Multisite - Plugins not working (sitewide tags and network latest post) (2 posts)

    I recently made my site a multisite with sub domains. I have one main site and six sub domains, and I want the blog posts from the sub domains show up on the main blog. Therefore I installed Sitewide tags which seems to be the solution to my problem, but I can't get it working.

    I have enabled Post to main blog in the Global tags section from the network admin dashboard. I have written a new post on one of the sub domains but nothing shows up on the main blog except for the main blog posts.

    Main site/blog: mamaqueerest.com
    Sub domain: musik.mamaqueerest.com

    Also I have a plugin called Network Latest Posts, that should be getting the latest blog posts either using short codes or using a widget. None of these are working, the widget shows up but isn't showing the blog posts from the other sites/blogs.

    This makes me think this is a problem with the multisite, and not the plugins.

    All of my sites/blogs shows up under All sites and under My sites, all of them are working standalone. Is there anyone who knows what could be causing the problem?

    Hello Ellen,

    It seems there's a problem with your multi-site installation, because you've tested two different plugins and none of them can retrieve the posts.

    Are you completely sure you've a fully functional WordPress Network? (check this article: http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network).

    Could you also please check your database?, in this case Network Latest Posts looks for this structure $your_db_prefix_$number_tablename for example: wp_2_posts, if your database doesn't use this structure maybe you don't have a fully-functional WordPress Network.

    Network Latest Posts doesn't work for individual installations grouped inside a folder. Please let me know what you find out.

    Best regards.
