    I've been browsing around this forum looking for info on a project I'm thinking about, but don't seem to find exactly what I'm looking for. So I'll pose the question the group and see what I get.

    Can I do this with WP?

    • Have multiple blogs under one main page.
    • Main page is the portal and summary of the multiple blogs.
    • Summaries are collections of the main features of the individual blogs: Links, Feeds, Postings.
    • CSS and layout of main page and individual blogs controlled by main admin.
    • Color scheme appears in summary. e.g. Bob's theme is red and on the main page his posts have red background.

    Lot's of people appear to want something along these lines.

    I've a couple of ideas how this might be possible.

    You could use an RSS aggregator like Carp to fetch the last 10 or so entries from each blog ...

    Anyhow, i'm busy now, but i got another idea too.

    I've been thinking more along these lines...

    What if there was a WP that could access all the different DB's of the many muti users WP installs, then take those as the data for the "main" summary blog? I still think that some sort of style should be carried from the many to the one sumamry page.

    On RSS:

    I've seen some, and played with, MagpieRSS.

    I tried this one out and it worked for me: http://soderlind.no . He was very helpful!
