Never road-test a plugin, theme, or concept on your live website. If something were to break – the damage might be visible to everyone – or mean downtime while you repair the damage. You also don’t want to take your website offline while you test and play with new ideas. The old “Site down for Maintenance” screen is a thing of the past.
These days you simply clone your website to a ‘Staging Area’ – here you can throw ideas around without fear of breaking anything. When you are confident that your website will benefit from any developments you tested – apply them to your new site.
