Multiple Blog installations - All posts on one page and seperate blogs (3 posts)

    Hi,
    I have multiple blogs and I want to join them together some how. I want one main blog that shows all the posts and comments while the other blogs still hold their own identity.

    For example:
    I have my main blog at http://www.mainblog.com and I want it to show all the blog posts on though that from my other blogs at http://www.blog1.myblog.com, http://www.blog2.myblog.com.

    How do I do this?

    Might want to use Feeds for that or even just an RSS widget if you want to show the posts in a sidebar on those other blogs.

    I have found my solution. I downloaded this plugin that allows each category to have a different theme.

    Then on the templates on the sub blogs, change the category code to this

    <ul>
    <?php wp_list_categories('orderby=id&show_count=1
    &use_desc_for_title=0&child_of=8'); ?>
    </ul>

    Have the sub blogs in categories and it appears that the blogs a separate. Then use permlinks for the categories so your URL looks like http://www.mainblog.com/blog1 http://www.mainblog/blog2 etc, then have the subdomains point to those locations.

    Theres probably a better way, but this way works.

    The only thing is that I yet do not know how to remove the category work when I change the template to that code above.
