I have a wordpress theme that works "OK" as a single user and I have attempted to get it to work as a multi-user unsuccessfully.

There are features missing in multiuser side that are necessary to get it working the way I need it to work, like "theme options".

Here is a snap-shot of theme options http://screencast.com/t/5sx0umfYQs6

I'm thinking it must be a database issue as well as other things... I have no idea where to begin.

Can you be a little more specific as to what you're actually looking for? What features are missing? What is the way you need it to work? – SickHippie Mar 14 '12 at 22:30

I don't think the theme options is available to non Super Admins with WordPress Multisite. Take a look at this:


There's a fix described in that posting as well.

Summary: Use the edit_themes_options capability, not edit_themes for options pages.
