Can I create a customAction to hide the Theme link in Site Settings in SharePoint 2010 ? If so, what does the Element.xml look like ? I've tried the following:

<Elements xmlns="">
  GroupId = "Customization"
  HideActionId = "Theme"
  Id = "HideTheme"
  Location = "Microsoft.SharePoint.SiteSettings">

Correction: The above Element.xml is correct. I thought I had the feature automatically activate on deployment which was not the case. Once I activated the feature, the 'Theme' link disapeared from Site Settings.
