Wrdpress 3.0 RC3 MU - Globaly Inactive Themes (12 posts)

    In the list Super Admin > Sites > Edit Site > Site Themes, are themes that are not globally activated but are installed.
    If I activate an globally inactive theme it will show as active in Site Themes but won't be used on the site.

  2. I'm not sure if you've got a question in there.

    It's not a question, I'm just pointing out an issue. Is it happening to you too? If yes, what should I do to let the development team know about this issue and resolve it for the final release?

  4. If I activate an globally inactive theme it will show as active in Site Themes but won't be used on the site.

    Unless I'm misunderstanding (only one cup of coffee so far), that's the expected behavior. Nothing to resolve.

    When you activate a theme globally, it doesn't get applied anywhere. It just becomes available (visible) to be used by your sites in your WordPress Network.

  5. jdembowski has it correct. Super Admin -> Themes just *enables* themes for use on other sites.

    You can enable themes on a site by site basis so they aren't available to other blogs.

    aha, ok. I got it. :)
    That's a facility for the Super Admin that allows him to make themes available on site by site basis not to all the sites...

    Would it be possible and useful to do that for the plugins too?

  7. There was a plugin to do that for plugins, but it needs to be updated.

    Network activate may work on some cases, or the mu-plugins folder. It depends.

    Wherever the plugin that Andrea is talking about is, will someone for the love of Disney please update it? I need it bad!

  9. It was the plugin manager or the plugin commander, that;s the one I was thinking of. Didn't hide the plugins specifically tho.

    Well poo. Someone REALLY needs to write a "hide plugin from user sites" plugin.

  11. Just one plugin or all of them? Because you can hide the entire plugins menu already.

    And some plugins written specifically for network activation will not show for users, like Buddypress. (I remember we talked about that one before. ;) )

    Not all, just select ones. Like, it would be PERFECT if there was a bulk edit option on the plugins page for super admin for "hide from user sites" or something.

    Yeah, I remember talking about Buddypress being hidden. My issue is with the slew of Buddypress plugin plugins (if that makes sense) and such (Cubepoints, Adminimize, Members) being visible to my users on their own plugins pages. I need them to be able to activate and deactivate the plugins they'd like from those that I've installed specifically for use on their sites, but there are lots that I use to give my main site it's community features that have absolutely no use to the user sites, and I think it's a bit overwhelming for them to see so much in the list.
