Best way to have mulitple sites share article data base (8 posts)

    I'm looking into having multiple news sites sharing articles depending on relevance. The idea is to avoid double work writing the same news multiple times. How should I proceed?

    I don't think it's an extremely efficient plugin (so I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for a huge website/network; though it does work for the most part on UMW Blogs), but you could try using FeedWordPress to syndicate the content from one site on the network to another site on the network. That plugin basically reads an RSS feed, then publishes new posts on the target network based on the content of that feed.

    For instance, if you wanted to publish all articles with the tag "news-story" from blog A onto blog B, you would type in the feed URL for the news-story tag feed into FeedWordPress on blog B. Then, all "news-story" tagged articles published on blog A would be published (syndicated) on blog B.

  3. you could try using FeedWordPress to syndicate the content from one site on the network to another site on the network.

    And if you do this with more than a handful of sites, you will bring down your entire server.

    Ask me how I know. ;)

    @anders - are you running a network of sites?

    Yes and no.... We are going to use WordPress for the site of the European Dragracing Series and would also like to share news articles with at least one other racing news site... That other site got about 1000000 page views a month

  5. Are both sites hosted on the same WordPress Multisite install?

    Not decided yet... we are still dwelling on the best option. Functionallity is priority...

  7. We're asking for a purpose :)

    This:

    We are going to use WordPress for the site of the European Dragracing Series

    implies you have not yet built your site.

    This:

    would also like to share news articles with at least one other racing news site... That other site got about 1000000 page views a month

    implies you HAVE built this site.

  8. This:

    would also like to share news articles with at least one other racing news site... That other site got about 1000000 page views a month

    Actually to me this implies that the other site is not yours and may be pulling the articles you post?
