So I’ve finished redesigning my first-ever client’s website, he is delighted with it and I’ve tidied everything up, ready to go live. I’m a designer by trade but I tried the developing myself, and Local WP was a massive help, and there were ups and downs during the process but I got there.
Now here’s the part that, as a designer and not actually a developer, is scary for me:
PUTTING THE DESIGN ONTO THE CLIENT’S WORDPRESS SITE.
I know that there are plugins which help with this process but a lot of tutorials online seem to specify methods for loading onto an empty domain, rather than a domain with a website already on it.
• Does anyone have any preferred plugins to help with this process? And obviously, to back up the client’s current website in case something goes horribly wrong and my site won’t work, for some obscure reason?
• And there’s a WooCommerce shop as well, is there a way to copy all the client’s shop settings and just transfer them over to the WooCommerce plugin on my new site?
Any help at all will be much appreciated, so thanks in advance.
