Totally understand the disclaimer aspect. No way 100% of the suggestions will work 100% of the time. And it's the 0.00001% of the time something doesn't work...is when something will come back to bite you in the butt!

My main issue is I've had trouble setting up a test site. Tried doing it on my server...and it didn't work out (even with expert help). And tried doing a local test setup using products like XAMPP & MAMP...and couldn't get it to work ether. Setup instructions for XAMPP & MAMP just not detailed enough. I'm sure after I figure out how to do it the first time...it will make total sense.

Just not there yet with the learning curve! lol

Thanks
