This post may sound stupid, but let me try. When a person adds a blog, to "mysite.com", then they chose the activated social theme. and the user activates it. and under theme options they seem to have all the same admin controls as the site admin has, or so it seems.
also if a any person goes directly to that persons blog "mysite.com/blog1" while not logged in they get a new buddypress social theme header page, etc. (i would rather the main site header image comes up with the members blogs info below (as it is part of the "mysite" community, or skip it all together. As many users (due to lack of computer knowledge), may just want a simple page)
I would like, as admin to provide the default social theme matching the original site to have the same look as main community page "universal" thought out the site. For Example, a new user would get a simplified social theme "blog page", with minimal controls:
maybe some widget space on right side and the standard tabs, youtube,flicker.. (ie., P2 theme but prettier and on steriods)
I'd like to be able to make the page more of a default page kinda like using the theme "P2 by automatic" for people who know very little about changing colors,widgets. This way site admin can add embed (hard code) ads on all blog pages, and the user will have some space also if they have knowledge.
I love the social theme logged in look, but i'm having a issue with activating it on a member's blog, and that member's blog showing on front page "latest post" as the theme options "2-3 column" seems to override the "settings (reading) - static page to show latest posts).
maybe i just can't find it, but is there a way of modifying a members controls over the social theme or is there a theme one can use that looks similar in layout without having to use a theme such as P2 for the average Joe/Sally out there for default.
sorry for being long winded, i hope its understandable. (the p2 wordpress theme allows for quick post, and adding longer posts, but i'd rather use your great social theme layout as default to match overall site)
