    Hello everyone,
    My question is regarding directories, themes and plugins, their placment and hierarchy.

    For example, if I create network, with two sites. And I enable, 1 theme and 1 plugin for both of them. Then I want to change this theme style or maybe even code in it, does it change for both of them or only for one?

    To be more concerete, When I enable my theme for another site, does it copy this theme for him, in his own direcotry or it uses theme directory form main, my network directory?

    all sites use the same theme files. you can not code in the themes for individual sub-sites but you can add a plugin like WordPress.com Custom CSS which will allow each sub-site to add their own styling. out of the box without this plugin, some themes allow for some modifications for individual sub-sites like header or background.

    thank you for your fast answer.

    then I'm gonna make a catalgoue with themes, and for every site (client)
    I'm gonna load individual theme.

    like if i have theme "twelvesmthng" to show potencial user, and then copy/rename it "clientname" and edit individually.

    Is there in this priciple any problem I could run in ?

    Thanks

    you can modify and rename any theme as you wish. the theme can only be installed once by the network super-admin. from there you can go to a sub-site dashboard, still logged in as network super-admin, and activate a theme individually for the sub-site.
