Logging In

In order to create and edit content on a CALS WordPress website, you will need to login with your UW NetID, and have been previously added to the website with a WordPress user role using your UW NetID.

An existing site administrator has the permissions to add, edit, and remove users on their website. ↗

To login, you will need:

  • a WordPress user account on the website (approved by site owner / site administrator)
  • your UW NetID and password

1. Open a browser and go to your website.

2. Scroll to the bottom of the homepage and locate the login link.

3. Click Login. This will redirect you to the UW-Madison Login window.

UW Login Screen

5. Enter your NetID and password.

6. The WordPress Admin Dashboard for that site will appear upon successful login.

7. If you need to navigate between different sites once you are logged in, you can use the My Sites drop down menu from the top admin bar.

NOTE 1: If you have trouble logging in, or do not see any options on the vertical black Dashboard menu on the left, email CALS Web Services for support.

NOTE 2: If you have used a bookmark in the past to go to a login page, please update it and link instead to your site’s homepage.
