    I am a real newbie with WordPress. I just wanted to know if you can have different themes within the same site?

    I'm really looking forward to building my site.

    Thanks

    I'm really not sure what you mean by displaying multiple themes within one website.

    It is possible to download new themes. However, only one theme can be activated at a time.

    Good luck with your site!

    What I mean is can all the pages in the website have different themes? i.e. Hm page has a them but the contact pages has a different theme.

    I guess you would have to turn on the new theme, while turning off the old theme,

    By default WordPress cannot have different themes for different pages.

    I read in WordPress for Dummies that the way to accomplish the different looks is to use static pages. What do you think?

    Being new to Worpress, Dummies seems to be a pretty good book for the novice.

    While you cannot activate more than one theme at a time - It is possible to have a different look for every static page of your site - you accomplish this by creating page templates for your static pages - then style that particular template using CSS/graphics, etc. (making sure you assign the template to it's page in the WP admin panel - find that option to configure this in the Page Template drop down under Manage / Pages - then click 'edit' for the page you want to assign the template too - - you'll find the "Page Template" dropdown menu there.)

    You can set completely different looks/layouts on each page if you wanted to.. all within the same theme, using the same stylesheet, etc.

    I believe the book explains the use of static page templates in Chapter 16 ;)

    i spose you could modify your theme - or the theme - in such a way, that if it is a page, or if it is a single, or if it is a ... whatever..., it uses a different div tag. you can then style that div tag, or the tags, accordingly.

    but for a individual post - not toooo sure
