Can I change the colors/backgrounds in Builder?

If I already have a regular website & current domain, how do I change it over without interrupting anything? I know I'll want to play around with Builder for a while before making it live. How does that work?

Thanks!

Kathy

Yes.

Please watch http://ithemes.com/codex/page/Style_Manager#Style_Manager_Video

Such changes can also be of course done by editing style.css file.

You might want to set up a server on your computer, take a full backup of current live non-Builder site, restore it on your localhost, use Builder on it and once it is customized and ready, use BackupBuddy again to replace (delete and migrate) non-Builder site with Builder one.

My main website is a regularly hosted website. I also have a smaller wordpress.org hosted site. Could I build the "main site" on the smaller wordpress site and then transfer it to the other domain name once it looks like how I want it to look?

What I understand is that you have a self hosted site like mysite.com and a blog at wordpress.com like mysite.wordpress.com.

If so, it is not possible to install/migrate Builder or any other theme of your choice to wordpress.com hosted blog.
