Multisite Advice (6 posts)

    Hi Ron,

    I am just wondering if you could give me a bit of advice. I have limited exposure to WP multisites and I have a client that would like 5 sites all tied into the same database.

    Most (80%) of the content will be mirrored across all sites so I wanted to be able to have it so that adding/removing/editing pages/posts etc. would apply 'network wide'. Having played around with the MU Sitewide Tags plugin it appears as though this only mirrors content between 2 sites? Is that correct?

    What do you think would be the best way to go about this? Are there any WP solutions? Any advice would be greatly appreciated :)

    Cheers,
    Phillip

    Sitewide tags will mirror content from 4 of the sites to the 5th one.

    I'm not aware of any plugins that do that type of mirroring. I work full time and don't take consultation of dev projects.

    FYI - with multisite, the blogs each have their own database.
    It sounds like you want one blog to popular 4 other sites. Sitewide does the opposite though I think if you install the plugin on each child blog and set it up to pull the main blog, you could make it work.

    You could also try FeedWordpress which works with RSS.

    No they don't. All the sites use the same DB unless you are using a plugin like http://wordpress.org/plugins/shardb/.

    I just heard of this plugin the other day but haven't had chance to check it out http://wordpress.org/plugins/threewp-broadcast/
    It may or may not be useful.
