    I am running wordpressMU 2.7.1 on a wordpress theme which i like the look and feel. Now the problem am experiencing is; i am not able to display recent posts from individual blogs onto the main blog. The other problem is i am unable display thumbnail pictures onto the featured posts on the home page of my main blog.

    Link is http://blog.butterfly.co.ke

    Please help
    Thanks you.

    so what? what do you expect now?

    the functionality you want, needs some coding and/or plugins. for a start check: wpmudev.org

    "i am not able to display recent posts from individual blogs onto the main blog."

    Then you need either some "most recent posts" plugins from the link Ovidiu put, or use the Sitewide tags plugin. This puts a copy of all posts into the main blog, after you set it up that way.

    This will also help pull in the thumbnails for the posts as well.

    It's not a matter of editing the theme, it's a matter of using the right plugins.
