I downloaded the free Wootheme Irrestible and if installed on a stand alone Wordpress, works very well.

Now, if we enable Multiple Sites on 3.x and set this theme to be the theme of a new site it simply does not work out-of-the-box.

As WooThemes Support is only for paid customers, and being this a free theme, I can ask for support directly, so I'm kindly ask here for any help.

current site with IrrestibleTheme using WP 3.0.1 multi site enable is located at

As I don't know what might be wrong, here is all settings to this 2nd website:

You really need to specify how it does not work. There are no multisite-specific theme tags. 99% of the themes out there for WordPress work in a network.

If you're getting errors, check your error logs.

If it's not grabbing image th8umbnails, that's a known issue - not with multisite or the timthumb script, but how the theme itself calls the images.


Edit: actually, I have tested the Irresistible theme in mu. Worked for me. A quick checked reveals it's looking for images in a subfolder that is not there.

no errors, just what the page shows, looking at the code, CSS is not loading, but I have no idea what are the setup that I need to set. All values are the default values. If I use the same theme (exactly same files) in the first website, works like a charm. – balexandre Oct 26 '10 at 15:55
regarding the images, it's looking at the right places and all images are there (or you couldn't see the myWrittings img) -> balexandre.com/temp/2010-10-26_1758.png – balexandre Oct 26 '10 at 16:00
as a personal question, what trick do we need to do to use domain.com/blog as blog is a keyword and we can't use to specify a sub website? – balexandre Oct 26 '10 at 16:01
I downloaded a fresh installation and uploaded again, started to work ok :) – balexandre Oct 26 '10 at 16:07

I assume you are using WordPress 3.0+ then by default any new themes are not enabled for multisite.

  1. You must log in as a Super Admin
  2. click on the Themes option in the left.
  3. Find your theme and click ON to enable this on other blogs in the network.

Go to WordPress Super Admin http://codex.wordpress.org/Super_Admin_Themes_SubPanel
