    Hi,
    I want to have in my wordpress blog, to use for one entry in my menu, a different wordpress theme.
    I don't want to use pages template of theme 1 and post template of theme 2, I would like for one entry (let's call it X), to use an another theme.
    My question is the following :
    Can I create a new database on my hosting service, install a second wordpress on it, and redirect with a pluggin entry X in my menu to specific pages of this second wordpress blog.
    What do you say?
    Is there a better solution?
    Thanks guys

    Probably easier to make a custom template for the page in question - otherwise you'd have two separate installs of WP and have to maintain them both.

    One other possible way would be creating a child theme and using the page.php template of theme 1 and keep theme to as the parent. It may be a little tricky but in theory sounds pretty doable.

    Personally I would go with what @WPyogi suggested since it would be a little easier to maintain. :)

    Ok, I'll try that.
    I found a tutorial here

    But the thing is .... God it seems complex

    I wanted to create a separate Mag in the site,
    in the menu, when you click on "Mag", it opens a new window that leads you on a blog like this :
    http://relogik.com/

    in fact it's more like a blog in another one.
    That's why I thought the best would be another database... I expressed myself badly, because I badly conceptualized it.
    Now it's better : a blog in another one.
    WHat do you think?
    Thanks for you sooo quick answer...

    So it doesn't have to be on the same domain?

    Yes it should be on the same domain, I want to visually dissociate the mag from the rest of the website. Also because it's a very different content, shouldn't be organised in the same manner
