I am using the New Blog Templates plugin together with an LDAP authentication plugin. The typical behaviour of the LDAP plugin is that it will create a blog (based on the login ID) upon successful authentication with the Open Directory server. Site registration has been disabled as we do not want random accounts which do not exist on the OD server.
I have a default template set up (using the New Blog Templates plugin), which works fine. All new students that login successfully for the first time get a new site based on the active template.
We have got to a situation now where we need multiple templates (students in different grades), that have been individually customised. My question is, is there an easy way to allow students to select a template upon initial successful authentication against the OD server? The options within the New Blog Templates plugin depend on having site registration enabled, and is something which we do not want to pursue (unless it can be tied down to OD accounts only).
