I'm running a Wordpress MU website and each website has its own "life" but now I would like to show last X posts of each blog of my network on the homepage.

I know how to do it using Feeds and a plugin named FeedPress but this is a "dirty" way to do it. Is there anyone who knows how to do it?

If you've already got a solution that works using FeedPress you might as well stay with that, there isn't a particularly clean way of aggregating multisite posts into a single blog.

One alternative is to use the Sitewide Tags plugin, but given what you want to do, you should probably stay with what's working.

Using FeedPress and RSS feeds is an easy solution but it also uses a lot of resources, a few months ago I tested this plugin because I wanted to create a news aggregator but adding 8/9 feeds (with more then 50 daily posts each) increased my server load so much that I had to close the news aggregator due to a lack of performance, this is the reason why I'm trying a different solution like query_post but between different blogs inside the same Wordpress MS installation. – Downloadtaky Mar 23 '11 at 13:47
Do you mean FeedWordPress? I've used that without experiencing heavy load. But if that's a concern then try the Sitewide tags plugin I mentioned in my answer – anu Mar 23 '11 at 13:57
ops, yes, FeedWordpress :-) Ok, I'll try thank you very much for you patience! Anyway I'm still open to new solutions, I love to learn new stuff. – Downloadtaky Mar 23 '11 at 13:58
