Is it possible to get the post excerpt from a different site in my Multisite Network?

1 Answer 1


Yes, using switch_to_blog() you can load another Wordpress site, get what you want, then revert back to your current site and carry forward any retrieved data.

// the different site ID in your Wordpress Network
$otherSite = 3;

// the post excerpt you're after in the different site
$otherSitesPost = 42;

switch_to_blog( $othersite );

$otherSitesPostExcerpt = get_post($otherSitesPost)->post_excerpt;


echo "Site #{$otherSite} post #{$otherSitesPost} excerpt: {$otherSitesPostExcerpt}";
