How do I use different vertions of the same theme for my member blog?

    I’m modifying the very cool ‘Woo Themes Irresistible blog theme’. I can see variations of the layout (with the same styling) being used for different member blogs. Example: Some members might want more of a video layout, some want to have more of a public profile and no video layout. Regardless of layout I would like the styling to be the same, which is why I want to base these options off of the same theme. Do I just duplicate my ‘Irresistible’ theme folder, call it something else and upload to my theme directory? Can’t be that simple :) Thanks in advance

    There are two real ways to do this.

    1. You can copy the theme multiple times, and then open the .css file inside the theme. In there you can change the name at the very top which will allow you to have it be a little different. Then you should make your changes to that copy as well as make a new screenshot.png.

    2. You can keep the original theme and make some “child” themes based off of it.

    This is also not a BuddyPress-related question and you’d have been better of taking it to the WordPress forum and searching for similar topics.
