[resolved] Linking customized header / personalized login / widgets / transfer blog!!..?? (8 posts)

    I have a theme on my sites where the header is customized. I changed it to my own logo and I now wonder if I could put some coding in, or something else, to make sure the header on every site and page are linked to the "main" site..?

    If I set ut a new user fora site what are they able to do, is it possible to only let them write blogposts?

    Is there a widget showing the recent posts on the "main" site from all sites in the network..? (We have various blogs and I would like all new posts to show up instead of only recent posts for that specific site.)

    Is there an easy way to have a statcounter on every blog (various counters in one network, but on different sites.)..?

    Is there a picture-widget..? (Where you could show a picture of the blogger to the right next to the posts..?)

    Can I transfer my blog (only the posts) from one wordpress to my new multisite blog - how?

  2. I could put some coding in, or something else, to make sure the header on every site and page are linked to the "main" site..?

    Yes, but you'd have to edit the theme directly (i.e. not use the per-site manager). Make a child theme and set it in that.

    If I set ut a new user fora site what are they able to do

    Everything except upload new themes and plugins. They're ADMINS of their sites.

    is it possible to only let them write blogposts?

    ... Yes. Don't make them admins, add them as Editors or some lesser role.

    Is there a widget showing the recent posts on the "main" site from all sites in the network..?

    There are plugins for that.

    Is there an easy way to have a statcounter on every blog (various counters in one network, but on different sites.)..?

    There are plugins for that. Or edit the site theme and put the counter there.

    Is there a picture-widget..? (Where you could show a picture of the blogger to the right next to the posts..?

    Not that I know of, but possibly.

    Can I transfer my blog (only the posts) from one wordpress to my new multisite blog - how?

    Yes. Export from your old site, import to the new one.

    What do you meen by child theme? (would i make a change in ftp or in the themes editor at the network admin dashboard?)

    Regarding the exporting my old site, i saw i could that but i had to choose between only posts or posts, comments, tags and pages? Do I risk that the theme or design from my old blog follow if i choose the "all"-exportation?

    There´s actually a section only for the header in the theme editor...

    And if you export, you ONLY get your data, none of your theme tweaks.

    If you're new to WP, this is jumping into the deep end.

    Is the exportation deep end..??? or the child themes?

    Can´t find a good statcounter plugin for multisite, do you know about anyone?
    Regarding the statistics, isn´t there any counter already in wordpress..? I can´t find anything there...

  7. No, Multisite is the deep end.

    Statcounters all depend on what you want to count. I can't read your mind.

    For Stats, I just use Jetpack, which has WP Stats in it.

    You´re right, hard to read my mind, but jetpacked worked just fine for me as well.

    Think I got my questions answered on this topic.

    Thanks.
