I've been looking around for a while now and still can't find a solution so am asking here. I have a site where anyone can sign up and create their own blog as a subdirectory of the main website.

What I want is for every blog to have the same navigation (in essence the same header), footer and sidebar as the main website of the network. I couldn't find what I was looking for in the WordPress Codex. Has anyone found a solution to this before or can point me in the right direction?

To achieve this functionality, You will need to install same Theme across all network website and enable it by default for them.

  • This would not provide the same navigation unless the menu items are hard coded into the theme. Widgets (sidebar & footer) would also have to be arranged on each site to match. Maybe expand your answer to include this information.
