Publishing from subsites in mainsite in WP Multisite (7 posts)

    Hello everybody,

    Let's assume that I have one main site (for example http://www.mycarnews.org), and I have also several subsites ( ford.mycarnews.org, delorean.mycarnews.org, toyota.mycarnews.org, cadillac.mycarnews.org, etc etc ).

    I'd like to write posts on the subsites and have them replied inside my main site.

    How I can do this?

    I will check it. Thanks.

    But what about the viceversa?
    I mean writing posts on the main site and show on the subsite just the posts in the related category?

  3. You don't want to do it that way.

    The reason Sitewide Tags works is canonical URLs. It knows that when the main site gets a child-site's post, it's a mid-point URL, pointing to the child, and doesn't impact your SEO.

    If you do it the other way, you'll hurt your search rankings.

    Check out this great plugin: Network Latest Posts

    It doesn't duplicate content on the network.

  5. I would actually hold off on that one until 3.5 comes out, due to how it uses switch_to_blog. In 3.5, WP fixed that :) If you have a huge site and use NLP, it may cause issues. Small site is fine, and post 3.5's release is even better :D

    Thanks Mika; I'll have to research WP's current issues with switch_to_blog and how 3.5 fixes it.
