    HI

    I hope this is the proper place to post this question. And I hope it hasn't been covered elsewhere. I tried many variations of a search and did not find this particular question. Maybe its so obvious to skilled users it isn't necessary. In that case I apologize.

    As a CMS I am finding WP3.0+ to be very good but of course it is still maturing in this role. For my usage its Achilles heel is the sharing of content amongst a related group of blogs/sub-domains. NextGen Galleries works pretty well for pics.

    I would like a post from one blog to be displayed in the post of a different blog. This is simaler to the way external pics are grabbed and displayed. Even that though creates a new page permalink which looks like duplicate content. I would like to reuse the originating post link within the second blogs structure. Primarily I want to avoid upsetting Google analytics search for original content, not repeated content duplicated between blogs.

    Of course I can copy/past or export/import or create external link which jumps out of the current blog back to the originating blogs site and post.

    Thanks and my apologies if this turns out to be a completely simple and lame query.

    This pulls all the posts and aggregates them to one blog, retaining the original link.

    Is that what you're looking for? It's not clear if you wanted just two blogs to share content, or groups in one.

    NO not really I just need it post to post here or there.
    Eg: one blog has posts on health issues. One of the posts also relates to Senior's health. That could be reposted on the second site. Or perhaps posts with a certain tag could be called to the second site. But they need to pick up the css and show up in the content body of the second site.

    Thanks for the reply though I had come across the sitewide tags you mentioned.

    I suppose that could be considered a "Many to one aggregation."

    I am looking for a "one to one"

    Thanks.

  4. Hmmm...

    The ones I know of, where you can pick & choose to cross-post, actually copy over the content. And it gets a new permalink.

    If they're using the same database can they call it from there?

  6. No, it doesn't work like that.

    Think of it this way 'You're running WordPress.com on your own server.' Each site is individual and separate. Sounds more like you want categories.

    I thought of having all content in one blog but each section needs its own look and face so different themes or shades of a theme for each section/category/blog (however it is thought of) is necessary.

    So how would it be possible to keep a sections identity/theme but displaying the same post content in more than one section and not create duplicate content thus satisfying Google analytics.

  8. and not create duplicate content thus satisfying Google analytics.

    If you're using a subfolder install, G will see the same posts as duplicate content.

    If you're using subDOMAINS, G won't, really.

    Which can be done, actually, through clever templating :) You can have a separate look per category, and even an 'If this post is in THAT category, use THIS style' per post.

    Ok This sounds very cool. Of course the entire purpose is to satisfy google analytics. I suppose its possible for domain redirects to send people to a particular category. IE: main blog is A with sub-categories of B, C, and D. I someone one searches for B.com they could be redirected to a.com/category-B. Would this work for search engines?

    Would short codes need to be generated which included category names?

    Any other thoughts???

    What other kinds of kinks might be caused by using categories for sections as opposed to separate blogs?
