This plugin creates a new blog on your server for all the posts on your site, much like http://wordpress.com/tags/
For performance reasons the number of posts is limited to a user configurable amount, and the blog itself can be made indexable by search engines or not.
- Install in your plugins directory in the usual way and network activate the plugin. There is no need to put it in mu-plugins.
- Login as a site administrator and go to Super Admin->Sitewide Tags.
- “Tags blog” defaults to “tags” but can be anything. This is the blog where your sitewide posts will live. It will be created if it doesn’t exist.
- Check “Post to main blog” to use your main blog as the tags blog.
- “Max posts” defaults to 5000. Older posts will be deleted if this threshold is broken.
- Check “Include Pages” to include both posts and pages, handy for making a sitewide search.
- “Privacy” defaults to public, pages can be indexed by search engines.
- When “Privacy” is not public, check “Non-Public Blogs” to include blogs not indexed by search engines.
- Add “Post Meta” custom fields to be copied with posts/pages.
- “Populate Posts” allows you to fill in posts from an existing blog.
I've been using this plugin since I inherited our HUGE Multisite install way back when it was WordPress Mu 2.2, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future!
It's amazing, 3 years since last update and it still works! Don't know what I will do when it breaks. This is crucial for our network. It's fair as well: it just puts the most recent (x) posts into the main blog.
