The new Instant WordPress portable and standalone programming tool can be used even when saved in a USB dongle. This tool can be used to easily manage or create websites. This is a local installation of WordPress which can be run on a PC without affecting any running program in the machine. This wonderful tool can turn your computer into a WordPress development server anytime. For FREE!!!
Instant WordPress is designed with a built in, PHP, MySQL and Apache web server. So upon logging in thru the WordPress admin link, one is able to see the dashboard where comments, posts, site stats, themes etc, so can be easily managed. It will also show defaulted dummy posts and even pages so that you do not need to create one when testing a theme. These dummy posts will show how the theme being tested will look like with posts on it. Another advantage of this is that the theme being tested on the website will not be showing as live while it’s being tested. You don’t want your readers to see your testing environment or even make them think that they’ve gone to a wrong website.
This tool is best for non-techy bloggers. In fact the tool can be set up fast and without making you sweat or alienate you with technical terms. WordPress is a blogging platform that is very easy to host without requirements that are hard to comply with and so the same principle is being followed by the instant WordPress.
