    On one site no. But if you use subdomains yes. Check out khadris WordPress | Just another WordPress site and khadris WordPress: Just another WordPress site they're both on the newagemagickship domain name but have 2 different themes cause they are on a sub domain. The first site is the main domain name the 2nd one is a subdomain located at tarot.newagemagickshop.info *Nothing on these sites but 2 different themes for demonstration.*

      Sort of - but it's not that you would have literally two themes activated at the same time. It's a matter of using the particular theme that has sales page etc templates included (eg OptimizePress, Profits Theme etc) - OR using some sort of plugin that allows you to create sales pages etc.

      I have OptimizePress for one of my membership sites and I love it. But I've gotta say that my new favorite tool is WP Sales Engine. You can install it on any WP site (as a plugin), and without throwing off the look and feel of your established site you can create all sorts of cool additional pages etc.
      I recently added it to one of my main established websites, and it allowed me to create some sales pages, and a totally new member's area (which i secured with a membership site plugin) - all without having to change the look and feel of the site. Optimize press on the other hand is a theme, so in order to add it to a site you would need to deactivate whatever theme is being used.

    If it's a single sales page simply use a Page Template Pages « WordPress Codex

    There are a few tutorials around to show you how.

    No, you can not. What you can do is to code a page and add it to the actual wordpress theme as @pjCheviot said.

    Yes! You can do this. I asked on another post about using two themes at once and someone pointed me to this plugin:

    WordPress › HeadSpace2 SEO « WordPress Plugins

    It allows you to set a different theme to different pages. So, in essence, you could set your current theme to your current pages, and an OptimizePress theme (or whatever) to your sales pages.

    I haven't tried it yet, but if you do, please point us to it so we can see how it works.

    I think you can't have 2 themes for one site, because I tried it too and I couldn't.

    It would be unwise to use two theme. The best option is to use sale page template here is the code
    PHP Code:
     <?php
    /*
    Template name:Sale*/
    ?>
    <?php
    get_header
    ('sale');
    ?>
      <div class="container">
      <!--content goes here -->
    <?php Get_sidebar();?>
    <?php get_footer
    (); ?>

      Why is that NOBODY reads the entire thread (hint: the link in JuryDuty's post!) before posting incorrect replies?

      Don't reply ONLY to the first post: read every reply before posting!
