I'm developing a theme for a client that will be using the MU version of WP on their corporate server as a way for it's associates to write about their experiences etc. I'm trying to make the theme as comprehensive as possible with as few plug-in's as possible.
Is it possible to integrate a plug-in into a theme so it is automatically active and doesn't have to be enabled and configured by each user (I'm trying to take the idiot factor out of the admin, so the settings aren't available to change by the individual associates).
If this is possible, can anyone point me to a resource on the subject? I've spent 2 hours searching before posting here with no real luck.
