Different themes for different authors (4 posts)

    Hello all!

    I am setting up a family blog and my wife and I can't agree on a theme. I am trying to find a way to have one install of wordpress so that all of our posts go to one blog but have separate themes per author. What I am wanting is a default theme when you get to the site and then when you click on an author it will load that authors theme along with their posts. Please help.

    Could look at a theme switcher solution like:

    That isn't exactly what I was looking for but I could try it. Does anyone else have any ideas? I don't mind modifying the code I just have no clue where to start.

    It doesn't quite deal with different themes (unless you modify the templates enough to appear like they're different themes!), but my Post Templates by Category plugin may be worth a look:

    I'm unsure of the internals here, but it's possible it could be adapted for author-based, rather than category, template handling.
