The Administration Area is the administrative area of a WordPress website. Also called WP Admin or WP admin panel, this control panel is essential for your entire WordPress website.

In the WordPress admin area an administrator has full access to all sections. Users with other roles, such as contributor, subscriber or author, editor, have limited access to the administration area.

Each main section generally comes with a submenu where you will see more additional options. In the work area you can edit, write, and delete publications, as well as adjust the settings. The footer at the bottom contains the version of WordPress you currently have installed and links to WordPress.
