How to test new theme before going live (5 posts)

    I have downloaded the theme that is currently being used, modified the graphics and style sheets, renamed and uploaded it.

    Is there a way to test it before going live on the website?

    thanks!

    Have you considered running WordPress locally for theme development?

    yes, can install wordpress locally. I need to trouble shoot the website - it has a lot of pages and content already. Will running wordpress locally allow me to see how the new theme integrates on the existing site?

    It would if you replicated the remote site on your local server. See Moving_WordPress for details of how you could do this.
