Support » Plugin: Multisite Language Switcher » Linking posts by code

  • PG



    Thanks for a wonderful plugin you have made!

    I am currently trying to switch my single site to multisite. I have a number of posts that I would like to link automatically through code. Is there any way to do that ?

    Also, I have an input to make. Since I am having an author based website, I don’t want them to be able to link their posts from other authors.. so in MslsMetaBox.php may be you can try and integrate ‘author’ as well in the query. Right now I have manually handled it, but afraid to have to do it every time there is an update.

    Thanks alot.

    thanks for your message.

    Is there any pattern that could be used to decide which posts should be tied together?

    For the request: Would you share some code to get the idea better?





    Thanks for your reply.

    Yes, actually I have a custom post type that supports custom taxonomy country. Now when I am trying to move the single site to multisite, i have made different countries as different sites. I will run a script that will copy posts from the base site to their appropriate country’s site. In case of multiple countries, I needed to link them together.
    So, I was thinking of having site ids and post ids in hand; if I can link those posts together.

    For the request:
    This is what I have done in MslsMetaBox.php

    $query = array(
    	'post_type'      => $type,
    	'post_status'    => get_post_stati( [ 'internal' => '' ] ),
    	'orderby'        => 'title',
    	'order'          => 'ASC',
    	'posts_per_page' => - 1,
    	'fields'         => 'ids',
    	'author'         => ''
    if ( is_admin() && !current_user_can('edit_others_posts')){
    $my_query = new \WP_Query($query);
