I have a project coming up, where I need to develop a wordpress theme, test, populate pages and posts etc, and I need to be able to show the client a “hidden link” where it can be previewed… and of course i need to do all this while leaving the existing site (static- not wordpress) untouched.
Have done this tons of times when launching static sites, but not with WordPress…. any suggestions are appreciated…September 29, 2011 at 2:25 pm #88236TheDocModerator
I would create a subdomain and build it all out there. Eg:
I’d use htaccess to make the directory password protected.
Then when you go to launch the site, you’ll move the entire directory into the root, remove the password protection, and update some of the links.September 29, 2011 at 3:54 pm #88244OniLinkCRMember
You can also do a folder instead of a subdomain. Make sure when you install wordpress that nothing of it is indexed by search engines.September 29, 2011 at 4:37 pm #88246TheDocModerator
I would definitely make sure it’s a subdomain. That way when you’re testing, all of the links will still be relative to the root.October 4, 2011 at 9:22 am #88454joelinskMember
