I did some searching in the forums here for theme switching through the url and came up with this link:

http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/use-one1-wordpress-installation-for-all-of-your-themes/6598

Is this still a best practice or is there an updated method?

Thanks!

I think thats still the most common method used, perhaps wpmu is worth a try as well.. also uses just one install.

Then again i haven’t really compared anything because i use the first method.

Good luck :)

Using wpmu for this is like use a truck to drive in a nail.

Theme Switcher is not a good solution. I’m using wpmu for my themes because in each theme i created i am using different content, different custom fields or different plugins. Theme switcher just changes the theme not the actual content or custom fields.

Yes indeed. You could also install WordPress with a different suffix. there was a little tutorial how to do it I think it was just a little change in the config file.

Wordpress 3.0 which will be released in about one month will support multiple “sites” for one installation. Its basically merging with WPMU with the next release.

So if you are not in a hurry wair for 3.0 to release or grab a nightly build of 3.0 and use it :)

Yup – I happen to use WPMU simply because it supports various sites (each with unique content) but keeps one plugin/theme library – it’s awesome and it’s crazy easy to manage. When this gets merged with 3.0, I’ll be even more excited.
