I have a museum client with a multisite setup with pages that detail the exhibits in their facility. They recently added tablets throughout the museum and want their tablets to display only their exhibits (no other extraneous pages from the main site) for visitors to use while in venue.

I thought the solution would be a separate site on their network. However, I don't want them to have to update their exhibits in two different places.

So my question: Is it possible to do a global custom post from the parent website that also displays on a specific child site? And will the custom posts sync for all updates and changes?
