Ipstenu, as always I really appreciate the time and effort you give me here.. thanx a lot.
The issue is that as I said earlier, those are authors who not only dont know how to operate a website, but dont even want to!! that is why my next step is configuring WP to publush their posts that it recieves from specific email addresses just to save them the hassle involved in logging in and posting.. sending an email message for a no web savvy is much easier.. (it would be a nightmare if I couldnt do this lol).
So thats all behind it.
Anyway I think I am making some progress. The issue I had with the plugin Multisite Plugin Manager is that it did not show the plugins installed, and I could not control them. Turned out I have to network de-activate the plugins from native plugin management then enable them via the plugin (which is never mentioned anywhere at all!!).. so now I am enabling the plugins one by one, and those plugins that I dont want the users to access, I have not enabled at all.
Still some more issues in the horizon. For instance I want to enable Intense Debate for all blogs.. it requires an account, do I have to go and put my own ID's account info in every single blog? it seems Yes, sadly..
i will keep you updated.. PLEASE keep watching this topic. you are helping me alot :)
I wish you'd enjoy your days and nights .. :)
