recently I found a problem is that all custom theme settings written by theme author are not working for a multisite enabled site. I've checked several themes and thought this workaround may help:

add_theme_page('lindsay-koinaka', 'lindsay-koinaka', 'edit_themes', 'lindsay-koinaka', 'lindsay_koinaka_admin_page_init');

Then I changed it to:

add_theme_page('lindsay-koinaka', 'lindsay-koinaka', 'switch_themes', 'lindsay-koinaka', 'lindsay_koinaka_admin_page_init');

But hen I try to change settings I got the following message:

You do not have sufficient permissions to modify unregistered settings for this site.

So how to make theme settings support multisite enabled site? anybody has good ideas?
