[resolved] Switching from Joomla to WordPress - Can I build WP site in the background? (3 posts)

    My website is currently Joomla based and I want to switchover to WordPress because it seems a lot more customizable and easier to work with than Joomla.

    I don't remember what version of WordPress I installed, but it is the most current version.

    Is there any way I can build my wordpress site in the background while I continue to update the Joomla version of my website until I'm ready to switch everything over? I know you are able to do this with Joomla, but I don't want to start working on switching stuff and realize I can't do that.

    I would appreciate anyone's input!
    Thank you in advance.

    Yes you can, install in a sub-directory then "move" WP when things are ready to go "moving" is simple, copy an edited file to the root and a change in the Dashboard. I did that on my main site, worked great.
