#14120 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

site-specific theme selection won't save in upgraded MU installs

This only affects upgraded from wordpressmu installs, and not new or single WordPress upgraded installs.

Make sure you have some themes disabled under Super Admin -> Themes.

Now go to Super Admin -> Sites and edit a site. On the right is a meta box called Site Themes. This will show a list of network-wide disabled themes, with checkboxes so you can enabled a theme for specific sites.

Tick the checkbox(es) and save. On refresh they are unchecked again and will not appear on the site's Appearance menu.

Once any site had an allowedthemes option, the allowed themes could not be updated. There may be other options in the edit site screen that the same thing happens to.

I had to hack allowedthemes to be empty to reproduce this. I guess MU was setting it to some non-array type.
