Resuing wordpress assets (posts, pages etc) across multisite (5 posts)

    Hi all,

    Not sure if this has been addressed, but does anyone know if it is possible to reuse content across many sites in WP3.0? I can see that each subsite has it's own dedicated db tables so wonder if there is a mod that can be performed to:

    a) include in the wp loop the ability to grab posts from a different site table
    b) add admin options to assign posts to subsites (much like the new super user user admin)

    Maybe a topic for 'beyond the codex' forum?

    This is probably beyond the codex yeah, but I for one would love to see such a solution. Maybe a 'Super-sticky' feature for a start, so you can stick posts from all sites to the main site?

  3. We've talked about this a lot in the forum. :) And I noted it in the sticky here.

    all posts on the main page, or a specific blog:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-mu-sitewide-tags/
    this pulls full content (mostly)

    or as list:
    http://wiki.thisblueroom.net/wiki/Wordpress_MU_sitewide_recent_posts_plugin

    old code, so needs cleanup, or wait a bit until i get the new one out. ;)

    Push posts to specific blogs:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/threewp-broadcast/
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/multipost-mu/

    Also, old posts from the mu forums to reference:
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=+site:mu.wordpress.org+wpmu+most+recent+posts&sa=X&ei=Z0hITP6XAYq1nAet9Km6DQ&ved=0CDcQrQIwBQ

    Out of the box, each site is siloed. it will likely stay that way.

    Cheers Andrea

    multipost_mu looks like it will do the job.

    I do like the segregation of the blogs although it still dumbfounds me that if this is the principle then why does user registration only sign users up to the master! But that's another topic

  5. Think of how it works on wordpress.com then it all makes sense. ;)

    try http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/multisite-user-management/ if you want to fiddle with users signing up to specific blogs.
