Multiple Blogs? (6 posts)

    I'm currently -- and somewhat unhappily -- using MovableType. My usage isn't totally normal.

    Basically, I have one MT directory. There are currently ten users, each with their own blog. The main page, however, runs a plugin I found for MT that will pull in posts from all ten of the blogs.

    I'm really impressed with WP. But is there a way to do this? It's important that it work both ways: it's ten separate blogs (domain.com/username), but also one collective blog (domain.com).

    Surprisingly, this doesn't seem to be an entirely common use of blogs. But does WP support this? Is there a plug-in to do it?

    Here's some basic info on multiple installs of WordPress. Currently it doesn't work the way you are thinking you'd like to have it set up.

    What's the front page? Is it the latest post from each blog, or is it actually a merged continuous listing?

    The latest-post thing could be implemented easily with CG-Feedread -- it allows you to query a number of feeds simultaneously, and then it interleaves the results based on the timestamps.

    I'm working to have a new CG-PowerPack for WP1.5 ready in the next few days.

    Sounds intriguing david, at present I'm content with seperate installations of WP with seperate databases - that's about 5 or 6 installations in total - it was the only way I could think of to get what I wanted.

    Still your plugin sounds quite promising and will no doubt be quite useful for multi wp installs.
