I hired someone to work with my forum theme,I want him to start from scratch without editing my live site. Is there a development way to do it? I want the final product uploaded once done, just like with Wordpress. What ways are available? Does he need xenforo him self or are there other ways? Please help..

you are allowed to run a passwd-protected development install of xf.
you could install one and have him work on that.

XenForo allows a password protected test board, which you could create and allow him admin/ftp access if needed. You can put the current style on it, and go from there.

Thanks guys, but how do I do that? In Admin panel? Sorry, complete newbie.

Just kind of curious but can't these questions be answered by the person who would be doing the styling? Or just looking for a second opinion? If you hire someone to do styling on XenForo they should easily be able to handle this :D

Create a directory on the server, create a new database, install another copy of the software in the newly created directory, pointing to the new database.

Password protect the directory using .htaccess.

I'm just looking into options how to handle the guy I hired. I also hired someone to do the customization of my site before and he screwed it up.

Good stuff, that's more why I was asking to make sure you have someone competent to do it. Good luck!
