    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!

    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.

    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.
