I am fairly new to how WP works, but I have created a few themes in WP so I am not completely new, but quite limited in other parts. I am working on a redesign for http://www.tracyaviary.org. They gave me a copy of the site which I have installed on my own webstie: http://tracy.billynair.com/
The major problem is that all the links are sent back to http://www.tracyaviary.org, this includes the wp-login.php. I got a copy of their database set up on my server and have access to that, which from what I read you need to make things work.
In the other posts I have read with my issue the users have access to both the old and new sites. I am guessing I do not need access to their site for mine to work, but I can not find an example of my situation. If you go here:
and scroll down about 2/3rds the page to
If You Want Your Old Site To Still Work
3. Go back to your OLD site and go to options and change the url (both of them) to that of your new site.
I run into the problem that I don’t have access to the old site, and, I am not going to be running the site from my personal website, I am only developing a new theme and adding a few features like social feeds etc.
I need to log into the site that is on my website and have the links all point to the files on my site, not the original site. Thank you for any help you can provide.
