Seamless Login allows site owners and collaborators to securely log in to a WordPress site directly from a site’s Flywheel dashboard with one click.
Click the WP Admin or Staging WP Admin button on any page of your site’s Flywheel dashboard to automatically log in to WordPress.
When clicking the WP Admin button, Flywheel attempts to log in to WordPress using the same email you use for your Flywheel account. There are 3 possible outcomes:
Seamless Login will always be based on your Flywheel account email address. If you already have a WordPress admin account that uses a different email address, that might not be super convenient. However, you can effectively merge your current WordPress admin account with the one created by Seamless Login by following these steps:
Seamless Login is not guaranteed to work in the following situations:
There may be situations where a site’s owner may not want collaborators to have direct access to the WordPress admin area via Seamless Login, or they may already use a direct login tool like Manage WP.
In these cases, Flywheel support can disable Seamless Login by request. Just reach out to our friendly Happiness Engineers!
