    Hi, I just installed wordpress. Maybe this is in there but I cant login because of our stupid hoster and norton phishing but we are working on that. Anyways I am wondering if there is an easy way to have multiple blogs and have a splash page that will tell recent posts from all of them also. Also are there any kind of addons that allow wordpress and phpbb to work together.

    Hi ninjon,

    For the splash page with recent posts of all your blogs, I would just bring in the rss feeds and use php to parse through them and display the title, blurb, and a link to the full post.
    If you have php5, this is pretty simple to do.

    As far as wp and phpbb, there is this that I've heard about recently: http://www.wp-united.com

    How do I do multiple blogs. I would prefer to not have to install more than one wordpress.

    I'm with you. The only way I know to do multiple blogs would be to use wordpress mu (http://mu.wordpress.org). I've never tried it though.

    Ideally, you should be able to set up one directory of the core wordpress files and have another folder with only the necessary files for each blog you want to run. But, wordpress (the original version you download from wordpress.org) doesn't let you do that. So, to do multiple blogs, you just have to install them into a different folder and maintain all the updates etc. (the same process as installing one blog, but do that for however many you want).

    It's kind of a pain, trust me, I know.
