[Plugin: WordPress MU Sitewide Tags Pages] Sitewide Commenting (5 posts)

    Hi all,

    Essentially, I plan on operating a Multisite installation with two children blogs, /brett/ and /lucy/. I plan on having whatever is written on these two blogs to appear on the main blog.

    I have found two ways to effectively do this. The first is by aggravation by RSS. Particularly by using FeedWordPress. The issue with this is that it relies on RSS to grab information internally, which is inefficient.

    The other is using WordPress MU Sitewide Tags Pages. This seems to work fine, but seems to share a similar issue with the first. That is, it doesn't show a comment number for the original post.

    While I know that people might say, you don't need it, that they'll notice when they click on the post. I disagree, I think many readers will read the post on the main site, and see that it says "Comments Off" for the blog, and leave it at that.

    Back in a thread someone stated <span class="comments-link"><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>#respond">Leave a Comment</a></span> would be a way around this. Is it possible, however, to display the number of comments on the posts to appear on the main page? If if you click the comment number (e.g 5 Comments) on the mainpage it'll direct you to that posts' comments; so for example /brett/DDMMYY/Hello-World/#respond, etc?

    I've seen that there's a lot of demand for something like this from browsing the internet time and time again.

    Both FeedWordPress and SWT copy the post when it's published. Neither have the facility to update every time a comment is left. If you check http://wordpress.org/support/profile/dsader forum posts, you should find something for tracking the comment count with SWT.

    Thanks for the response,

    I tried implementing everything which was suggested at: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/aggregating-recent-posts-to-parent-site-comments-are-off-on-aggregated-posts?replies=18

    Which is what I'm guessing you suggested. However, I noticed an issue after adding the function and replacing comments_popup_link... with php comments_link..., that when I attempted to activate the theme. It sprung an error:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare ds_sitewide_tags_get_comments_num() (previously declared in /home/fuyutski1/BrettnLucy.net/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-mu-sitewide-tags/sitewide-tags.php:565) in /home/fuyutski1/BrettnLucy.net/wp-content/themes/mistylook2/functions.php on line 122

    112-122 in functions is where I added the suggested function, however sitewide-tags.php doesn't have ds_sitewide_tags_get_comments_num() in the code.

    Any ideas on this? I'm scratching my head.

    Sounds like you put the code the wrong place in your functions file. Make sure it's not inside another function.

    Hi Ron, thanks for the response again!

    I've moved the function to another part of functions.php, and placed it in a separate PHP container just in case, as per:

    http://pastebin.com/GRKbkivB (lines: 45-58)

    The result is that I'm still getting the error, just the line number have changed to 56.
