    How to login as user on website

    Hello there

    I made a website for our school: www.dedialoog.be with wordpress. The theme which I based upon is Wordsmith Anvil. I adapted quite a bit to make it work as wanted.
    However, the teachers at the school want to edit the information of their classes and add pages.
    But now I don't seem to find a login button where they can edit or add pages.
    Can anybody help me how to let the teachers login so they can edit. They all have already a username and passw, just need to find where they can login. And can this be linked on the homepage?

    Thanks in advance!
    Kind regards

    You can get to it by going to .../wp-login.php in your address bar, then use the admin CP to add meta to your index page if you want to.

    Hi, there is also a plugin called sidebar-login. It gives you a nice compact login form for your sidebar that handles login and logout functionality. It's also widely localised, but I haven't figured out how to change the language yet :P

    Ok so I installed the plugin for the sidebar to login. But how do I put the login form on the homepage? It says the plugin is activated and running, but I don't see a form to fill in your login...
    So any idea how to put the loginform (plugin) onto the homepage, or even better, onto every page?

    Thanks!!

    It should now appear as a widget. On the widget page, drag it anywhere you can put a widget. If you want it somewhere else, like in your header space, I can't help you at the moment. I'm pretty new to this myself too.
