I've come to the conclusion that I need a better understanding of the "New blog Templates" plugin.
In the instructions it states that the currently logged in blog can be made into a template by visiting the New Blog Templates page while logged in.
But I can't see that being possible when the New Templates Blog page is only accessible form the network back-end side. The instructions on the page clearly state what blog is going to be made into a template and I've never seen it say anything other than the primary blog. No matter how I log in. The only way to get to that page is to be a super admin.
The instructions on this site do not show the same screenshots, so I can't help but think there's some protocol that I'm missing.
Thanks in advance for assistance.
