comment Preset Widgets ONLY after site is initially created
Figured out how to determine if a site has just been created by checking if there is a post with id=1 whose post_date is within minutes of the current time.

comment wp_insert_post breaks rewrite rules
My latest guess is that WordPress is not regenerating rewrite rules after the wp_insert_post function is executed

comment wp_insert_post breaks rewrite rules
Am not doing any manual rewriting of rules nor do I want this code to be dependent on a particular permalink structure, needs to work for any permalink settings. This does NOT happen when publishing pages manually via the Add Page admin UI...

comment Preset Widgets ONLY after site is initially created
@chip-bennett, My previous comment seems to have been truncated... Ideally theme developers should be able to specify their own preset (i.e. default) widgets and these should be included in the same way as user-selected widgets and ONLY included when a site is initially created or when existing widgets don't map to a theme's registered sidebars. That said, I did use the_widget in my sidebar template files for now, see: (bit.ly/jlcT36)
