    On my home page of my Network I want it simple.

    I want a list of like 10 or 20 recent blog posts through out the networks site. Below the title I want to have an excerpt of what is in the article. And finally I want to show their gravitar floating on the left hand side.

    How hard is that

    I think you would need to use the Sitewide Tags plugin, but I'm not sure. That's how I pull child site posts to my main site.

  3. Yep.

    then use a regualr wordpress theme that show excerpts.

    That won;t pull the gravatar, you'll need to add some code for that. Just that same as you woudl if it were single wordpress.

    I have the sidewide tag thing bug I don't get how to code it in the theme correctly.

  5. You don't have to. The line about calling a reference to it is based on if you have theme that does not show blog posts on the home page.

    Or are you asking about the avatar bit (it's get_the_avatar)

    Do you have SWT up & running?
