Extra PRO License for staging site(s) in /staging?

I’m hosted on Bluehost, and they create their staging sites in a subfolder off the main site (site.com/staging/...).  

When support for staging sites was announced at the start of the year, they didn’t support this structure, only domains or subdomains.

So, couple questions:

  1. Any progress in supporting the subfolder approach for staging?
  2. I happen to have a 3 site license and only 2 production sites.  Is there any issue with using the 3rd license in the staging site for site A, disconnecting it when I’m done, and then reusing it for the staging site for site B when needed?

Not sure about 1 but for 2 you won’t have problems deactivating and reactivating on another staging site.

Another approach might be to use Local to develop sites without having to activate an elementor licence:

You won’t have any issues. I’ve actually got Elementor Pro installed  on WP in a subfolder and it’s working fine.

Here’s my EP test site… in a subfolder.

Thanks for the info.  Wasn’t aware of Local.  I’ll take a look at it.  Thanks again!
