    Posted 17 years ago # You may also want to review the Theme page over there. Only difference between regular WP and WPMU when it comes to setting up themes is that the Site Admin has a page to turn themes on and off.

    If you've never run WordPress before, I strongly suggest you give it a try before you do anything else.

    This is Open Source Software. The users pretty much write the Documentation.

    That happened to me too. Only some of the themes work. Here is a list of the ones that installed without trouble:

    • Jakarta
    • Sweet Blossoms - needs %28tp%29 added to the end of the theme name in link to divider image:
      <img src="<?php echo get_settings('home'); ?>/wp-content/themes/sweet-blossoms%28tp%29/images/divider.gif" alt="" />
    • Orange Sky
    • Nikynik Blue
    • Kickass Spooky Blue
    • Delusions
    • Connections
    • Coffee Cup
    • Chocolate Candy
    • China Red

    Nuam, link. I found it doing a search. (That's a hint by the way)

    BM, friendly reminder that you're running WPMU, not wordpress. They are not the same thing.
