Multisite Themes is a very simple plugin that I created to help administrators of WordPress Multi Site setups define different themes for different sites.
I was providing clients with wpmu/wpms sites and I needed a way to make only certain themes available to certain site admins.
“This is already doable when you edit a blog in the admin.”
Technically it’s not. Remember, a site is different than a blog.
A site contains blogs.
A site can be at Domain1.com while you have another site at Domain2.com, both with different sub-blogs underneath of them.
I’ll hopefully have this up on the WordPress Plugin Database soon, but until then you can save the below txt document as a php file and upload to your plugins folder, activate and you’re good to go.
To add a theme that is site specific, simply make a folder called ms-themes in your wp-content directory.
In the ms-themes directory you create another folder with the same id as the site you want to add the theme to.
Example for Site with id of 7:
Any themes placed in the /7/ directory will be available for site_id 7.
- Done: I plan to automagically create the ms-themes directory.
- Have option to automatically create site directories.
- Output display for easy recognition of what a site’s ID is.
No known bugs. If you have a problem, please contact me through my contact page.
