Whats the best way to cope with forum updates & our custom templates?

Should we have an offline "staging area" copy to test on?

What do we do if functionality gets broken?

I don't want to yank the forum off line

Is there a preview or code compare function coming in the new version?

any advice - appreciated

If you can keep all your edits in EXTRA.css (you can still have a customized unique style) by doing soley css changes you'll be able to update right away without turning the board/forum offline. I think the longest time it took for me to update my style was 5 minutes at most, most of the time instantly.
