newbie here… no pages on site other than index.html “coming soon”
I want the site to be wordpress-based, and I’m pretty sure I’m not going to put it into a subdirectory. But while I’m playing with templates etc. I don’t want people to see the site.
I was thinking I could do this … tell me if it will/won’t work:
- Do the one-click install of WP, no subdirectoy.
- Keep both index.html and the WP-generated index.php in root. (I tested, and by default it appears that index.html comes up first if people just enter the domain name as the address).
- Add a robots text file that prevents search engines from indexing anything (temporarily)
I know people could see the site by entering foobar.com/index.php, but if they’re working that hard then they’re welcome to rubberneck.
Does this sound like a plan?
