    It must not work anymore. I don't get an error on install but there is no Site Wide Tags admin area anywhere in the WP admin.

    I'm getting the same problem, not finding any "Site Admin" "Options".

    I placed the plugin in the normal plugin folder, then Network Activated the plugin.

    It now appears in my list of plugins however the /tags site only contains the demo post and does not collect any new posts from other sites.

    Works fine here. Always has.

    There is no Global Tags section at the bottom of Super Admin > Options page?

    So is this plugin working for people running 3.0.1 multisite?

    It seems to install OK for me, but the /tags site it creates doesn't collect posts.

  8. Please read the instructions - it goes in the mu-plugins folder, not the regular plugins folder.

    Snap, I didn't specifically install it in that directory, however I DID install it from the automatic installer in the WP dashboard. Does this put it in the correct directory?

    Either way it seems to be working great. The Tags site is pulling in posts just fine. Now I just have to find out how to call the loop to put in one of the category boxes on my site: http://www.mymythos.org

  10. however I DID install it from the automatic installer in the WP dashboard. Does this put it in the correct directory?

    No, it puts plugins in the plugins folder.

    You can also Network Activate the plugin when it is in the regualr plugins folder, but I prefer it to go in the mu-plugins folder. It won't show up in the plugins list that way, and other super admins can't accidentally turn it off.

    Sorry Andrea-r, you are correct of course!

    It should go in the mu-plugins folder, ignore my comment above.

    I got the plugin in the mu-plugin folder and it seems to be installed correctly. I have seem the Must-do part with the plugin in there and i have change the options in the panel of admin, but it still don't show nothing.
    any suggestions?
    Thanks.

    ( With Wp 3.0.1.)

    the fix
    replace all calls to $wpmuBaseTablePrefix with $wpdb->base_prefix

    the hack
    Find global $wpmuBaseTablePrefix;

    and replace it with
    global $wpdb, $wpmuBaseTablePrefix;
    $wpmuBaseTablePrefix = $wpdb->base_prefix;

    You do not need to add $wpdb to the global if is already there

  14. It does work in wp 3.0.1...

    Most people havign problem either don't install it correctly or don't read the instructions where it states it will pull from *public* blogs all news posts as they are posted.

    as they are posted.

    Do I infer from that comment that existing blog posts will not be displayed, only new posts made since the plugin is installed?

  16. Yes, exactly.

    There are future plans to get previous posts, but for right now, it doesn't. Write a post. It will show up.

    I'm on 3.0.1 and there is no MU directory. Also, what does this mean?
    "Remember to to add a post loop to home.php in the theme directory if it exists."

  18. I'm on 3.0.1 and there is no MU directory.

    Make one. It used to be included with wpmu, now it's not - it's just a folder.

    Also, what does this mean?
    "Remember to to add a post loop to home.php in the theme directory if it exists."

    Do you have a theme that shows the posts on home.php? If so, ignore that. this was only for themes that use home.php and do not show posts - liek the default theme they had in WPMU.

    My setup: WP MS version 3.0.2 and the plugin folder "wordpress-mu-sitewide-tags" containing the pluginĀ“s files is located in wp-content/mu-plugins

    Now what? No extra options added to wp-admin/ms-options.php

  20. and the plugin folder "wordpress-mu-sitewide-tags" containing the pluginĀ“s files is located in wp-content/mu-plugins

    Don't put the folder in there. Put the FILE.

    That's how the mu-plugins folder works - it reads files that are placed in there - not the folder like the plugins folder works.

    Also every instruction for it says the FILE. not folder.

    Hi, I'm relatively new to wordpress, but also having problems with the sitewide-tags plugin.

    * I installed sitewide-tags.php into mu-plugins in my wp-content directory
    * The global tags options showed up in my super-admin settings
    * I left the site-name as 'tags' and checked 'Post to main blog'
    * hit save

    The options seem to have persisted, but the 'tags' site is not created, and when I post to one of the sub sites, nothing is posted to the main blog.

    What should I do to troubleshoot next?

  23. but the 'tags' site is not created,

    Because you checked "post to main blog" and thus are not using a "tags" blog. ;)

    when I post to one of the sub sites, nothing is posted to the main blog.

    Is the sub-site a public blog?
