    WP editing.

    Hi guys, how can I make changes to a WP site if I don't have access to my WP-admin, I have my FTP info and have written to the guy that designed the site but yet to hear back from him...for example I would love to change the following content on the pages.


    http://www.londonsfinestdetailing.com/about-us

    The about us...the header of the site...take out the facebook iframe on the side....I tried to use firebug to determine which files exactly but can't find which ones.



    Thanks.

    Firebug isn't much use in situations like this, because the page as you see it in the browser is the result of various files on the server being put together before being sent to the browser.

    If the iframe is hardcoded into the templates, you could log in via FTP and modify those templates, but it's more likely that the add-on has been added via the control panel, in which case it's messier. I would definitely be wanting the log in details before touching anything like this.
