    Hi, i am new to wordpress and would like to know if you have to install a new theme for new sites if you want to have multi sites.

    I have a theme which i bought and i would like to know if i want to use the same theme for more than one site would i have to install that theme under different domain names or can i run it from one site.

    any help would be great

  2. Per the GPL, you can use the theme on all the sites.

    just found out it means General Public License, so basically you just use your theme and upload it to different urls

  5. WordPress is licensed GPLv2 or later. All plugins and themes are also GPLv2 compatible. Therefore, unless your theme has some contrary license (which would mean we kinda blacklist it here), you can use it on all your sites.

    With regards to Multisite, no you don't upload it to different URLs. You upload it once and activate it on all your sites :)
