    Hi,

    I would like to be able to work on my site offline as well as on-line … how could I achieve this?

    Thanks

    Kate

    Do you mean on your desktop or do you mean in maintenance mode on your server where only you can see what you’re doing?

    I mean on my laptop.

    I realise that the databases would be different but I would like to be able to work on the design and widgets and pages occasionally at places where there is no wi-fi (eg at my children’s karate class!).

    Does that make sense?

    Thanks

    I think the free version of Desktop Server will work but keep in mind that you will have to keep backing the site up and go back and forth with your files. Doing it that way also could expose your files to viruses. http://serverpress.com/products/desktopserver/.

    *** Added*** You could also ask you cell phone provider if you phone is “hot spot” capable. My phone has it and if my internet goes down, I just turn on hot spot and can get to the internet.

    I use WAMP for local development. Comes with phpMyAdmin, Apache, and mySQL all packaged together. Makes setting up a WP site quick and easy. It’s for Windows.

    If you use a Mac, MAMP is the equivalent.

    This is a pretty good tutorial for getting started (some of the screenshots might be a little dated but it’ll give you what you want). http://sixrevisions.com/web-development/install-wordpress-on-your-computer-using-wampserver/

    Huge thanks

    I can tether my laptop to my mobile so I might try that for a bit but will have to watch my data usage!
