What is it?
Website Pro users are now able to create a staging site from a backup of the live site.
Why is it important?
If a user’s website is broken or has a plugin that is messing up a certain page it can be tough to properly diagnose the issue and test changes to identify a solution. With this new feature users have the ability to test and compare the live site with a previous backup in the staging environment before choosing to restore it.
How will it work?
When creating a staging environment in the Staging tab, users now have two options: to enable the staging area or create a staging area from a backup. By creating a staging area from a backup a user will have access to all the plugins, themes, and content that was saved in that backup in their new staging environment.
Who gets it?
All Website Pro users have access to this feature.
