I was idly wondering what theme to go with for this site. And now you’re curious, right? But remember when your dad wouldn’t tell you the answer when you were little and made you look it up? Well if you’re now wondering what theme you’re reading this one, leap over to “What WordPress Theme is That?” and you’ll find out for yourself.
Anyway, I was trying to pick a theme, but then I had an awesome idea. What if each page were a different theme? How fun and different would that be!?!?! But just like twaikus, someone had already thought of it. The Multiple Themes plugin will allow you to put different themes on the same site. Apparently there might be some limitations, especially with particularly plush premium themes, but let’s give it a try and see how it works! Otherwise you can just make your site a multisite and have each “page” actually be a different site. …and I can’t take credit for that one, either (I had only the vaguest glimmering of an idea in that direction), and wpmudev fleshed it out for me.
Speaking of wpmudev, they are so awesome, and really really nice; they had a free table at WordCamp last year where a very nice guy helped me with a vexing WordPress problem. For free. Just to be nice.
