Network content sharing by multiposting between blogs for PHP v5.4+. Broadcast can be used to copy posts to other blogs, link posts between blogs, share content as templates, etc. Broadcastable features include:
- Parent post links to child posts
- Posts, pages
- Taxonomies (categories, tags, etc)
- Custom fields
- Attached images
- Featured images
Broadcasted posts can be linked to their parents, which updates child posts when the parent post is updated. This includes all data: title, slug, content, custom fields, attachments, etc.
- Permalinks of child posts (also see Permalinks plugin in the Premium Pack)
- Canonical URLs of child posts.
For those who have Yoast's WordPress SEO plugin installed, if the Broadcast's canonical URL is selected (which will point to the parent post), it will simultaneously disable Yoast's canonical link. This will prevent search engine penalties.
- Groups plugin enables blog grouping for easy selection
- Custom field blacklist, whitelist and protect list.
- Last used settings are remembered
- User role access granularity
- An enormous amount of extra features in the premium pack
