all. Just trying out switch_to_blog() as a way to have a child site get some news items from the parent site. Problem is, the parent site--first tables in database--doesn't have a number, i.e., tables are like www_posts--there's no number to put in the parentheses, 0 doesn't work, empty doesn't work.
How can I reference this original install? Also, is it no longer cool to use switch_to_blog()?
