• Hi all

    Totally new to WordPress and I’ve looked but can’t find help with this one but maybe I’m not phrasing it right.

    So I’ve got a website up and running but I want to redesign it but keep the current one running and design a new one in the background and when it’s done launch the new but delete the old? What are your thoughts and advice on how best to proceed?

    Also I’d like, if possible, to be able to build and publish the new site but not make it accessible to most visitors just specific people I give the URL to so they can look/test?

    Hope this isn’t a stupid question – I really appreciate any help.

    These are good questions.

    What are your thoughts and advice on how best to proceed?

    Create a duplicate site on you Mac or PC and make your design edits there.


    Once you’re satisfied that the results are what you are looking for then you can look to applying it to your live site. If you make a mess of your localhost copy on your Mac or PC, well there’s no harm and no foul. It’s also a great way to learn WordPress.
