Multiuser blog with main summary page

  • 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.

    how do you do that in RSS?

    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!
