I have a few WordPress sites and I want to make it easier to manage. I was thinking of being able to switch sites in the dashboard like WordPress multi-site, but when I was looking into it I see that's only for blogs inside blogs (if that makes sense). Is there anyway to link to different blogs together (I have around 5 blogs all with content on them so I don't want to make them in to 1 site with mapped domains).

So to sum up, I want to make it really easy/fast to switch between sites for the admins. I like how WordPress multi-site does it, but I don't want to move all the blogs in to one and map the domains, the domains are all on 1 server. Is this at all possable and if so how? Are there any plugins?

EDIT: If there is no way, how would I make 6 single WordPress sites into a WordPress multi-site?

  • @Jason Arr, Sorry.. never knew, i will keep the question on here for a while just in case..

  • Perchance, can you explain why you are reluctant to use Multisite, with domain mapping? Feb 20, 2012 at 21:41

There is an external services that let you manage multiple sites from one dashboard like manageWP.

But i would recommend moving them all in to a multisite install and here is a nice codex entry that shows just how to do that Migrating Multiple Blogs into WordPress Multisite

    I agree. Multisite, with domain mapping, is the way to go here. Feb 20, 2012 at 21:40
  • ok, thanks.. looks like i will be making a multisite.. just wondering doing it this way will it improve performance at all or is it just the same? Feb 20, 2012 at 23:41
  • One thing is for sure, you will be able to jump form one site's dashboard to another very easly :)
