Theme for only main site in Network install (3 posts)

    In WordPress MU, you can set a 'home' theme that can only be used by the main site but not network sites.

    example.com can use 'home' theme (or whatever)
    other.example.com can use the activated themes but not the 'home' theme.

    I can't see a way to install a theme that can only be used by the main site. The main 'superadmin' could be able to select any theme even disabled ones or is there another solution.

    On WordPress.com I don't think a user can select the theme that drives the homepage of wordpress.com for example, but I don't see how to do this with 3.0 beta2

    Ah, I think I solved it. The Superadmin > Sites seems to allow themes on a site by site basis. Is this correct?

  3. No, the Super Admin -> themes are is to enable them across the network. Disable the main site theme. Then go to Super Admin -> Sites, Edit the main site, and on the right is a selection of checkboxes with disabled themes. Check the one you want for the main site.
