  • Hi,

    I want to change my theme but before that i will make some changes in the new one. Besides that i do not want to change my recent theme, i just want my blog keep going with the recent URL until i am done with the new theme.

    so i want to create a new URL so only i can access to the new version of my blog so i can see the updates which i did.

    how is this possible…please clear explanations than you

  • I have a second wordpress install to accomplish this

    If you own your own domain and have a web hosting account, you should be able to set up a subdomain. It’s treated for all practical purposes like a domain so you can install WordPress (or anything else) on it, or any other subdomains you choose to set up.. That’s my best advice. Then you can keep that subdomain around as a testbed or sandbox or playpen to try out new things without blowing up your live site.

    Possibly simplest option would be to use a plugin like:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/theme-switcher/

    On your current blog. Don’t have to add the stuff from it in your sidebar (or wherever) as you can access your site with this query suffixed to the url:

    ?wptheme=Name of Theme

    That theme will be set as the one you see in your browser, without affecting the active theme set under Presentation.
