[resolved] Different blog posts on same page (11 posts)

    Hi,
    is it possible, in network of blogs, to have something like frontend superpage or superarchive (or masterpage/masterarchive) where I can display posts from all or selected network blogs?

    Or (and) to display posts from many different blogs and different users on same page/archive ?

    I'm not sure if I explained well ...

    Thanks

  2. Yes.

    This is mentioned in the sticky as well.

    Use this plugin:

    Thanks.
    I checked plugin's site, and, did I get this right - it makes COPIES of posts into this new (super)blog ?
    So, like, if there are 10 blogs, and each blog 10 posts, this plugin would make 100 new post tables in database on install (copies of other blogs posts)?

    Hmm, while waiting I'm going to test it ...

  4. Yes, it will. Those posts will have the same permalink as the original blog, so there is no duplicate content.

    Oh ... that's really not what I had in mind.

    What I need is like multisite queries, not to actually copy the posts. To display, let's say, last 20 posts from every blog ...

    What about one taxonomy system for whole multisite ? Is that possible ?

    Am I asking too much from WP ? ;)

  6. No, but you really don't want to do that. Remember the following:

    1) Multisite is running separate sites - like WordPress.com
    2) The more queries you do between sites (ANY sites, WP or not) the more work your server does

  7. Or mess around with these:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/diamond-multisite-widgets/

    really - there is no multisite queries to pull posts like that. Why? Cuz it won't scale.

    Copying the posts all into one table is a GREAT way to handle it. How come you don't like that idea? ;)

    Well, to be honest, I don't know why I don't like that idea ... :)

    Probably because it's not the way I immagined the solution for my goal ... Ok, I will try sidewide tags ...

    Oh, one more thing ... I did fresh WP network install with latest version, and I noticed there is no Global Terms option in SuperAdmin > Options ?? Any ideas? I made fresh install 2 times, and always the same..

    Btw, thanks for all your help !

  9. IIRC that went away in 3.0 but I could be wrong.

  10. It's not there anymore. It was misleading as to what it did and it didn't really work right anyway.
