WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

i'm hosting several sites. they all have the same base theme that i need to install. I want to develop this theme and have them updated on all the sites simultaneously.

I have the following folder structure

/theme/
 \ mytheme

/domain/ 
   \ foo.com 
   \ foobar.com
   \ foosite.com

Would there be any issue with symlinking each site with my theme into each site's wp-config/theme/ folder? Not interested in multisite. Had to developed sites seperately.

That will work fine - just make sure they all have read and write access to that shared folder. The symlink command should be:

ln -s

StackOverflow question: Can two different WordPress blogs on the same server use a common theme folder?

Ah thanks for that. –  chrisjlee Aug 4 '11 at 23:49

Or, do a multisite install -- the themes directory is shared by all sites and each theme can be enabled on a site by site basis.

right. but that's not the question. –  chrisjlee Aug 5 '11 at 4:15
