP how I can get access to my own website?

    Thanks,
    Paul

    You can FTP into your server, navigate to (public_html)/wp-content/plugins/theme-my-login/ and delete the theme-my-login.php file.

    Bdw, from the options panel it seemed administrators can always access the admin area. Could you please elaborate on what you did in order to make this happen?

    Dear Swashata,
    Thank you so much for your quick response and excellent advice which has worked as you suggested. After deleting the theme-my-login.php file I am now able to enter the wp-admin area.

    The TML plugin has now automatically been deactivated, so I guess I have to delete ALL the TML folders/files and completely re-install again?

    The only changes I think I made was to click a Check Box that restrited access to wp-admin in the Themed Profiles section? But the Admin User was left unchecked and so i would not think this affected any Admin User? I guess it should be impossible to block Admin User from the admin section?

    I am most grateful for your help in unblocking the access. Thanks.
