I am developing a new website using wordpress for a client who already has a live website, and want to keep the same URL. My plan was to use a subdomain to develop the website, then transfer it to the old address once it was completed. However the premium theme he is using is one use only, and I wasn't sure that were I to activate it in the separate wp installation on the subdomain, that I would be able to transfer it to the new URL.
is it the case that:
1) if I keep the same wp installation (i.e. transfer the whole site database and URLs) the theme will be transferred successfully
2) If I just transferred content via the import/export function then the theme would not be transferable/transferred.
Many thanks in advance!
