New Blog Template only working in Back End

Greetings all, just purchased New Blog Template for use on a WP 3.2.1 multi-user setup and am thrilled about it potential. But I'm having a front end issue.

1.Install went fine.

2. I can add new blog sites in the back end, it asks for the template fomr the pulldown (I only have one set up) and it creates the new blog with all the settings perfectly.

3. But when I try to create a new blog from the front end, it defaults to the standard Twenty Ten theme with none of the changes I added (widgets, menu, header, posts, etc.) as if I didn't evenhave the NBT plugin installed.

No error message or anything, it just doesn't pick up the template I assigned as the default. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
