I have built a WordPress website at e.g. domain.com and I am attempting to develop a Web Application at e.g. chrome.domain.com that will have a second installing of WordPress however the site is going to be the identical when it comes to content (aside from the Web addresses) and also have a different theme.

Can you really do that? Any suggestions how I possibly could do that? Possibly in some way managing a different theme for that application around the primary website? As I am also searching to create the website focus on both apple iphone and iPad again with Styles for every in order to allow it to be all look native.

Ideas on this is much appreciated. Thanks.

If you're able to leverage CSS for all the various conditions, you could utilize javascript to load the atmosphere/theme-specific CSS.

I'd just pull within an Feed out of your primary site and employ that as displayed content in your sub-installations. You could begin by searching here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/feedwordpress/

I recommend you to definitely take advantage of WPMU, which now's Network within the latest wordpress release. What this may is to let you make use of a single install of wordpress as a number of wordpress blogs. After that you can only use a style and tell wordpress to show what's on primary wordpress blog about this blog.

While using above strategy, could make you use a single database for your wordpress blogs (known as as network blogs) as well as help in making a them speak with one another (e.g. here you would like the chrome.domain.com blog to show posts from domain.com blog)

A far more more information are available at: Create a Network

To show posts from primary blog (that is generally id= 1), make use of a function like:
(the below function is simply a good example) inside your chrom.domain.com theme's template file

function get_recent_blogposts_wpmu($blog_id,$show){
 wp_reset_query();
 switch_to_blog($blog_id);
 global $post;?>
 <?php $my_query = new WP_Query('showposts='.$show.'&order=DSC');
 while ($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post();
     $do_not_duplicate = $post->ID; ?>
     <li class="post_link"><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a> </li>
        <div style="float:left;margin:5px 0 0 10px;">
        <?php the_content(); ?>
        </div>
 <?php endwhile; ?>
 <?php restore_current_blog();
}
