    ERROR: The themes directory is either empty or doesn’t exist. Please check your installation.

    My multisite setup seems to be working fine, but I get the above error message on all my admin dashboards.

    Should I be concerned? Way to fix?

    The sites are all using a custom child theme I developed, if that matters.

    Thanks James. It ended up that my style sheet was the problem. It looked fine but wordpress would not properly recognize it. Even though it was activated and running fine, the Network Admin listed it as broken. I opened the file up Notepad, re-saved it and all is well. Some hidden characters in there? Who knows?

    Cool Beans, Preserved!

    Well, I'm going to take credit for getting your noodle a thinking ;)

    Seriously, glad you got it all straightened out.

    Cheers :)
