Support » Networking WordPress » Theme for Main Site Only

  • Resolved jw60610


    I don’t know if there’s an obvious answer to this question, that I’m missing:

    If I want to have a network and use a specific theme just for the main site, is there a way to activate one theme for this site only?

    I’m planning to use sitewide tags to display posts from the sub blogs, but I want to use a custom theme w custom taxonomies, etc and don’t want that theme available to normal users.

    Thanks so much for all the help you guys have given me.

    First, go to Network Admin -> Themes and make sure the theme is NOT network activated.

    Then go to Network Admin -> Sites and EDIT the site you want the theme on. Go to the Themes tab on that page and select the theme you want to use.

    Magic 😀



    Thank YOU. I had a feeling this was an easy one. Sometimes the easiest ones stump me.

    Don’t feel bad, it’s on the ‘could be better documented’ list 😉
