    Hello,

    Stupid question.. but is it possible to custom configure a theme (using wp interfaces), and save that configuration to be used when users create a new site?

    Including pages, widgets, etc?

    I don't think so. Pages are stored on a per site basis - not per-theme - for a start.

    well for instance, every blog comes with a Home and an About page. Could that be modified somewhere?

    So not on a theme level, but as a default?

    Not without either hacking the core or building a plugin to insert pages.

    Thanks esmi.

    The best thing i could find would be to use a site replicator found on wpebooks.

    Basically make all mirror x site.

    Then perhaps to create 10 templates/layouts. If people want me to make them one based on demo1,2,3; then I just create the account.

    This way non technical people can have a nice site, and the setup is considerably less.

    Now since you are a theme diva... I am looking at a fairly easy to use framework for making custom templates without having to do css modifications (en masse anyway).

    Is genesis a solid framework? Or what would the Theme Diva suggest? :)

    Not played with Genesis. Thematic seems pretty good but I ended up rewriting so many of its functions that I gave up. But don't let that put you off - I'm just incredibly fussy about my markup. :-)
