Support » Fixing WordPress » I want to select the blog I want to post to from within the write post page.

  • I want to be able to write my post and save it and then select a blog(s)—from a list of blogs or by clicking an additional submit button—I want to send a copy of that post to.

    I believe this is a kind of cross post function. I didn’t see anything that did what I am looking for or something pretty close. I looked hard.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

  • There is no multiple blogs functionality in WP.

    Could I take an rss feed and send it exclusively to the other blogs that I want to cross post to?

    OK, are you wanting to cross-post between different WordPress blogs? or other blogging clients? Either way, there isn’t a way to automatically cross-post like that. Depending on what you are actually attempting to do, you may be able to use the import feature of WordPress.

    Between WordPress blogs.

    I have been looking at the import feature. I am wondering about the security of the feed and how to administer the syndication.

    Another thought occured to me. I am wondering if I could write a php script and call it “copy post”. Within the script I could set the url of the blog I wanted to copy to and connect it to a submit button. I would put that script in the loop of the post.php.

    I know php but just a bit but I think in theory this should work, assuming there are no permissions problems.

    What do you think?

    I’d hate to be Mr. Obvious here… but have you considered syndication plugins? http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugins/Syndication

    Thank all of you for your suggestions. It looks like one or more the syndication plugins may be useful. I want to be able to select which posts to syndicate.

    I would like to report back on my progress.

    Thanks again.

    I had looked at the syndication plugins before but in case I missed something I reviewed again. Security and robutsness still a problem.
    I would like if possible, to have some feedback on my script idea—”Another thought occured to me. I am wondering if I could write a php script and call it “copy post”.
