How do I specify different image dirs for different themes? (2 posts)

    I have two themes enabled with supposedly two different images/ directories. However, when I change a filename in my style.css for theme1, the filename also changes in the style.css for theme2.

    What determines the full URL for a MultiSite theme's /images folder?

    1) WordPress.com Custom CSS plugin (vis-a-vis The Jetpack plugin). That way edits to the theme on blog 1 stay on blog 1. The actual theme files do not change.


    2) Some trickery in the child theme would be needed.

    If theme2 is a child of theme1 already, then you must override in theme2 what appears in theme1. Any change to a parent theme will be reflected in all child themes.

    SO I offer this.

    Install your parent theme, but make both theme1 and theme2 children of the parent theme. Do not network-enable the parent theme.
