I am new to wordpress and have already made a lot of bad mistakes. The first of these was to accidentally publish an unfinished page, so that my entire website went live prematurely. I was advised to download a plugin by Taragana which blocked access to the site with a 'scheduled maintenance' message on screen. This did the trick.
The only problem is that I now can't access everything - the entire dashboard of the site. I've tried to log on through my 'admin' username, but the password keeps coming up as incorrect. I've tried to change the password for my blog login, in the hope that this would enable me to log on as 'admin', but with no luck.
There's probably something very basic that I need to do - I'd be grateful for any advice. I just need to access the dashboard of my site so that I can continue to work on it offline.
