I have 5 WP websites that are installed under the same database. And, for three of them I would like to use the same exact TABLES. From my understanding, what determines which data table will be used is the active theme (set in wp_options table). Am I correct here? .
If so, is it correct to assume that if I use the same theme on all three, the content would all come from the same data table? Further, which configuration determines the active template in the wp_options table, is it the Theme name set in the style.css?
Context: These three website will use the same core functionality, in other words, same theme, but there will be significant layout differences and not all themes will offer all functionality. It is sort of lika A/B testing if you will..
Any thoughts on the subject would be aprreciated.
