[resolved] Display another site's blogroll? (5 posts)

    I run several different WordPress driven websites, and I like having a common set of blogroll links so that each site can point to all the others plus a few other related places. However, the bigger the "family" gets, the more cumbersome it is to manage the blogrolls -- add one site, and that site has to have all the blogroll items added, plus all the other sites have to have a new item added for the new site.

    I'd really love it if I could just maintain the blogroll at a single site and then, at the other sites, have some function that calls up the blogroll form that one site where I'm maintaining the information. Can this be done somehow with an OPML feed by referencing the wp-links-opml.php file on a single site? Does anybody know a plugin/widget that would do this easily?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I create blogrolls at my sites through both delicious categories and the blogroll features in newsgator. I'm sure other services do the same thing. Then you just cut/paste the same code into each of your blogs. You aren't updating the blogroll in WordPress, but in one of the other providers and then adding their code to your sidebar code in your template.

    So you can have just a particular set of links in your delicious account as a category separate from other links in your delicious account, and then you can pull just that one particular category of links into WordPress? Is that with the delicious widget that comes standard in WP or some other function?

    Oh, I figured it out via an alternate widget and the bookmark tags, lovely, thanks!!

    Bump! Turns out no solution I can find will do what I really want. I want to take advantage of the fact that WordPress can assign images to each entry in a blogroll and then output those images next to each entry. Delicious is great for centralizing, but it doesn't support the addition of images. And I can't find a plugin that will pull a blogroll-including-images from an external WP site. Thoughts?
