Can I restrict creation of communities?

I have a multisite and I would like to allow all members to use the communities feature, but I want to restrict the community creation to only a few sites. Can I do this somehow using supporter or membership? Is there any way to do this at all?

    Hello Amanda,

    A change like that likely would have to be custom coded in the Communities plugin code, in communities-framework.php. A Supporter plugin could easily be made or a Membership Menu rule applied to restrict access to various or all of the Communities menus, but to restrict access solely to the creation of the communities would require some coding at this point.

    To that effect, Supporter provides a rather easy way to do that with the is_supporter() function.
