[resolved] Using Excerpts from Other Blogs (5 posts)

    Hey Guys,

    I'm working on a website that acts as our company's home page - containing information like hours, contact info, and examples of work. We also maintain two blogs on the same server but not within the same wordpress setup - they are in subfolders with their own wordpress.

    I'm looking for a way to call the title, date posted, author, and excerpt information from the latest post on each of the two external blogs, and display it on our home page so visitor's can get a glimpse of what we write about.

    Any advice, plugins or links to tutorials I can follow would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    You could grab the RSS feed from each of the blogs and use that to display the latest posts.

    I was leaning toward that. Is there any particular plugin or other parser you'd suggest? I'd like to be able to keep a total character limit on the excerpt etc.

    Simple Pie might be a good parser to have a look at.
