    Hi,

    Could anyone help me with this? What is the difference between WPMU themes and wordpress themes. If I want users to make some changes to the themese select (like just upload a header gif), how can I achieve that.

    Also is there a WPMU version of the comicpress theme?

    Please help.

    There isn't a difference. they take the *same themes*.

    Something like adding a custom header is an option. You can even add it to any theme and it will work for WP/WPMU.

    People talk about making themes "work" in MU because there are a few things to look out for:
    - hardcoded areas
    - maybe you want a widgetized sidebar
    - any plugin that may be needed for soem theme features
    - if it has an options page, it may bork in MU but it's been a while since I've seen one do that

    So take the comicpress theme, plunk it in MU and see what happens.

    Thanks adrea :)

    The part of comicpress theme is that it publishes comics in a particular category. I have learnt how to create a new default category (comic) everytime someone gets a new blog.

    But I cannot get my head to understand how to add a custom header. Could you guide or give a reference where i can find this info ?

    You upload them to the themes directory. Go to Site Admin and activate them. Then they should be available under Design.
