I’m building a site that is broken up into two views (or sections): College and Corporate.
» See it here

When the College tab is active, the site will use college-styles.css (orange background)
When the Corporate tab is active, the site will use corporate-styles.css (blue background)

Some pages are global (content is the same for college/corporate) Some pages are specific (content is different for college/corporate)

So there will be one navigation set up for college and one for corporate

Also, ideally the pages/links will be as follows:

  • /college/why-us
  • /college/who-are-we
  • /college/how-we-do-it
  • /college/our-work
  • /college/our-blog
  • /college/connect
  • /corporate/why-us
  • /corporate/who-are-we
  • /corporate/how-we-do-it
  • /corporate/our-work
  • /corporate/our-blog
  • /corporate/connect

What is the best way to handle this? I remember a few years back where it was popular for sites to have two stylesheets (usually a light and dark version) and allow the user to select one. But I need more than just a style switcher, I need to load a whole new page and navigation. Also, ideally there would be a way to not have to create duplicate pages for the ones that are “global”.

Global pages

  • who-we-are
  • how-we-do-it
  • our-blog
  • connect

Specific pages

  • why-us-college
  • why-us-corporate
  • our-work-college
  • our-work-corporate

One way that was suggested was to create a blank college page and a blank corporate page and then make a college version of every page (why-us-colloge, who-we-are-college, etc.), a corporate version of every page and make them child pages of college/corporate. But I don’t really want a separate blog for both, nor a separate connect page for both.

Thoughts, ideas? Any help/input would be greatly appreciated.

Create WordPress template with name College & Corporate respectively.

Then add some code in your header.php. Refer is_page_template(). With this method WordPress will identify which template you are using and will apply CSS related to it.

You can use Default template for rest of the pages.
