I have a wordpress multisite installtion with 5 sites within, the multisite is called Lifestyle

  1. Homes
  2. Cars
  3. Architecture
  4. Holidays
  5. Communities

I am trying to get the blog name, for each blog when viewing in my theme, every function I use returns 'Lifestyle'.

I have tried;



global $current_site; var_dump(get_current_site_name($current_site));


none of the strings or objects returned contain the blog name, they all contain the site name "Lifestyle" can anyone offer any advice...

  • social-ink.net/blog/… this looks interesting.... anything you can work with? Wait, I might be misunderstanding.... you are trying to list each site ON said site, or sites on the main site? Commented Apr 21, 2011 at 11:54

This is what you need:

global $blog_id;
$current_blog_details = get_blog_details( array( 'blog_id' => $blog_id ) );
echo $current_blog_details->blogname;

Have a nice multisite! :)
