How can you test styles and templates without impacting users?

    I'd like to test new styles and templates and not bother my users by using the 'live' site.
    How can I do this?

    IMHO like all other testing (e.g. big upgrades ,add-ons,...)=> on an test board;)

    OK but since the license is linked to a TLD and requires that all subdomains point at the same install.... how do you do that?

    you are permitted one private test install.

    Meaning I need to install on a different box accessible only through localhost or assuming my domain is shamufish.com, or could I have both live.shamufish.com and test.shamufish.com on the same box running in parallel?

    To work on and test a new style just don't make it user selectable. You will still be able to select it.

    yes, or shamufish.com/test or whatever.
    just so long as it isnt open to the public for use.
    if you keep it permanently in 'inactive' mode you will be safe.
