thanks in advance to all.

I'v just enabled multi site on my domain with the sub domain option.

I was wondering if there is an option to overwrite specific page templates only in the sub domain site Iv created ? I'v couldn't find any folders or files that only associated just with the sub domain.

thanks in advance to all,


No, the template hierarchy does not contain Site specific templates.

Instead, consider using a child theme, allowing you to override a template specifically in that child theme, yet still use the parent/base themes templates for everything else

  • Thanks for the quick reply sorry, but I'm not sure I understood. like creating a site without multi site option ? – Osh Jul 9 '18 at 11:48
  • Create a child theme for each site, and activate the child theme. I strongly recommend researching what child themes are. My answer has nothing to do with creating content or sites – Tom J Nowell Jul 9 '18 at 12:35
  • thanks man , that's what I was looking for , the problem is I'm when multisite network is enabled where should I create those folders ? on the word press dashboard the virtual sub domain created by word press has a child theme, but its virtual its working with the same theme as the parent. in cPanel there is no separated folder for my subdomain, hope I'm clear haha – Osh Jul 9 '18 at 12:43

  • @Osh the wp-content folder works exactly the same way under a multisite as it does under a single site, everything goes in the same place it always did. If you're looking for a site specific folder, you won't find it because there is none, that's not how multisite works. – Tom J Nowell Jul 9 '18 at 17:56
