    I'm using the latest version of wp-mu, and I have a home page on my site that isn't a a wordpress mu blog page. Is there a way to call/fetch for pieces of information from wp onto this page?
    Like could I have a section that I can fetch data from, like the latest post from a specific blog, or does this page have to be located inside the wordpress-mu folder in order to fetch data from wordpress.

    If you want to get an idea of what I'm asking.

    Take some time to learn about RSS. Every blog has an RSS feed URL (e.g. http://new-wav.com/blogs/yourblogname/feed) which provides a machine-readable summary of the latest posts. Combine that with the right code in your HTML page to read and display it, and you're done. Example here: http://www.labnol.org/internet/tools/embed-rss-feeds-add-html-websites-javascript/2515/

    Thanks, I have always played with html, and php. I never realized that rss could be such a powerful thing. Thanks.

    Still, if you don't mind me asking, for other stuff I want to do later down the road, can I fetch data from wordpress to a page like this?
