Want to redesign blog but not destroy old (3 posts)

    I think I know how to do this but I want to make sure.

    I want to redesign my blog but not do it live. Can I do this by mirroring the site and it's contents at http://www.blog.com/redesign then when I am done just move the directories to the updated site at http://www.blog.com for example.

    I want to make everything look the way I want before I make it live.

    Biggest reason for the redesign is to incorporate widgets better in sidebar by the way. I use code now and the two don't seem to play well together.

    This is what themes and templates are for.
    You can create your new theme in wp-content/themes/ then when you've checked it all, enable it in the admin page.

    It might be worth taking a look at this Codex documentation:
