I am planning to do some big changes on a webflow website that I am maintaining. Im quite a novice in using webflow, so this post is just for clarification on the best way to handle this situation now.
As the changes are rather big, I would like to edit the site while the original site still stays online. My customer also has to review the changes before they’re going live.
I thought about copying the whole project and finalizing everything in the copy on a subdomain. (or a webflow.io domain) The problem with this procedure seems, when I’m done, I have to add new billing to the new project and cancel the billing on the old project. This will end in higher CMS costs and doesn’t seem like a clean solution in general. (as the billing is annual)
Another approach would be, creating invisible subpages that I hide behind a password login in the original project. This also has some caveats as I have to duplicate all blocks and reconfigure them in all spots. This solution could end pretty badly, if a “live-version” block gets edited and confidential information gets revealed too early.
Is there some neat solution or some trick for/from webflow that helps me with this issue?
