before I launch while I'm modifying the theme?
This is my first WordPress installation. Great so far -- except -- I need to customize the images, colors, and so on and I want to redirect the public to another domain before until I can finish building and clean up the contruction debris.
I don't want to be troubleshooting CSS while the site is live.
I installed WordPREss to root, uploaded an HTML redirect called index.htm, and made that doc the default doc. That allows me to write posts and do a few other things while redirecting the public away. But I can only view the home page of the WordPRess blog, and I can't even upload images.
I need to make major changes to the graphic and css aspects of the theme (I know CSS and HTML, so I can do this), but I need a way to work in peace out of the public eye and test methododically as I go.
Also, it's not fair to my client to have a half-finished "under construction" site plainly in view.
Do I need to uninstall and reinstall to a subdirectory, such as /blog?
