Forcing theme change (3 posts)

    Hi, I have a large multisite network.
    I'd like to change the theme on all the sites without doing each one manually. I've tried turning all the other themes off in Network Admin but the sites keep their old theme till I change them manually.
    Is there a way to do this?

  2. You can do it in the database: http://designgala.com/how-to-change-wordpress-theme-directly-from-database/

    Basically go in via phpMyAdmin and edit wp_#_options (where # is your site number) instead of just wp_options.


    Network Admin -> Sites -> Edit Site

    Click on settings and look for Current Theme - I will note I THINK that you have to use the full name, caps and all, to make that work.

    You may also need to edit Template and Stylesheet

    Good luck!

  3. There isn't a plugin to help, no.
