Can I install a template while on a temporary URL?

Yes you can! Whether the template is being installed on a temporary URL or permanent URL you can use %SITE_URL% placeholder code within the html itself for all images.

So, instead of using or
you would use %SITE_URL%/images/imagename.jpg

Just upload your images for the template into the images folder and use that placeholder code as shown above. Then all images for the template itself will show up once the design is installed.
