    Using two themes on the same website

    Hello,
    Is there a way to use two themes on the same website (for example - Clipper & ClassiPress)?
    I know I can use two different WordPress installations but I prefer using it under the same installation and that a customer who register/login under Clipper will be logged in even after he will move to the ClassiPress page.

    The only way to do this would be to use the WordPress multisite.

    Have your main site as www.yoursite.com then the secondary site as subsite.yoursite.com or www.yoursite.com/subsite

    Using WordPress multisite allows you to have the same users across both sites so they stay logged in when moving between the 2.

    You can't combine both themes together into 'one site' per say. Not without a tonne of coding.

    Wordpress Multisite with user management plugin is the way to go.

    Thank you, dalemiles.
    What are the cons of running a multisite?
