How to log in to UOBlogs/WordPress sites

A recent update to WordPress may have disabled a link that allows UO Blogs user to log in by clicking on a Log In button on the upper-left of certain sites. While the link could be fixed in the coming days or weeks, we wanted to ensure that you can gain access to your site(s) with little inconvenience in the meantime. Due to a recent spate of calls, we have issued this post on how to utilizes both that method and another workaround so that you can access your sites.


There are two primary methods for logging on to your site:

Method One

Click the Log In link on the upper-left of the browser window

Sign in using your Duck ID and password by clicking on the Use My Duck ID button

Then, you will arrive at the Dashboard for your site(s)

Note: You may have to click on View My Sites if you have access to multiple sites (as seen below)

Method Two

Similar to Method one above, this will give you access to your site but through the UO Blogs main website. Go to then click on the Login tab:

Then continue to proceed through the steps of Method One as described above.


Once logged in, you’ll see the administrative toolbar above the site header which will allow you to add more content or return to the site dashboard (as in the image below for CASIT Blog administrators).
