    wordpress site opened with local by flywheel, but where is everything.

    Where is everything after opening the wordpress site with local by flywheel.
    it just basically says my site name, and welcome and edit or delete, then start.
    And there is a search box at the bottom.
    where are all the tools, themes, etc to create a site.

    I must be missing something here.

    If anyone can help me please

    There is also a "Admin" button on the Local app that takes you to the link that msleim mentioned.

    I use it pretty often.

    It seems like youíre trying to do all of this on your own server? Thatís tough because wp has lots of updates and you have to do EVERYTHING manually.

    Go to Wordpress online and create a free Wordpress account. Create a Wordpress site for a fake widget company just to learn how wp works and see how it all gets done. Itís free, youíll see it work, there are many tutorials.

    Youíre beating yourself up by dealing with a home server and old versions of Wordpress.

    Once you see how wp works and can play with themes and plugins, the lightbulb above your head will light up!
