    Hello,

    Sorry if this has been tackled before, but I can't seem to find an answer.

    Hypothetical Scenario: Say I have 4 WP sites. FishingGear.com, FishingGetaways.com, FishingTrade.com and FishingReviews.com.

    Each as it's own stand-alone blog. Is it possible to have a single blog, say FishingLife.com that would automatically re-post any posts from the other four blogs, as sort of a catch-all if you will?

    If possible, how would one set that up?

    Thanks for any help!

    Tom

    Yes, this is possible, but may need a bit programming..

    One idea is here.. you can use post by mail. See this section:
    Settings-->writting
    Check Post via e-mail.

    Now, you can set an email address post@yourdomain.com, for all four blogs..

    You could create a page for each site in the main site. On each page pull the RSS to show a list of recent articles. With short bits of the article and title linking to the actual site.

    You could go further with a page for each category of the other sites and display the RSS for that category.

    PHP Exec plugin will let you put the PHP code for displaying RSS into each page.

    I have seen plugins (one i used is outdated, I had to recode it) that will pull RSS and create new posts but I can't find those types of plugins hosted in WordPress. You could get your sites fighting each other in Google I bet or have duplicate content issue and get bad rank.
