    Default changes instant

    Hi.

    Is it possible to design a new template that does not display on your site as you make changes?

    At the moment, any design changes I make show up instantly on the site.

    I would like to have a unique design, but obviously this will take time, and I dont wish my (predicted!)
    customers to see the site as it is being built and updated.

    Regards Chris

    You have two options:

    You can make another copy of Zen Cart in a different directory on your server, as long as you are allowed to have more than one database. This will be accessible from the internet, but only to those who know the path (e.g. www.yourstore.com/testshop/).

    You can set up a server package on your home computer and do development work there. This is very convenient - no FTPing required to edit files - but will not be accessible from the internet, so you can't show others what you're doing. Also, depending on your computer and your site, it may run slow due to the heavy database use. See this article in the wiki > Customisation > More Advanced for full instructions.
