How do you merge multiple blogs into one WordPress 3.0 installation? (6 posts)

    I have several blogs on one server, each in a separate folder using WordPress 2.9:


    Each has its own database and unique url.

    How can I merge these into a single WordPress 3.0 installation? Anyone have a step-by-step guide to merging everything?

    I'm looking for a similar solution in WordPress 3.0 using the multisite feature. For previous installs I've used this (which would work with WP 3.0). http://www.genki.co.nz/cramp/mulitple-wordpress-sites-on-one-installation

    This allows for unique URL's which I'm guessing would need some htaccess fiddling in WP 3.0? Anyone have some advise, or is the link above still the best option?

    This has worked almost 100% successfully for me, with the exception of Permalinks are not working.

    That's a pretty big exception!

    But, seriously, this is supposed to be a major feature of this WordPress edition. It's a bit weird that there isn't an official WordPress "how to" guide somewhere.

    Hopefully soon and please let me know, anyone, if you find an answer!

    I'm looking for a beginner's step-by-step guide to configuring WordPress 3 for multiple blogs using a single site and single database, including how to display a chosen blog or multiple blogs at a time. Not having used previous versions, I'm sure of the possibilities, such as having one post from blog A in the main area and blog B being displayed in a side bar. I've gotten so far with the official guide to enable multi-site, but I want to use sub folders rather than sub domains if this is possible? I'd like to be able to combine several blogs in differing arrangements on the same site to create most "page" content from blogs rather than static pages.
