    Is this possible at all? I don't want people to miss it and I rather it be in both places?

    Thanks,
    Tomer

  2. Hi Tomer, is this something you'd still like to do? It looks like you've stopped using the slider, perhaps because of the earlier RTL issues? Whenever you have a chance, if you'd like to download the latest version of the theme, please let me know if those issues have been resolved, as our developer has made several RTL improvements in both the main and mini-sliders. Thanks.

    Hi Kathryn,

    Thanks for checking in on me!

    The thing is that I got some help to make a few other css changes, and when i tried to update the theme, it didn't go very well.

    I used a child theme for the changes (like you suggested in another thread), but it just got out of control.

    Is there any way we can review this together without messing up the live site (it now has real traffic)

    Hope you had a great holiday,

    Thanks,
    Tomer

  4. Hi Tomer, do you have a copy of the site running on a test server or a local server? If you don't, that's really what I'd suggest. That way, you can make your theme changes on the non-live site first, and make sure everything is working perfectly before you make the updates live.

    Just let me know if you have any questions about how to set that up.

    Thanks, could you please point me to a good resource on how-to set and manage a WP test server? I'm guessing it would be better to set it up on my hosting rather then local, as if I'll need other people to see and help, they can if it's not local...

  6. If you build sites for multiple clients, you may want to create a subdomain for each one. For example, you could have a domain like mydevsite.com and give each client a subdomain like client1.mydevsite.com.

    You'd then install WordPress on each subdomain. You may also want to password-protect those development sites so search engines don't index them and they're only visible to authorized folks.

    That said, people set up their test environments in different ways, depending on their needs.

    Here are some resources you might want to peek at - if you Google you'll find lots of others too. :-)
