new loop from remote database (5 posts)

    I have multiple blogs that I am running, and I would like one of my installs of WP to reference the other's posts.

    Meaning:
    Blog A exists.
    Blog B has a page that pulls its loop from Blog A.

    Possible?

    Thanks!

    Is this question in the wrong forum?

    Can't Blog A grab and parse Blog B's RSS feed(s) for this?

    I am not familiar with rss markup. I would like the full utility of the loop, not just an ability to re-style with css.

    If Blog B's MySQL server will allow connections from Blog A's server then you should be able to grab anything you want, so its possible. You might be better off having Blog A query a script on Blog B ( using curl, for example, within PHP or using Ajax after the page loads ). That way you don't have to rewrite WP's complicated post queries.
