One theme for several sites? (2 posts)

    I have several sites, where I'd like to use the same theme, hosted in only one location, is that possible?

    I'm looking for something like symlinking, so that when I modify the theme in one location, it is reflected on all the sites.

    Then I'd only have to maintain the themes files in one place.

    You could write a theme with the images all hosted in one place (and retrieved by each viewer's browser); but the PHP files, which are executed on your server, have to be locally stored (they are read from the local filesystem, not via HTTP).

    If your several websites are all hosted on the same machine, you could perhaps make symlinks (or use hardlinks on un*x) to accomplish this on the filesystem side.
