Pages on Sitewide tags-blog display individual blogs (9 posts)

    Hi again! So now Sitewide posts/tags is working and I'm starting on the next step on completing our blog network.
    For the tags blog I'm using the Buddymatic theme and created Pages with the name of each individual blog.
    On the first page I'd like to display posts from all blogs, but when you click on a page I'd like to display only the selected blog under that page.
    I don't want to import posts, but only fetch the blog with the use of some code I guess.

    Is there a snippet of code I could use or do I need to create a frame? Or maybe the link to the page should be a link to the blog instead? However, I don't want to lose the top frame of the Buddymatic theme when clicking a link.

  2. Or maybe the link to the page should be a link to the blog instead?

    This is what you should do.

    Ok.. one more question!

    You know I've been using the Sitewide tags plugin to syndicate blogs.
    However, the posts that are carried over to the aggregating blog do not carry with them their comments and its not possible to post new comments to them either.
    Is there a way to enable and carry over comments with the Sitewide plugin?

  5. yeah, it doesn't pull the comments. :-/ What I did was remove the comments link on the tags blog theme. anyone who anted to comment had to click on through to the original blog & comment there.

    Ah :/ So I suppose getting it to pull comments too would require a lot of work with the plugin? Not something I could find out how to do by googling?

    And what do you think about using Disqus for the comments, would it perhaps transfer the comments? I'll try.

    @Andrea_r or should I say wizard of oz because you know it all...the more I read on this posts, I'm happy when I think I've found the correct trail and I see your little ICON in the thread...quick question for you...I'm using the Sitewide Tags and it seems to be working fine but I have the following questions:

    1. How do I keep the other blogs pages from coming through to the main blog? I just want the posts to come through. my website is http://www.theanswerboy.com if you'd like to see what I'm talking about.

    2. How or where would I put a network wide style to text wrap my pics? I'd like to add this code and have it reflect on all blogs:

    .floatimgleft {
    float:left;
    margin-top:10px;
    margin-right:10px;
    margin-bottom:10px;
    }
    
    .floatimgright {
    float:right;
    margin-top:10px;
    margin-left:10px;
    margin-bottom:10px;
    margin-right:10px;
    }

    3. When I imported all my old posts from other sites, the HTML for my amazon.com codes disappeared...any thoughts on that?

    4. How do I get the home page on the base blog to just have excerpts and maybe the picture, but mostly the excerpt is what I want most of all the other blogs.

    Can you please provide me some assistance...

    I'm also open to assistance from anyone else...I'm just asking for Andrea by name because she is clearly an expert!!!

    Thank you all in advance.

    I forgot to add...I'd like to add direct links to all my other sites on the home page in the pages navigation section with something like Redirectify...is there a better way? I'd also, if there were pie in the sky and everything was awesome, also like to have that navigation go across all the sites....any thoughts?

    Thank you in advance.

  9. 1. How do I keep the other blogs pages from coming through to the main blog?

    I think there's a setting in SWT to disable the pages. I didn't go check.

    2. How or where would I put a network wide style to text wrap my pics?

    Make a small plugin, toss it in mu-plugins. :) All you'll be doing is hooking in to wp_head and inserting those styles everywhere.

    3. When I imported all my old posts from other sites, the HTML for my amazon.com codes disappeared...any thoughts on that?

    Yep, it does that.

    Oh! you wanted to know how to fix it? ;P

    4. How do I get the home page on the base blog to just have excerpts

    edit the theme on the main site. There's a function called the_exceprt, use it instead of the_content. this is the exact same as in single wp. it's not multsite specific.

    .I'd like to add direct links to all my other sites on the home page in the pages navigation section with something like Redirectify...is there a better way?

    Um, yes.

    You could add the links in a custom menu.
    you could use this function in the nav area
    http://wpmututorials.com/plugins/newest-blogs-widget/
    then style it appropriately.

    I'd also, if there were pie in the sky and everything was awesome, also like to have that navigation go across all the sites

    Just like pie and its many wonderful flavors, there are many ways to do this. if the theme on each of the other blog was the same, it's a little easier.

    If you're asking how to get the same nav bar on a whole pile of different themes? Yeah. Sky-pie time. ;P
