    #18301 – Multisite Theme Activation 


    Goal of this ticket is to make it faster and easier to activate themes in multisite installs. See my comment on the ticket. Looking at a) possible label change, b) adding a highlight state to the themes list table, and/or c) any UI suggestion that would make this process easier. Let’s hash out early ideas and/or mockups here, and when we’ve got something solid, move over to trac.

      Might want to consider making the themes enabled by default instead. Right now, the process is backwards to how plugins are installed. If you install a plugin, it’s available right away.

      And yes, we have seen the language issue come up with the word “enable” vs “activate”.

        I think the difference between themes and plugins is that lots of multisite installs have custom themes per site or sets of sites, vs plugins that provide functionality but don’t affect the branding.

        On the other hand, Plugins are ‘weird’ because you cannot (easily, without another plugin) activate a plugin on JUST one site. The two work in totally separate worlds already.

    Ticket #15942 – Username vs. Email for Identifying Users

    Reported Problem: “When I create a new blog in a network, I am asked to enter the Admin Email. This is rather useless to me because all our accounts come from an LDAP directory. So I have to remember the site admin’s email address, which is not always consistent across my organization. It would be nicer if I had an autocomplete-style field where I could enter the user’s ID.”

    The issues of selecting existing users vs. adding new users and doing so by email address vs. username touches more admin interactions than just this one. We’ll need to address it as a whole rather than just focusing on this one person’s complaint, but using this ticket as a starting point for discussion.
