Hm… The default template of WordPress v3.2.1 seems not very good. Actually most bloggers don’t like the super big banner at the Header that occupy most of the space at the top.

It’s time to log in the WordPress Admin Control Panel to see how the interface looks. The Admin Login Area can be accessed at:

  • http://www.YourDomain.com/wp-login.php, or
  • http://www.YourDomain.com/wp-admin/

The interface of WordPress Admin Control Panel is very clean and simple.
