Copy Post From Main Blogsite (1 post)

    I want to be able to select a post from the posts in a specific category on my main blog/site and copy that post to the current blog/site.

    I have been able to switch to the main blog, pull a list of the posts in the category, and show them in a dropdown or select box, using the code example from the get_posts function in the codex.

    However, with the action set to 'GET,' the submit post loads the page rather than copying the post meta and content.

    What can I do with the following code to load that data from setup_postdata() array and use it to update an existing post on the current blog/site?

    <?php
      // THIS WORKS.  Reactivate switch to blog and restore current blog when
      // action is figured out that will copy post from main blog to current blog.
      // switch_to_blog(1)
    ?>
    <form action="<? bloginfo('url'); ?>" method="get">
     <select name="page_id" id="page_id">
    <?php
     global $post;
     $args = array( 'numberposts' => -1, 'category' => 9);
     $posts = get_posts($args);
     foreach( $posts as $post ) : setup_postdata($post); ?>
                    <option value="<? echo $post->ID; ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></option>
    <?php endforeach; ?>
     </select>
     <input type="submit" name="submit" value="select" />
     </form>
    <?php
      // THIS WORKS.  Reactivate switch to blog and restore current blog when
      // action is figured out that will copy post from main blog to current blog.
      // restore_current_blog();
    ?>
