locking themes in multisite

Hi, I am trying to setup a multisite where after I create the first example site, I was going to use your New Blog templates plugin to replicate example site after users sign up for a new blog (was going to use Blog and User creator for this).

So on my network I have a few themes installed, but I only want to allow microsites access to the one theme I setup in the new blog template. In other words I dont want them to have access to the theme I am using for the main "parent" blog site.

What is the best way to do this? Is there a way to either manage themes on a blog by blog basis? or even make the appearance panel disappear, though this poses the added issue of users not being able to edit the widgets.

Thanks!

    Right, but there are themes (like the one I am using on my parent site) that I don't want available to microsites that are created.

    In other words I want to make lets say 2 out of 4 network installed themes UNAVAILABLE to the network because they provide more features than we want to give microsite users to choose from.

    when I look in the themes tab under Sites > All Sites > "sitename" > edit > Themes, it only shows me themes NOT available to network.

    Is there a plugin I can use to manage themes better?

    Thanks :slight_smile:

    Yes, that's how it should be.

    That means that all Network Enabled themes are available in Subsite > Appearance > Themes but via Network Admin > Sites > Edit the super admin has the power to allow a sub-site to use one of the network disabled themes.

    Thanks
