Managing Content across several blogs

We are trying to create a series of sites that all contain the same content, which is managed from the main site. We’ve been able to use the Multipost MU plugin to achieve this, allowing users to publish across the whole wpmu install, while retaining modification control across all sites.

We have also been using New Blog Templates to duplicate the sites out. The trouble is, it seems the templates do not create the links necessary to maintain their edit-ability using the Multipost plugin.

Does wpmudev offer a multisite content manager? I didn’t see one but I figured I’d ask anyway.

Alternatively, any thoughts about a way to create these links during the initial theme copy process?

I’m thinking a plugin that checks for the multipost links and recreates them as the theme is duplicated could make this work. Any help or ideas would be terrific.
