I have built websites before using editors that are installed onto a computer and then the site is uploaded via FTP.
I cannot quite work out, though, whether WordPress is installed onto a computer in the same way and then the files uploaded or, as I think is the case, you are working live on-line the whole time.
Could anyone please clarify this for me?
If I am correct and it is on-line, live, is there a way to work off-line and simply publish the results?
Finally, can a WordPress site be edited with a different web application at all?
