so I design my site, test it and then launch it.

Now I want to make significant changes to the layout etc and also add new features and offerings. I need to test all of this before releasing it to production.

What is the best way to handle this as I cannot fiddle around on my live site and its just too much work to redo all of the changes again on the production site after testing it all out on my test site. Also this is prone to mistakes that I could do in trying to do the same changes from test to production if one has to manually do them.


Any suggestions of how to handle this?

merchant - I did a whole series on that once upon a time and then the recording failed - and I never re-recorded it.  So now I will.  In the mean time - there are some good related videos here - /topics/copy-website/
