    I am getting used to Multisite...I have the following questions:

    How do I make a theme only available on site A, and not on site B?

    Same question but for plugins.

    Please note that my setup is as following:

    whateversite.com/sitea
    whateversite.com/siteb

    The "main" site (whateversite.com), I have to go there to super network admin things, if I understand things correctly, correct?

    each site will have their own admin.

    Let's say Akismet comes up for an update. as super admin, do I have to go to sitea and siteb to update or can I go in one location and update to the main site AND all subdirectories (sitea, siteb).

    Also, Do I have to get a separate key for each site for Akismet?

    Will sitea admin be able to update his plugins/theme, then siteb admin for siteb or do I have to do it as super admin, if yes, how do I change things so only super admin can update?

  2. Only super admins can update. A plugin like Akismet cannot be network activated unless you have the premium subscription. Each site can activate independently. For activating plugins or themes on individual sites, make sure they are not network activated then you can edit the site settings individually.

  3. You can run a multisite install with a single Aksimet key, by defining the constant WPCOM_API_KEY (as mentioned near the top of the akismet.php file).

    You don't HAVE to pay the extra, though it's nice if you do :) We suggest you do "For personal, non-commercial sites and blogs" pay $0 to $120 a year. But it's the honor system.
