[resolved] How Does This Plugin Function? (13 posts)

    Do the Posts only reside in one place yet show on both the sub and main blog? How is it different from plugins like Multi Post or ThreeWP Broadcast. Does the 5000 post default limit (or whatever I change it to) mean that posts that exceed that limit are also deleted from the originating subdomain or just the main page? Are there consequences to increasing the limit to, oh say, 1,000,000? Are there plans to maintain this plugin? Sorry for the remedial question but I didn't see my questions answered in any of the forums (no sticky notes either Andrea :-)) - but that could be a result of my own research skills.

    Sitewide Tags makes a copy of the post in the SWT blog/site.

    I don't know what those other two plugins do.

    1,000,000 posts in any WP site would require a dedicated server if it has any amount of traffic,

    Hi Ron: Multi-Post plugin make a copy in whatever the author or admin designate. What's the advantage of creating an entire new blog to make copies in? The problem I have in the multi-post plugin is that it carries over the image urls for the originating blog, which then don't seem to work for thumbnail widgets like those in genesis (e.g., featured post widget). So I have to go into the second blog post and create new images. Then if I edit the original blog post, it wipes out my image edits in the second blog post. So I'm wondering if this plugin will avoid that problem?

    To simplify what I'm asking in the previous post: I'm looking for a plugin that allows me true single entry, which means the Post has to play nice with excerpt/thumbnail widgets and the Dynamic Content Gallery widget in auto multi-post dispaly mode. Typically, this means there needs to be a resident image (i.e., not in another blog even if its in the same multi-site NW). Ha - so much for smiplying - hope you get what I'm asking ;-)

    If you search the SP support forum for "sitewide tags" you should find a thread where I explained how to do the thumbnails with a Genesis child theme.

    Found this in which you suggested adding the code below to the child theme functions.php file but it was a 2009 thread. Is it still valid?

    function my_swt_thumb_filter( $thumb, $args, $post ) {
            if( function_exists( 'sitewide_tags_thumbnail_link' ) )
                    $thumb = sitewide_tags_thumbnail_link( $thumb, $post->ID ); 
    
            return $thumb;
    }
    add_filter( 'genesis_pre_get_image', 'my_swt_thumb_filter', 10, 3 );

    The date of the original post on the thread is 11-13-2010. If you want to ask support questions about Genesis please post a thread in the StudioPress forum and refer to that thread.

    The WordPress.org forums are for support of WP & the themes and plugins hosted in the WP repository. Commercial products are expected to procide their own support facilities.

    Thanks Andrea and Ron. Unfortunately, none of the threads listed in SP in response to the search term "sitewide tags" started with a post dated 11-13-2010. Do you have a link for it?

    The date of the original post on the thread (that you linked to) is 11-13-2010.

    Genesis was initially released in 2010 and there are no Genesis threads in the SP forum dated 2009. You may have got the 2009 from the register date of the poster.

    How can I get the plugin to work with plugins like Dynamic Content Gallery, which create an excerpt and match it with a large image from the Post, and display it in a Slider or Carousel? Or would the code above work with it?

    Also, I can't seem to control the thumbnail size with my excerpt widget settings on the main blog. I tried adding the code suggested by you at this thread but still couldn't get it to change, other than by going into the meta box in the local post. Any suggestions?
