I am looking for a tutorial that will show me how to install and troubleshoot a new site design while keeping our current site live. Our site was designed by someone else using a theme from MySiteMyWay and I am looking at some of their newer themes - but possibly may go with a different design co. I've become fairly familiar with customizing our current site by myself, but do not know how to create a new site and then migrate that - replacing the current one - once I've gone through the troubleshooting.

I'm pretty good at picking things up on my own - just hoping to get pointed in the right direction.

Thanks for any help!

Thank you for your question Karen!

Thank you for your question. You can <a href="">make a duplicate WordPress site for testing</a>. Follow the steps in that link and you can have a copy of your WordPress for development purposes.

Best regards,
