Toilet help

Need some help guys! I'm trying to get my toilet up and running BEFORE tiling. Is there a way to do this - installing the toilet temporarily to the subfloor/cement board?

If the flange is in place but too high since tile is to be installed, I would think you could create a platform out of plywood to mimic the missing height.

I haven't put the flange in as of yet but want to get the toilet usable (which is why I want to install on the subfloor/cement/floor).

Also, when I get ready to put the floor down, will it damage anything treating the toilet as a "toilet repair/install of new toilet", meaning taking the screws out of the flange to put the new floor in and then doing the toilet install?

Figure the height of the floor and install the flange... Install the toilet temporally as mitch suggested and yourself. Some scrap pieces of wood or flooring same height as flange. A couple pieces this way and thats way so the toilet sits on them securely... Dont over tighten bolts as you may crack horn..

Thank you so much! This is what I thought but wanted to make sure so I don't have to fix something again that I'm already trying to fix. BTW, what is the "horn"?

The horn is the bottom of the toilet with the holes for the bolts, Basically you can crack the toilet if its not sitting around the complete base if you know what I mean...
