How do Pro Sites and New Blog Templates interact?

My Pro Sites setup has 3 levels: Free, Standard, and Pro. I’m using the Premium Themes and Premium Plugins options in Pro Sites. One of the premium plugins, for example, is the AddThis Social Sharing plugin.

Can I just make *one* template that includes AddThis, and then let ProSites filter it out for non-Pro members? Or do I have to make multiple templates, one for each of my 3 levels?

Also, do I have to make a separate template for each of the themes I will be offering my users?

Thanks in advance,

    Hey there.

    Pro Sites is a blog upgrade plugin, so you don’t get to that part until after the registration for a new site. So by this point the template is already used and cannot be changed.

    Without some custom stuff this isn’t possible by default.

    Aaron is looking at changing how Pro Sites works so that it’s done during the sign up process. Once that’s finally done (no ETA) it might be possible to put in some logic so that is lets you choose the template based on the level you’re signing up to.

    I’ll move this over to the feature request area for now.
