Hello! i am new in this great community of Genesis users!
I have a blog working on a free template, but i bought yesterday Genesis+Metro Theme and i want to use it in my blog.
I am not a webmaster, i have done all by my own, learning, reading, etc..
My question is…
Can i test the blog with the Genesis+Metro theme, without affecting the actual design?
I have visits everyday, i don’t want to make changes “on-air”
My idea is to test and make all the changes, and then, switch to the theme Genesis+Metro Theme, when everything work perfect!
Can i do that?
How can i do it?
I really appreciate any help from you, guys!!!!!!!!!!
thank you!http://www.comedera.comAugust 12, 2013 at 5:01 pm #55901
Well, you cannot actually do it with your current content. You can set up a demo website under your url… something like http://comedera.com/newsite. Install WordPress again there and then install Genesis & Metro. You can customize it there. When you are happy with it, then you can transfer the theme over to http://comedera.com and activate it.

anitac: last newbie question (i hope, haha)
wich folders should i copy? wp-content? or the themes folders only? (genesis and metro)
thank you for your help!August 12, 2013 at 9:27 pm #55946
When you are done, you would only need to copy over the Metro theme you customized. Nothing else.

P.S. Unless uploaded images through Media, added Posts/Pages, etc. I was assuming you only wanted to customize the look/appearance of Metro.

Well, i will upload some images, like a new custom header..
also i will create new content to show when i relaunch the website, but i think i can post it at the moment
