How do you run two Wordpress blogs with different themes using one database where the content remains the same in both sites? The issue that I am getting is at the Domain mapping in both blogs.
Not sure if it will be enough but this two plugins should give you most of what you want Any hostname - change the content urls to reflect the domain in which the content was requested Domain Theme - change the them according to the domain name.
I haven't tested any of them but it looks like even if they don't work you can get useful pieces of code from them.
If you have two separate WordPress installations (one per domain), you can define
And change example.com to the name of the domain in question.
I'll try to explain how it might be done, but not shore it will work:
( these code should be added in
Now you should be able to change theme, plugins atc. for seccond theme, but all posts, taxonomies atc. will be dubbled in both websites ( wich is bad for seo bdw. )
if on seccond install you'll have some problems with links, add
but it wount solve the problem if you create some post in 1-st website, on seccond website it will link to first website..
I'll still post these asnwer, but it's not correct ( becouse of error described above ).
As a solution you could create 2 separet installs with different
or ypu could create a crone job on seccond install to pars every post, page atc from 1-st db to 2-nd ( as you have acces to them it would be easy )

That's duplicate content an google will rank both your sites badly for doing so.
I highly encourage you not to do so.
If you just want to share parts. Have a look at the
