    Hello, I have just started using wordpress and wordpressmu. The client I have use the theme named andreas09. Its very basic theme, but thats what they wanted. I don't really want to change it all that much but, thats really not the issue. I want to somehow get the information that is displayed on the default theme for wordpressMU. The things like signup for a blog, and creating a user account. I guess, I am missing something somewhere I'm sure that I just have to call up some PHP but I'm really lost. Is there a tutorial somewhere or something to help me port a regular wordpress into a wordpressMU theme?

    I really appreciate any help that anyone can give. Thanks in advance.

    Not really. It's mostly digging into other themes and plugins and figuring out how they do things.

    Yeah I have found that out...I did manage to stumble upon this..in case anyone else want a little info on it. He has an article on converting basically any CSS page into a WPMU home page.. He also has a few other hacks there also...

    Thanks for responding.

    Not all Wordpress themes are WPMU compatible. Many feature problems when you try to use them with MU. I have had problems with some themes, with it's widgets, etc, even with many premium themes.

    I developed two free themes that are fully compatible with WPMU, since I'm a wpmu user and admin. They are listed in the wordpress theme directory if anyone is interested. Themes are called "Patagonia" and "Tandil". You can take a look and contact me if you need help with anything.
