    in wpmu terms, it only work per-blog

    perhaps i misconfigure it, but here is what have i done:
    1. install and activate it
    2. on superAdmin-options i enable tags-blog
    3. i choose tags (to create a blog of global tags)
    4. logout and re-login as site-user (blog user in wpmu)
    5. create new post (with categories and tags) and publish it
    6. go checking mydomain/tags (im using sub-directory structure) and found nothing new

    have i missing something?

  5. yes, you missed something.

    Put it in the mu-plugins folder *not* the regualr plugins folder. It does mention this in the readme.

    The mu-plugins folder may need to be created under the /wp-content/

    thx andrea, it work.

    my next problem is, i want the latest blog posts to show on front page, so i setup the SWT to "post to main blog", and that exactly it does... it adds the blog posts to main blog post.
    how can i separate those two? (latest sub-blog posts and latest main-blog posts)

    OOT: is it (the mu-plugins directory) the place to put all wpmu-based plugins? since im using wp3 and previously i thought all the plugins go to plugins directory... on second thoughts maybe thats the culprit for some unfunctional plugins i tested :(

    or... can the latest sub-blog posts be a link? not to create new posts on main blog?

  8. OOT: is it (the mu-plugins directory) the place to put all wpmu-based plugins?

    only use it if the plugin's readme file says to put the plugin there. Code in that folder runs all the time.

    can the latest sub-blog posts be a link? not to create new posts on main blog?

    for that you'd need a different plugin. ;)

    it adds the blog posts to main blog post.
    how can i separate those two?

    you could re-do parts of your theme to make sections for posts from the main blog to certain categories show in one area, then everything else in the rest.

    Hi All,

    I am trying all possibilities to get the most recent posts from all blogs on my home page.

    But unfortunately i am not able to do it yet. I tried SWT also.

    I have installed it. checked the post to main site option. (faced difficulty in putting the loop)

    Tried to create the mu-plugins directory moved SWT to mu-plugins.

    Put the child blogs to public blogs.

    tried various possibilities of loops here at wordpress.org

    Hope i haven't missed any possibility.

    Awaiting eagerly for your response.

    Regards,
    Sam.
