[resolved] Easy(ish) way to switch primary site (5 posts)

    I have a multisite install(built on subdirectories,not subdomains).

    On my primary site is the "old site" and a subdirectory is the "new site". I want to replace all the content,posts,theme,etc,on the new site to the old site.

    In summary

    The old site http://www.mysite.com now needs to have everything that http://www.mysite.com/newsite has on it now

    I know that primaries cannot be redirected because of the obvious,so what is the best way to do this and would I need to change the entire configuration?

    Also,i have the "blog copier" plugin installed,but it will only install on yet another subdirectory which won't really accomplish this particular task.

  2. You can do this!

    http://halfelf.org/ebooks/wordpress-multisite-110/ - Chapter 13 has this. No plugin needed.
