New Blog Templates – Membership plugin not working as a premium plugin

Hi, I have setup my wordpress multisite website where users, can create their own membership websites.

I am using the wpmu membership plugin. I have setup pro-sites and have membership as a premium plugins.

I have setup the New Blog Templates plugin, and have created a template website.

When I create a new website using the template. The membership plugin is enabled, but the membership menu does not show up.

If i do NOT use the blog template and just create the site, the membership plugin works fine.

1. Can you please suggest what may be the problem?

2. Is it possible to make the blog template selection compulsory?

Thanks, Best Regards,
