After searching here and posting on other forums, I'm at my wits ends trying to figure out what happened to a feature that used to show the most recent post from a specified blog in all user dashboards across the network.
Does this mock screenshot look familiar to anyone?
In short, the most recent blog post from our main site used to appear in a notice at the top of all user dashboards along with a dismiss link.
At one point in time I remember setting the feed from which to pull post titles, but for the life of me I cannot remember if this was done via a plugin or some native WP Admin option. After extensively reviewing all our plugins, however, I can't help but think this was a WP feature that has been removed.
Since updating to WP(MS) 3.1.2 the blog post notice no longer appears in any dashboards. We used to show these recent posts on multiple installs, and now none of them display the notice.
The feeds from which these notices were showing posts all validate. I've reviewed the WP changelogs and don't notice any related feature that has been removed. None of our plugins have been updated in the time frame that relates to the notice no longer appearing.
Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
