    I've installed the WPMU Top Posts Plugin from here but I'm only seeing the top posts from the main blog and not all blogs across the WPMU install I'm running.

    Has a fix been found that I've missed in my searches across the forums? I want to display only the most popular post titles and a link through to each post on my homepage and not the most recent/active post from each blog. For example if 3 of the most popular posts are all within one blog I still want them displayed individually on the homepage.

    I have been lookign for this one for a while as weel but havent yet found anything.
    For my site it was good enough that we simply had the most recent post from the blogs and then the highest rated posts for each specific blog once you got to that blog.(so blog specific)

    I can think of a way using ah_recent_posts_mu and the wp-postratings plug-ins that i'm using and modify recent_posts to include all posts and grab the data from post ratings database and order the information by highest rating then display the top 5 or ten.... It would take some php work to develop this but could be packaged as a quite usefull plugin once it's completed.

    I am not familiar with the top posts plugin but i assume it is similar to wp-ratings and stores the values into the data base so you should also be able to fetch that info with a mySql call and get the proper data.
