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.
