How to Use Multiple WordPress Themes on One WordPress Website or Blog

Wordpress Plugin Friday

In this free wordpress training, I am going to show you a new plugin that will allow you to utilize multiple themes on the same WordPress Blog or Website.

Here is HOW this can be useful:

  • May be you are an Internet Marketer, and You Would Like to have a Special Theme to Serve and Show your Sales Letter Page, that is different from the rest of your site
  • Or May be you would like to show different theme for Your Blog Posts, and another Theme for Your Pages
  • Or May be, You Want Each Page to Have its own different theme
  • Or May be, You Want Each Post to Have a different theme

The above can all be accomplished, by an amazing free plugin called the “Page Theme“.

This plugin is amazing, because it makes it super easy to specify either your default theme, or page or post specific theme.

Check the video below, for all the details, as I walk you step by step, on how to install it, set it up, and use it, and also I provide couple of suggestions on how to avoid any issues with trick.

Now you have to be careful when using such a trick, because it kind of change how wordpress was designed, and how it supposed to work, but I tried it, and it appears to work with no problems.

Watch the video below, and let me know, what you think, by commenting below….

    Hi Tarek, I’ve done everything you said and it shows on All Pages page that I changed the theme however it won’t change on the actual page, they all still show up with whatever my default page theme looks like. Do I need to download wordpress to sub-directories??? Thanks :)

    Can you please email me all the info like your website URL, and what themes you are using, please use the contact form on the blog. What do you mean by the actual page?

    I followed all steps but the other themes template is not reflecting on page. all pages are using same template after changing the theme option also..


  8. getyourblogready

    It is possible that you have a plugin conflict…Disable all plugins, and try again.and let me know, how it works..

    I use the pagelines framework theme and I have not yet been able to get this page theme plugin to override the pagelines framework theme. Can you help. I have a lot of plugins installed and would hate to have to uninstall and reinstall all of those plugins to find out if it is interferring. I believe it is a result of the pagelines framework and would like to check that first. Do you have any idea if this is the primary cause?


  10. getyourblogready
    2 years ago

    Usually complex frameworks, can cause that….Unfortunately, since I don’t know, much about the framework, and what’s on your wordpress site, I can’t help you much.The way I would do it, it is not quick.. I would deactivate all plugins first, and try and see if it is a plugin issue.. if it didn’t work, then definitely a the pagelines framework, is interfering. Also..another option, may be you contact the plugin developer, and may be he/she can provide you with further assistance…

    1 question. Probably someone has the similar question with mine.How about a different page theme for the blog post. Lets say my homepage is my blogpost page, however if you look for that page in the “pages” list, you wont be able to change since its not in the list. My goal is lets say for example, ThemeA is my default, and I want my homepage/blogpage to look like ThemeB. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


  16. John Osmond

    One idea to avoid the conflicts with widget areas & menus is to make all your available themes child themes of the same parent. All my themes are child themes of twenty eleven so giving a page a different theme is easy. Thanks for the great video.


  17. John Osmond
    2 years ago

    It seems to have problems when selecting a child theme. It want to force the selection to the parent theme.


  18. CRwordpress
    2 years ago

    It works good as long as the theme is aplied on specific blog or post but, the widgets form 1 them to the other are getting missed, it just shows the widgets for the defult them and the seconday ones are getting missed, is there any workaround for this or should i have to make a Multisite network?

    Thanks!


    • Tarek A.
      2 years ago

      I can see the issue with widgets. And again, this is just a hack, I created the video, to show different possibility for an exceptional situation. Managing the site with these them, can be difficult, so please use only in extreme situations.
      Having multiple wordpress installations, is the way to go… this solution is only intended, for may be a single page…
      But having a multi site setup, is the safer and easier to manage.
      Let me know, if you need further explanation.

      Thanks,


  19. getyourblogready
    2 years ago

    I really doubt…that this works with themes and child themes…My experience that it just works with just regular themes.. Also keep in mind, this is not just a permanent long term solution.. this is just a hack, to keep things going, for some exceptional situation. Since you are altering the regular wordpress bahavior. Just keep that in mind… And thanks for posting your comment, and let me know, if I can assist you further.

  25. Tarek Alaaddin
    2 years ago

    If I understand your question correctly…everything will be managed from 1 WordPress Dashboard, and YES all 1 sign in, with the 1 account..This plugin and this implementation, has nothing to do with multiple accounts, and different logins. Hope this answer your question.


  26. wd7080

    Thanks for the prompt response! I highly appreciate this.I want to make a domain and sub domains with similar sign in for all users with different themes, what plugin to use for this purpose?

    I seem to have a problem. I’ve gone and set the theme for each of my pages and yet they are all stuck on the default theme. I am using themes I’ve designed in Artisteer, I don’t understand how that would effect anything however.

    For whatever reason I could not get this plugin to work for my site, I did however find another plugin that gets the same results. For those of you who may run into the same issues I did, try Jonradio Multiple Themes.

  35. globalref

    Hello! Was wondering, this solution will work with a default theme and a shopper theme ?I have a dog adoption’s association and I don’t want the shopper stuff (add to cart, payment etc) to be on my adoptions pages :S (sorry for my bad english ^^). Maybe better to add the shopper theme under a folder “shopping” ?

  41. OnlineProfitsFactory
    1 year ago

    I was told the same thing Mike, but now that I use this plugin, it sure makes things a whole lot easier. Obviously, you don’t have to create a sub directory to do show multiple themes. I guess a lot of people still don’t know about this plugin so that is why there is so much misinformation out there.


  42. Mike Thomas

    For sure, I’ve been using this plugin for a few weeks and it’s working fine, thanks again :)

    GREAT video, thanks!I am interested if this method will work with a directory theme, something like eList Directory WordPress Theme.I presume that the theme adds tables to the database. If you are switching back and forth between two themes for different pages, do you risk messing up the database?Hint: a new video would be great !


  53. Onyx Moon

    but you can’t manage the 2nd installed theme using it’s own provided theme manager in wp-admin?i’ve intalled 2 premium themes Jarida and ClassifiedTheme(by sitemile.com) both of them have own theme manager in wordpress default admin panel, if i have installed jarida theme as default then on multiple installed(Classified theme) i can’t access it’s theme manager. is there anyway to manage 2nd installed theme too?


  93. Tarek Alaaddin
    11 months ago

    Fuad….This is a hack, you are going to have to swich between themes, in order to do changes. This is not intended to fully manage 2 themes, at the same time. This is more intended, if you just 1 or 2 pages, that you want to use specific theme on. Please use a test site first. Before going and making this live on a production site.


  94. Fool Farang
    10 months ago

    GREAT NEWS! After installing the plugin, I performed the google page speed test and recorded a maximum change of +/-3 (using the “sliding door theme” and “Icy Theme”).The effect on the page loading speed (and SEO) is negligible!!! Please note that the speed of the page also depends on the theme used.


  95. h2o2go141

    Hey, This is exactly what i’ve been looking for. However once installed and configured nothing changes. I have the page specified to use a second theme however it appears in my regular theme. I am running wordpress 3.6 any insight on my issue? thanks

    or if I have something to contribute to the discussion.

    Usually it’s triggered by the sincerness communicated in the article I browsed.

    And on this post How to Use Multiple WordPress Themes on One WordPress Website
    or Blog | Get Your Blog Ready!. I was actually moved enough to drop a comment :
    ) I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s
    allright. Could it be just me or do some of the remarks come across
    as if they are coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on additional places, I’d like to follow you.
    Could you list all of all your public pages like your
    Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

    I love your plugin but I’m having problems with the Header.php of the default theme over riding my second theme. My default theme does not have a header but I have a slidshow header in the Header.php file of the default theme. I set up a page with the second them identified with “Page Theme” . My header still shows up even though that theme does not have a header.
    Installing Page Theme, it tells me it has not been tested with 3.8.1… Can’t wait for your update to such a great plugin. Your plug in makes this feature comparable with Joomla.
    Thanks again…
