But most of us don’t have the design skills enough to code up a template and make it look good as our liking.

WordPress is known for its flexibility with themes and you can absolutely use more than one WordPress theme on a site at same or different themes on different pages/posts . It’s possible to assign whatever theme you like to specific pages or posts with a plugin called Multiple Themes. The plugin menu provides detailed instructions on how to use it,  each section on the settings page is explained in full detail so in this article we will try to summarize those settings for you.

Note: Make sure that the needed themes are available in WordPress . You can install as many themes as you want, but you can only have one theme activated at a time.
