I’ve seen a lot of discussion on how site admins can set defaults for new blogs created in a WordPress Mu environment. Most of the solutions involve figuring out which option you want to change and manually updating the schema.php (ie – hacking the core) or using a plugin file where you manually type in the update_option() command for the option you want to set. I decided to create a plugin that would provide an administrative interface to most of the blog settings, so that site admins wouldn’t have to mess with files. No code knowledge needed.
Anyway, I uploaded the files over at WPMU Dev. Take a crack at them and let me know what you think.
