Hello everyone, I'm having a problem with wp multisite and I'm using the parallax theme. I'm trying to make the home page of my sub sites the landing page template.
But every time I choose the specific page as my home page on settings it automatically changes to the default template (with header etc). How do I choose a specific template as my home page on wp sub sites?
Can anyone point me towards the right direction? It would be a great christmas gift:)
yeh i don't think it will do what you ask
i have wp multisite too, and just did a quick test with the same results as you
i'm thinking that because your main site is "the main site" the settings simply don't apply
it only works on the sites you create (subs)
Hmm I'm a little confused, I'm the one creating the sub sites. Can't figure out why the landing page template won't stick when I choose it as my front page on my sub-sites.
what you need to do is delete the front-page.php from the theme on your sub sites, this will solve the issue.
this has been tested and works.
if your using the same theme for both the main site and the subs, and the main site requires the front-page.php
then simply make a copy of the theme and rename it (be sure to change the name in the functions.php, style.css as well as the subfolder name)
so then you will have 2 themes
one for the main and one for the subs (without the front-page.php)
WP Multi doesn't work exactly the same way a stand alone site does.
Great advice, thank you Jamie!
