                                                                            WPMU DEV theme really is the only complete solution you need to theme your site.

                                                                            3. Upload the folder to /wp-content/themes/ folder on your site

                                                                            Enabling themes on a per site basis

                                                                            Any theme that has not been activated for the entire network can be activated on a site as follows:

                                                                            1. Locate the site you want to enable specific themes on by searching for the specific site by clicking on Sites > All Sites

                                                                            2. Once you have located the site click on Edit (hovering your mouse over the domain name brings up the action menu)

                                                                            3. Click the Themes tab

                                                                            Only themes that haven’t been enabled network wide appear on the site theme list

                                                                            You can also enable more than one theme at the same time:

                                                                            Using Supporter Plugin for Premium Themes

                                                                            The supporter plugin allows you to select premium themes for supporter sites only.

                                                                            The idea is you make the best and nicest themes available on supporter sites so users will want to sign up to access the themes.

                                                                            To install:

                                                                            1.  Install the Supporter plugin as per the installation instructions.

                                                                            2.  Upload supporter-themes.php to wp-content/mu-plugins

                                                                            How it works is:

                                                                            1.  A Premium Themes page is added to Settings > Supporter in the Network Admin dashboard, where you can select the themes that you want to enable for Supporter sites only.

                                                                            • Only themes that haven’t been enabled network wide on Network Admin >Themes will be listed on this page

                                                                            2.  A Premium Themes sub-menu item is added to the dashboard of all sites under both Supporter and Appearance – but only users using supporter site can activate a Premium theme.

                                                                            3.  Whereas users on non-supporter sites can see all the Premium themes but can’t activate them – instead they see a message saying ‘This feature is limited to supporters only’
