    Hi, thanks in advance for your help.
    I am setting up a multisite installation where I need a way to see (frontend) all the posts by a particular author. I want to essentially be able to create portfolio pages where all the content by that author (from every site in the network) will display. Is this even possible? Thanks again

    Every site has an RSS feed for each author, which is accessed at http://<blog url>/author/feed. If the number of sites was fixed, you could aggregate these with e.g. Pipes.

    hey, thanks for the response.
    What is Pipes?

    dgilmour is probably referring to Yahoo Pipes

  5. You don't want to do RSS calls like that, really, with Multisite. Nested loops etc.

    I'd use this: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-mu-sitewide-tags/

    Make a 'tags' blog, and have it aggregate everything. Then you can show http://example.com/lists/author/johndoe
