    Greetings,
    This plugin is one that I have been waiting on for many months, it is great and I love it.
    I just got the Site Wide Tags plugin working and I know that only new posts or edited posts will be taken into account, so basically, this plugin would be complete if there was a way to automate the process of Editing and Saving the posts in order to publish them in the main blog.
    I am sure this is not a very big problem for an experienced WP coder and it is a feature that would really help the plugin's users.
    If there is a way to do this already, please tell me.

    And also, I want to know, is there a way to display the blog name or a short code before each post title? so that people can see the author's blog name when reading the main blog.

    Thank you!

    I use the following in the postmeta section of The Loop in the tags blog template.

    $details = get_active_blog_for_user(get_the_author_id());
    echo '<a href="' . $details->siteurl . '">' . $details->blogname . '</a>';

    Well, I found an answer to the first problem:

    This should be run in the PHP section of the Powertools plugin.

    //For Donncha's Sitewide Tags plugin: Populate tags blog with all posts made before the plugin was added
    $posts = $wpdb->get_col( "SELECT ID FROM $wpdb->posts WHERE post_status = 'publish'" );
    if ( !empty($posts) ) {
        foreach ( $posts as $post ) {
            $post_id = $post['ID'];
            if($post_id != 1 && $post_id != 2)
                sitewide_tags_post($post_id, get_post($post_id));
        }
    }

    It didn't work, any deas?

    Edit: Thanks dsader, but what if the tags blog uses the same template as all the other blogs? will the blog name be displayed on all blogs?

    mikeboy3, I use multiple copies of the same theme(Blue_home, Blue_2, Blue_tags, etc) and then use SiteAdmin->Blogs->Edit to assign themes to "special" blogs.

    This code is braindamaged.
    $post *is* an integer, the id. $post['ID'] is thus garbage, the net result is to only take the first 10 posts of each blog.
    The proper one is:

    $posts = $wpdb->get_col( "SELECT ID FROM $wpdb->posts WHERE post_status = 'publish'" );
    if ( !empty($posts) ) {
    foreach ( $posts as $post ) {
    if($post != 1 && $post != 2)
    sitewide_tags_post($post, get_post($post));
    }
    }
