[resolved] Sharing information between sites. (3 posts)

    Is it possible to share data between sites? For example can I modify wp_query or query_posts to grab data from another site?

    A little extra info on what I'm trying to achieve:
    - I have a site with a custom post type called "Profile" and custom fields
    - I have a shortcode set up to display information from those profiles
    - I would like to be able to use those same shortcodes on all my sites but they need to be able to get data from the main site.

  2. You can use switch_to_blog to pull data from a particular site.

    Caveats:
    not so good on large sites
    will be replaced eventually

    If all blogs need to access the data... why not save it in a global table? (this would mean not using custom post types though)

    That worked perfectly, thanks for helping me again Andrea!

    Edit: To answer your question though, I want my editors to be able to edit the information in those custom post types easily so a global table wouldn't be ideal.
