[SOLVED] No Atahualpa theme option in WP3.0 multi-site

I've set up wp3.0 multi-site and installed Atahualpa 3.5.1 as a network theme.

Administrators of subsites can activate the theme, so the theme seems to be installed correctly.

The problem: Only super-admins are able to see Atahualpa Theme Options in the Appearance menu. Regular administrators see only Themes, Widgets, and Menus.

Since super-admins have access to all the sub-sites, clearly we can't promote everyone to super-admin. But it seems logical that a sub-site administrator should be able to access his own theme options, right?

Did I miss a setting, is this a purposeful omission, or is Atahualpa not available for multi-site? Thanks for your help.

I've found a solution to this problem. (Found it and explained more here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/413440?replies=4)

In /atahualpa351/functions/bfa_ata_add_admin.php find this call:

add_theme_page($themename. " Options", "Atahualpa Theme Options", 'edit_themes', basename(__FILE__), 'bfa_ata_admin');

Change edit_themes to switch_themes, and your sub-site admins will be able to access the options page. What the change does is change the capability that a user must have to be able to see the page. I figure, if a user is able to select the theme for the site, she should probably be allowed to set the options too, so switch_theme is an appropriate capability.

I hope this is helpful to someone. Cheers!
