    All,

    Couple of questions...

    1) Anyway I can activate plugins automatically when a new blog is created?

    2) Anyway I can assign a random theme to the new blog (obviously from the ones on the folder)

    Any help would be appreciated...thanks

    To edit your template settings, update your wp_x_posts table and set the relevant (random) value for 'template' and 'stylesheet'.
    Example:
    update wp_1_posts set option_value = 'home' where option_name = 'template';
    update wp_1_posts set option_value = 'home' where option_name = 'stylesheet';
    Haven't tested this myself, but it's a start.

    Yes, you can do both very elegantly with xmlrpc. Check the xmlrpc interface of wordpress (it is setoptions or so, don't remember) and write some lines of code.
