[resolved] TESTING code before publishing a blog?? (6 posts)

    I'm working on a redesign of my friend's blog. She already has a WP blog. I'm wondering how I can set up a test page or test blog so that I can make changes to it - without affecting her current blog. Is there a way to do this? I'm not skilled enough to just code it and upload it... I need to see it too.

    Thanks in advance for your advice!

    WP gives you the option to preview themes before activating a theme. If you did build and upload your new theme to her site you could view it through the preview system and it wouldn't affect anything on her blog.

    Found an awesome YouTube video with step by step instruction to installing MAMP and WP. Worked great and I am now running WP locally!

    Thanks!!
