Set default theme on install (3 posts)

    I have a default theme for all my wordpress sites of Main, when I go to create a new site I want this theme to be automatically selected instead of TwentyTwelve,

    I tried googling this and I tried define('WP_DEFAULT_THEME', 'main'); but neither worked. Im using WordPress 3.5 and this default should be set when i run the installer when installing on an empty DB.

    Any help people could offer would be appreciated

    Is this on a multisite install?

    Are you running these sites inside of a Buddypress or MultiUser WordPress install or are you simply installing new wordpress installs on your server under different domains or urls? If your doing a new Wp install for each site then you will just need to upload your theme files each time, if you are running a MU install and creating sites within it, are you using domain mapping or are you using the blogs folder for your new sites? I mean to say, did you set a domain wild card for new sites or does your new sites go into the blogs folder? Let me know and Im sure we can help. I know I did have that function in a file somewhere around here. Let me know what your doing and how your doing it and we'll see what we can do.
