Using multiple themes on a WordPress website


Using multiple themes |

Of course, the easiest way is using an available plugin, but the last time did not have any plugin support this. Saying that does not mean no, because now there’s a free plugin that makes it easy to use a variety of interfaces for any page, with customizable menus and widgets for each interface, that plugin is Multiple Themes.

Features of Multiple Themes

One great thing about this plugin is that it allows us to use any interface for any URL, not just the category, tag, post or page. It allows us to use another interface based on a query or query with a certain value. For example, you can apply a special interface for the search page with the query is =
Or if you are using some other parked domains pointing to your main site, the plugin may also allow you to set up custom interfaces for these aliases.

How to use Multiple Themes

[box type=”note” align=”” class=”” width=””]
Prepare interface
To use this plugin, your interface must be uploaded to the website at / wp-content / themes / or downloaded from the WordPress Themes library.[/box]
When multiple theme plugin installation completed, we will set up in Settings -> Multiple Themes plugin.

Here we will have sections that include:

Settings: basic settings to choose the theme for the homepage, subpages.
Site Aliases: Set the aliases domain name to support plugin-defined paths, if you have used a parked domain to point to the main website.
Advanced Settings: Set theme for full post or full page.
Theme Options: Guide to set up menus and widgets for this plugin.
System Information: The information of the host system is running the website.
Help: Instructions for submitting support requests to the author.
In general, I will guide some basic cases when using this plugin.

Use the interface for the homepage

To set up a custom homepage interface, we will go to the Settings section of this plugin and look for the Select Theme for Site Home section, where you will select the interface to use for your homepage.

This means that we will use the Hueman interface for the homepage. Here the plugin will not distinguish your homepage as a static page or a list of the latest articles, as long as the path is is that it is the homepage.

Set up an interface for any page

For example, if you want to set up a specific interface for a category, go to the Settings section of this plugin and look for the For An Individual Page, Post or other non-Admin pages, then add the URL of the page at the URL of Page, Post. , Prefix or other and select the interface to activate.

You can use any URL, including a post or a page.

Clear interface settings of a page

After setting the interface of any page that you do not want to use anymore, we can delete in the Settings section, in the Current Theme Selection Entries section and mark the Delete item on the page to delete and press Change to finish.

Set interface for all Post and Page

To set the interface for all other Post or Page (except for pages that have their own interface set up), you can access the Advanced Settings section of this plugin and find the Select Theme for All Pages section to set up interface for all pages, and Select Theme for All Posts to set the interface for all posts.


Set interface for the remaining pages

When using this plugin, you should set the interface to use the rest of the page instead of using the theme enabled in Appearance -> Themes, the reason a little bit below me will say. To set this up you go to its Advanced Settings section and find the Theme for Everything section.

Customize the interface when using Multiple Themes

Each interface has a different menu, Widget settings, so when using this plugin, we need to set these parts for the whole theme to ensure the interface shown as desired.

Setup Menu | Using multiple themes

You go to Appearance -> Customize in the admin page.

Then select the interface that needs to be set in the Active Theme by clicking the Change button.

Then find the Menus and assign menu items.

Setup Theme Options | Using multiple themes

With the interface has Theme Options (the option comes with the theme) using the Customize feature available in WordPress is too easy then, we can use the same way to set for each theme.
In some cases, the interface has a separate Theme Option such as this.

Using multiple themes
Then there is only one way is to enable the theme to edit Theme Options on the Appearance -> Themes and then access the Theme Option of the interface that edit.
To do this you should set up the default theme of the full page in the Advanced Settings -> Theme for Everything so that when enabled interface of the page will not be affected.

Note when enabling interface
When enabled interface Menus Settings, Widgets of each interface that we have set up before can be lost, so take note when using. It is best to use the interface all is Customize.

Epilogue | Using multiple themes

After learning a lot of different solutions, I found this plugin is the most user-friendly interface for the current stable and easy-to-use WordPress site, less hassle because WordPress by default does not support so use multiple interfaces at the same time can be a bit confusing and buggy, important that any solution fewer errors only.
Hope this plugin will help many of you.
