    You need to activate the themes in Site Admin->Themes.

    All plugins in the plugins folder become active. I don't know about widgets.

    Plugins placed in wp-content/mu-plugins are activated automatically.
    Plugins placed in the plugins folder (right there next to the themes ones) show up in the user's Plugins page. You may also have to enable the use of plugins from the Site Admin menu.

    You can put widgets in the plugins folder or in the mu-plugins folder (if in the mu one, a slight adjustment needs to be made).

    Alos, if you have widgets, make sure you have widget-enabled themes. :)
