Use Multiple WordPress Themes on the Same Domain

JFCStudio 8 years ago in Blogs and Content Management Systems / WordPress 0
Hi, I would like to install a blog in my website that is actually build around a wordpress structure, and I would like this blog not to use the same theme than the one website uses.

I have read somwhere that it is possible to instal a "blog in the blog" by creating a subdomain of the website. eg. http://www.xxx.com is the primary site, and http://www.xxx.com/blog to make possible touse then a different theme installed in this subdomain specifically.

It looks like I can create a subdomain with installing wordpress again in the Cpanel, though I can also create a subdomain in the cpanel. I would like not to damage my website, so I prefer to make sure upfront that I use the good way to do so.

Thanks in advance for your answers.
Hello JFCStudio,

Yes, when installing Wordpress, if you specify a subdomain to install the new instance into, cpanel will create it and it will have no affect on the existing site.

This means you can have www.yourdomain.com and www.yourdomain.com/blog as separate instances and with separate themes, plugins, etc.

Best Regards,
