Sitewide tags (17 posts)

    I'm having heaps of trouble with this awesome plugin.
    I can't get it to populate the main blog (this is miss-spelled on the admin page BTW, it says "Poplate Posts"
    It used to work great but now I've got some sites with a few thousand posts and I've accumulated thousands of tags on the main site.
    I suspect its the large tag and post tables are causing a problem.
    Deleting the tags seemed to help for a while but I'm getting a lot of timeouts and server PHP exceeded errors.
    I've gone to a VPS with 4Gig memory and set the PHP memory to 256, but its still not populating the main blog.
    I'm still getting PHP exceeded errors and sometimes it just disables the plugin and takes me to the admin page with the enabled box unticked and other options hidden until I tick it.
    Now I'm getting another error

    The page isn't redirecting properly
    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.
    * This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept

  2. Download the development version to populate existing posts, and turn off all your other plugins while you're running it.

    Though... that'll only help you if you can get back in. Where are you getting that error?

    Thanks, where is the development version available?
    I get that error as the page tries to reload

    You said before that I should only have SWT activated on the main blog, but the notes so to network activate it (doesn't make any difference as far as I can tell)

    Also, if I just want to populat one blog is the blog ID the number (incredibly hard to find in 3.1) or the slug?

    Typical time out error
    Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /home/user/public_html/wp-includes/taxonomy.php on line 1365

    I have asked by hosts to increase max execution time as this is low, but this occurs even if its only trying to add 10 posts (set max posts to 140 with 132 posts already on)

    Have tried with all other plugins deactivated and Devt version and now get a new error after clicking populate posts

    Fatal error: Cannot use object of type WP_Error as array in /home/user/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-mu-sitewide-tags/sitewide-tags.php on line 194

  7. Okay, first and foremost, STOP with the one post after another within minutes of each other. You can edit your posts, and it's better to have one, calm, post explaining what's going on.

    Second, and also important, remember that people live and work in different time zones. I went to bed last night, and the devs who support the plugin were already IN bed.

    The dev version is here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-mu-sitewide-tags/download/

    You should NETWORK activate the plugin (nowhere did I say it should be activated on the main blog - no idea what you're talking about here), just like it the doc says, and yes, it makes a HUGE difference.

    After that, you're past my ability to support the plugin (I'm not as familiar as I could be), so I'm tagging the post for the devs.

    See this thread for my suggestions on using the populate posts in the dev version: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/aggregating-multisites?replies=23

    Hi,
    Thanks Ron and Ipstenu
    I checked out the link and tried the dev version but still couldn't propogate

    I'm finding I can't even save my settings, much less propogate the posts
    When I try to update settings I get:

    Fatal error: Cannot use object of type WP_Error as array in /home/dallasm/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-mu-sitewide-tags/sitewide-tags.php on line 194

    (This seems to be more on the dev version)
    OR
    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 268435456 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 71 bytes) in /home/user/public_html/wp-includes/taxonomy.php on line 1353
    (this was on the main version)

    (I increased my PHP memory to 256M from 64M hoping that would fix it.)
    This seems like a lot of memory just to save the settings!

    One of my blogs has 2000 posts and some have heaps of tags: thousands (due to autotagging of a status-update type site). I've suspected these may be an issue but not sure)

    There are lots of old posts in the trash on the main site from ones which have pushed over the limit (currently set at 200 to minimise resource use while I tried to sort out the problem)

    So effectively the plugin is administratively frozen for me. It seems to still be adding posts though

  10. One of my blogs has 2000 posts and some have heaps of tags: thousands (due to autotagging of a status-update type site). I've suspected these may be an issue but not sure)

    That's the issue right there. :)

    I'd clean out the trash on that blog for starters. "populate posts" is only for exisiting posts in sub blogs that you wanted to push thru. Once.

    New posts will go thru on their own, as well as updated older posts. that means, if someone were to update the posts on that old blog, they'd come through as well.

    Thanks Andrea,
    Do you think its more likely to be the old posts in trash on the main blog or the large # of tags and posts on other blogs.

    I've been reluctant to empty the trash because if I can't get populate posts to work that might be the only way to get old posts back onto the main blog.

    The biggest site is a local news aggregating site: so it has lots of tags AND posts: is it most likely to be one or the other so I know where to start?

    Thanks

  12. My guess is tags. Anything I've ever done - including basic imports - that has mondo tags just.... takes buckets of resources.

    This seems like a lot of memory just to save the settings!

    A super admin's memory limit in the admin area is already 256MB. If you are exhausting memory saving the SWT settings then have a problem elsewhere in your install.

    In the thread I referred you to, I recommended turning off all your plugins. Have you tried that?

    Hi Ron, yes, I had turned off all the plugins and tried with and without the dev version with no success.
    Thats good to know about the Super-admin memory, though I'm sure I've been getting memory exceeded errors saying 67,234,534 or similar.
    I actually JUST tried again before refreshing this page (about the 20th time: haven't changed anything just being bloodyminded) and I was able to update the settings, so at least it will keep pulling new posts.
    BTW where is the "tags" blog: it doesn't seem to be at tags.mainsite.com or mainsite.com/tags? When I try to change it from "tags" it reverts to "tags"
    Still no luck propogating (Used to work :-( ) So I will next try deleting tags from the big blogs (already deleted all unused tags from main site.
    Really great plugin by the way.... wish it was working OK again !

  15. BTW where is the "tags" blog: it doesn't seem to be at tags.mainsite.com or mainsite.com/tags? When I try to change it from "tags" it reverts to "tags"

    If you checked the option to use the main site, then the name of the tags blog is no longer applicable. :) Cuz it;s using the main site. :D

    Thanks Andrea, makes sense.
    OK, more general question (perhaps belongs in a new thread).
    How can I keep the blog_title from the source blog.
    I'd like to have the title on the new blog be:
    "Source blog: original title"
    and be able to code my theme to say
    "Read the original post at Source Blog"
    I can do all this but of course it uses the main blog name instead of the referring blog.
    I'm guessing I create a custom field then select that to be copied across.
    I wondered though if Sitewide tags creates something like this when it copies the posts. I'm sure this would be useful to lots of people and I would have thought easy to put into the plugin.

    I'm fairly sure that someone made a custom version of SWT that did this. It wouldn't be that difficult to do. However, it's not something most people using SWT would use, so it's not likely to ever be incorporated into the plugin.
