i finally managed to run WPMU on my localhost on my mac. woot. wpmu looks really cool, thanks for your recomendation. although i'm still one glimpse away from the thing i want: i downloaded this plugin: works actually great, if i set up a new "sub-blog" to get all global posts. the thing i want to achieve is, that i have one MAIN-BLOG that gets all posts from all subblogs. if install this plugin, i'm able to create this new blog that kind of collects all posts, but i want my MAIN-ADMIN-BLOG to collect all the posts. so there is an option in this plugin:
Post to main blog
Create posts in your main blog. All posts will appear on the front page of your site. Remember to to add a post loop to home.php in the theme directory if it exists.
if i tick the box in front of it and update the settings nothing happens to my MAIN-BLOG. of course, because it's written that "Remember to to add a post loop to home.php in the theme directory if it exists."...
sooo...if i look in my themes folder under my current theme i can find a _home.php file (with underscore in front of it)...
and that's the code inside of it:
<?php get_header(); ?>
<div id="homebody"> <span style="text-transform: uppercase;">
<?php bloginfo('description'); ?>
<!-- To use this optional home page, rename this file to home.php. You'll need to edit the following by hand. Replace [category name] with the name of a category you want to display on the home page. You can copy the block $my_query block as many times as you like. -->
<?php $my_query = new WP_Query('category_name=[category name]&showposts=1');
while ($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post();
$do_not_duplicate = $post->ID; ?>
<?php the_category(' ') ?>
</span> <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark">
<?php the_title(); ?>
<?php endwhile; ?>
<a href="about" title="About">ABOUT</a> FACE. DIVE INTO THE <a href="archives" title="Archives">ARCHIVES</a>. DON’T MISS A TRICK: <a href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>" class="subscribe">SUBSCRIBE.</a> </div>
<!-- end homebody -->
<?php get_footer(); ?>
may anybody please be so kind and tell me what to change in this code, to set all my posts to the MAIN-BLOG???
thank you very much
