I run a multisite that is aimed at connecting local businesses with each other and with their consumers. I would really like to integrate the option for users to have their own site in my network. To this end, I have downloaded and installed Pro Sites. I have two (more) questions:
1. It appears that all of the plugins and themes that are available on “my” website are now going to be available across the users’ websites too. I REALLY don’t want this to happen! Can I create a “level” that is not choosable by the user so that some of the plugins and themes remain the ‘property’ of just me as the super admin?
2. Is there a way of upgrading sites through the backendand bypassing the payment gateway? I tried to create a site after setting up Pro Sites and it wants me to pay myself! I know this is probably a very basic fix, but this is my first real dabble in MU in this fashion and I’m trying to take it all in literally with my four year old sitting on my shoulders playing dinosaurs on my head.
Thank you for your patience with me!
