Milo is correct, it is a very broad question. That said, what you want to do is totally doable, BUT, it is going to take effort.

There is no easy way in mergin two themes into one. You will have to set up a completely new theme, and then you have to start to extract every little piece of code from these two themes, add it into your new theme and integrate them them to work in harmony.

There is unfortunatly no other quicker way of doing it that I know off or came across. Make yourself ready for a bumpy ride and enjoy the ride

  • I have similar question. I have merged two themes & now I can see both themes functionalities. Both themes has CPT Listings & Projects. When I click on Add New projects it redirects me to homepage whereas for Listings it works perfectly. Do you know why? One more thing, when I keep capability_type argument for Project post type, Projects & Add New menu item doesn't show, any reason? Sep 28, 2017 at 14:01
