[resolved] Broadcast MU vs. Multipost MU (39 posts)

  1. the more I wonder if folks are just using it to pump out spammy blogs.

    I worry about that too. :) Glad to hear it's not the case.

    I can also assure that I am not using this plugin for spam blog.

    I am developing Hotels group website, in which most of the brand pages are same for all, that's why I need that functionality.

    If I can get that featured image broadcast then it will help me to broadcast all my posts with its images too.

    Thanks,
    Arpita

    To be honest, I wouldn't worry about Spammy blogs, they are going to happen one way or another, there was another plugin a while back before these 3 came about which shut down because they worried about the spam potential, like it made any difference to the spammers ability to spam.

    I'm using the Multipost MU plugin on a Wp3.0 site. It works fine, except that I have to update twice each post in order for the custom fields to be added to the other blogs. If I click just once, it won't save the custom fields' changes on the other blogs, I have to update again.

    I'm using the plugin to produce an editable mobile version of the site.

    Great work, though!

    Thank you for any help,
    Camilo

    I'd actually recommend trying out the ThreeWP broadcast. It seems to have really picked up the ball where my plugin has fallen by the wayside.

    Thanks for the tip. However, I tried the ThreeWP broadcast plugin but had a bad experience (blank page after post update)...

    Anyone has more ideas?

    Thanks!

    Definitely not for spammy blogs - I'm using it to share common information on different themed sites for same community: kinsale.ie, golf.kinsale.ie, weddings.kinsale.ie, meetings.kinsale.ie -- they all need the same info re where to stay, where to eat and things to do. Your plugin has been a big help in that! Just for some reason it's not allowing me to share with the meetings site, but that's another thread...

    Hi!

    Being very new to plugins, I made a small hack and would like to know if this is going to bring problems or if it's fine.

    Around line 100 I added:

    do_action('save_post', $postID, $post);

    and now it's working, the custom fields are updated before the plugin retrieves their values from database.

    Please let me know if this is reasonable and if this may cause troubles with revisions or other stuff.

    Thanks!

    Please ignore the post in the other thread, here is more appropriate I think.

    I am interested in where this is going as well. My Foundation runs several sites that would love to be able to post news to each site where it applicable to all the sites.

    For this reason, I am interested in seeing if these plugins meet our needs.
