    I’m running multisite, the themes I am using are DirectoryPress, EmployeePress & ClassifiedsPress.

    All three sites need to have the same appearance (ideally the ‘Clean’ template from DirectoryPress), but the templates on all three themes are different, does anyone know how I can accomplish this?

    im trying to use more than 3 themes. but in my domain is only xhtml. the link will go to different themes from your site directory. i hope can help.

    @mark, seo will affect if 3 wp(wordpress) , or 3 themes installed in hosting area?

    Andy your best bet would be to run the network on WordPress have have them all in seperate sites, you’ll need to customize the header/footer for each so they appear the same.

    @im unsure i follow your issues (my domain is only xhtml)

    SEO wont be affected for using multiple themes on one site no.

    Hi Mark,

    I’ve set the site up so that each site appears the same (header & footer).

    I want to stick to the ‘Clean’ template from DP, so using ftp I have copied the clean template to both employee theme & classfieded theme and renamed the templates accordingly:

    employeepress-clean
    classifiedstheme-clean

    but a box/border surrounds all the content within EmployeePress and ClassifiedPress, whereas this doesn’t happen with DirectoryPress (see screenshots)

    Apart from that, merging the sites is looking very straightforward :)
