Shared theme directory across many sites?

Hello,

I have many sites that are sharing the same theme.

Is it possible to setup one common directory on my web-host that holds the theme, and then have a symbolic link from each wp-content/themes directory to it?

One concern is that there is a "cache" directory in the theme directory, that may get corrupted if many sites are using the same?

Thanks,
Doug

Hi, this shouldn't cause any issues. The cache directory is used to cache dynamically generated images. As long as your server is properly configured to handle symlinks, I don't think you'll have any problems.
