Running WordPress On Your PC

Geeknews.net is running WordPress. And thanks to this article from Geeks Are Sexy, my life has been made just a tad more sane.

You see, I’m a relative newbie to WP but i’m already a big fan. When I started hosting this site I settled on the Binary Blue theme, while I like most of its look and feel, i’m regretting some of its cumbersome features and would like to switch to a new theme.

The good news is that switching to a new theme in WP is so easy it’s almost ridiculous.

The bad news is that I have so many small custom changes in the php scripts and css files that I would have to invest at least 3-5 hours fixing up a new theme to replace it, meanwhile the formatting on the live site would likely be hosed or a little off-kilter until it was all cleaned up.

Welp, that article from GAS is a tutorial that walks you through the 9 steps to get WP installed and running on Windows XP, allowing me to tweak any new themes to my hearts content before transferring it to the live site.

The following two tabs change content below.
I'm an eternal optimist, follow a Buddhist philosophy, geek of many areas, entrepreneur, learning the Chinese language, a die-hard sports fan, love politics and nuclear submarines.
