This plugin creates four (4) seperate RSS 2.0 feeds from posts, comments, pages, and one combined [posts & pages] across all blogs on your site.

Usage

Compatible with WP Multi-Network plugin . You can have different blog ID than 1 to trigger the full feed.

To Do

  • Comply fully for language translation
  • Exclude blogs by ID
  • Enable/disable individual sitewide feeds
  • Option to include the blog title in the post title shown in the feed
  • Consider changing the function ada_get_avatar_url() to use the core hook get_avatar(). So it can work with WPMUDEV’s Avatars for Multisite.
  • Option to exclude by post types

Screenshots

  • Super Admin Settings

FAQ

Why http://yourdomain.com/full-feed/ is not working?
  • Only if you install WPMU/ WP 3.0 as subdomain installation when you installed WordPress, you will be able to have feeds like “yourdomain.com/full-feed/”. When you install WPMU/ WP 3.0 into a subdirectory installation, your feed url will be something like “yourdomain.com/subdirectory?wpmu-feed=full-feed”.

  • wp-config.php should have either of the below constants defined and set, in order for the plugin to detect its a subdomain installation.

    define(‘SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL’, true);
    define(‘VHOST’, ‘yes’);

My feed is working. But when I include in RSS Widget, it does not show the entries?

You must disable your cache plugin to cache the feed as a static page.
If you are using W3-Total-Cache plugin, add your Feed URL (relative path): to the Never cache the following pages: section under Page Cache Settings. Ex. “/full-feed/” and make sure to clear empty all caches.

The reason is your cache plugin makes the cache of the feed [which has a Content-Type: application/xml]. But after it is cached, when the browser requests, your cache plugin deliver the already cached static file, which now is delivered with Content-Type: text/html]. Some cases, this causes the RSS Widget to not to recognize the feed.

Is the WP Object Cache still in use?

I know its out-of-date. I kept the original codes and cleaned long time ago. I should probably remove WP Object Cache in the next versions. Please suggest a better way on my blog Ada WPMS Sitewide Feed
