This discussion relateds to plugins: Symbolic Links on dev box with plugins and stylesheets

I was wondering if the same problem exists for symlinking a theme to many different wordpress installs.

Example structure:

domain/footheme/ <- theme resides here

The following domains symlinks created here:




Example Symlink Creation

ln -s domain/footheme domain/myfoo.com/wp-content/theme/footheme


Due to project constraints i ended up just creating custom themes for both.

If i was to approach this now i would probably manage it by creating a git repository and maintaining multiple git submodules
