I have always emphasized over reading and learning. Something which my husband is always against when I plan to write something. He always wait for my posts to be written while I always end up reading and browsing before I write anything. As per my habit, when I started just started writing about How-to posts for WordPress. I cam across so many questions like how shall I show my self hosted webpage of word press publicly without showing any of my credentials like Usernames, passwords or Emails. And that i have to edit even image if any of these is included. When I browsed about this issue, i found out something that I should have learned years back. The Microsfot Web matrix which enables you to practice learn , edit and when you are done, publish your website, apps and other development software. Where was this software when I was busy changing my themes and making customization over my self-hosted site. I should have used this instead of wasting so much of my time.
The Software enables you to have apps, blogs and many other development software in your local host or in other words your computer. And they are not indexed in google because you are not running it in a web server. The Server is your computer itself. Don’t get yourself into the depth of coding. It has an easy to go installation of both the software and the WordPress . And you will end up with a proper WordPress login and details like in a real self hosted one. You will have the same dashboard, themes, appearance, posts, categories, menus, widget and what not !
Many other use it for fully optimizing their WordPress site and than they can publish it later on when they buy their domain and web hosting. What is even more interesting is that you can mess with the CSS and stylesheets of the themes and make any change that you want without worrying about any changes in your Original site.
My first tutorial about Understanding WordPress Dashboard seemed satisfactory and InshAllah more details will come soon.
