"It's work in progress" solves that one, and it is a lot easier to handle "It's got a bug" than it is "I didn't ask for this. Why have you spent 2 months working on this? It's a complete waste of time!"

Well a refactoring should not introduce new functionality or bugs, but when a refactoring is only halfway done it certainly could alter the functionality!

I agree though on handling bugs vs explaining wasted time, but I was saying a larger refactoring before putting the new functionality

I have been known to do this on the live server of a successful eCommerce store.

I only ever do it if i must interact with the real data but if you do need to do it, just lock it down to your IP
Syntax: [ Download ] [ Hide ]
 
if ($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] == '65.myip.923.23') {
    // execute my code here
}
