Does Multisite WordPress themes matter?

Yes, it does matter if you plan to build more than one website. So, for someone who doesn’t intend to do this, you would be fine choosing a single license WordPress theme.

However, multisite WordPress themes do have a great advantage.

If you are an agency or freelancer which provides web development services, grabbing a multisite theme can really save you a lot of money.

If you also have some friends with a website, you could easily share the same theme and then split the bill so that you can save some money.

Conclusion

So, as you can see, most WordPress themes can be used on multiple sites except a few.

If you are someone who plans to build multiple sites, make sure you select a multisite theme. I hope I have helped you with this article. Have a good day ahead.
Peace!
