Update: To clarify for future generations, this post is in regard to Salutation Theme versions up to 1.5. We’ll update again when/if this issue is resolved by the theme developers.
Update #2: As of Salutation 2.0 this theme is remarkably more compatible with custom post types and WPMU DEV plugins. We’re stoked to see the developers respond for the betterment of all customers. The article and instructions below are no longer relevant and we’re seeing folks have positive results with this theme. Thanks.
