[resolved] Bug: Theme Previews Don't work with Multisite (5 posts)

    I am having problems with viewing themes on a multisite setup, I have narrowed the problem down to defining the 'MULTISITE' constant in wp-config.php, the theme preview works fine up until the point this is activated. - Literally commenting out that line makes it work, but obviously deactivates multisite.

    Before you ask, I have disabled all plugins and this is on a fresh install on 3.1.1, this leads me to thing this is potentially a bug in the core?

    Try to set properly the Authentication Unique Keys and Salts in wp-config. You can generate these using the https://api.wordpress.org/secret-key/1.1/salt/ WordPress.org secret-key service.
    I had the same problem and this solution worked for me!

  3. Works for me too.

    Just tonight I upgraded my WordPress install to a multisite network and I have encountered this very same problem. If I define MULTISITE as false in wp-config, all of my themes appear, but as soon as it's set to true they are gone.

    Unfortunately, I took the advice in this thread and checked, double-checked and even recreated my authentication keys and salts, but to no avail. Does anyone else have a suggestion as to what could be causing this problem?

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Ugh. Didn't even realize that WP automatically set themes not in use to disabled across the network upon set up. Found the administration screen that allows you to enable them and all is good. Definitely a headdesk moment.
