How to create a WordPress staging site with cPanel
A staging site (also known as a test site or development site) is a duplicate of your live site. It allows you to make changes privately without disrupting your live site. This is a very useful tool to learn if you are:
- testing plugins for compatibility,
- testing if your WordPress Theme is compatible with new WordPress updates,
- implementing major features and content on top of your current site,
- fixing glitches, bugs, or security vulnerabilities, and
- building a new site, among many other reasons.
How to create a sitemap in WordPress
What is a sitemap?
A sitemap (or ‘site map’) is a dedicated page that contains a list of pages on your site. It is typically presented in text format, and structured in a hierarchy; for example, categories (see our sitemap as an example). It may also contain links to documents, videos, and other important items that may be useful for visitors to find. Think of it as an index at the back of a textbook. It is important to learn how to create a sitemap in WordPress to benefit users to find information quickly and efficiently.
