Domain Access - can't configure each sites theme settings?

Having problems configuring each site themes settings when using the Domain Access module?

Firstly ensure that you have the Domain Theme module enabled - not just Domain Access!

​Don't try change each sites theme settings via Appearance > Settings. That works fine when setting your Global Theme settings, but it doesn't work the same as setting each sites System > Site information, ie. by logging into each site and going to that page and saving. 

To change each sites theme settings go to the Domain config page (/admin/structure/domain), and edit the site you want to change via the edit domain link. Within that area you will notice that there is a Themes tab. In there you will be able to configure each sites theme settings.

This fixed an issue we were having where our Omega sub-theme settings were being overridden each time the cache was cleared. Many thanks for the tip!

If you are trying to update an admin theme, you'll need to edit the domain and go to the settings tab instead of the theme tab to edit that info.

The Domain Access module is in the process of being ported over to Drupal 8. There isn't an offical release yet, but the module is available at: 

As of writing the underlying API is stable, but there are things like 'views' integration still pending.
