    The simple way would be to use the 'maintenance mode' official plugin - search for it within wordpress.

    Or if you have a site already up and don't want to put it in maintenence mode, you could either set up a subdomain, block all search engines from it and use it as your development playground, and when it's done, you can back it up and replace your old one with it, or point the WP database location to the new one in your subdomain.

    You can also completely offline edit wordpress sites using XAMPP, this link is a good tutorial on how to get going.

    A Brief Look at the Technologies Involved ? PHP: PHP Hypertext Preprocessor, is the language in which WordPress is written ? Apache: It is a web server, that we are going to use during the development phase. ? MySql: This is the database, which stores all the information. The pleasant part is that we do not need to have a deep knowledge of any of the above in order to build a website using WordPress. i.e. mintyrich.

    Download XAMPP XAMPP is a package installation which provides us with all the recourses discussed with one installation and requires no genius skills (as in case if you try and install PHP, Apache and MySql each manually) XAMPP distribution is available as a free download at mintyrich.

    Install XAMPP The installation process is easy, once the setup file is downloaded all you need to do is keep on clicking through the process.

    You can get your desired object.
