I am new to wordpress. I have a few questions about wordpress.
I want to edit appearance of a live wordpress site. The site is theme based. My questions are..
1) Is there any way to copy the site to a test folder or subdomain before editing the appearance of the site?
2) If I change appearance of one page in that test folder/subdomain, will it change entire site? Is there a way that the changes done only in test folder? I do not want to disturb live site.
What is the best way to change pages appearance - one by one page or change in theme appearanace ?
3) I want to do this thing without any paid plugins.
4) If I take backup of pages by downloading the pages thru' FTP and if the site is disturbed while editing, can I upload the pages to restore the site?
