    Hi,

    currently we are using the Prose theme and I want to install the Modern Portfolio theme.

    What is the best way to do this to have the least disruption to the site as I am sure something is going to break or look bad before I can fix it.

    Is there a way to run a ‘non live’ version through the themes or a plugin where I can make the changes I need to before making the new theme live?

    Thanks

    Hi

    Best way really is to install the new theme on a local setup using something like xampp.

    Or if you really want to go a plugin route there is one I have used many times called Theme Test Drive, this plugin will allow you to test any theme as an administrator while your users still see the old theme.

    Hope this helps
