I am having two sites viz. www.a.com and www.a.com/b . Now, these are two seperate wp installations, in the same /root where 'b' is kind of an extended vertical site of 'a'. I want to achieve the technique where I'd be able to show recent (or all that I publish) posts of B on A's front page. The post should look like as it the usual part of A's native posts. For ex- if I post any topic title "my post" on B, then it should appear on its front page plus, it should also appear on A's frontpage. Any help?

Method 1 (tested):
The easiest way that wont even involve any special code is to use
wordpress rss feed... i dont know if this is the solution you are
after but it looks to be the simplest one i can think of...

You can use: feed2js (to build an rss "recent posts" display)

There you can enter the rss feed of the www.a.com/b blog and build a box
that would display recent posts.

feed2js even have some built in design features. Once done you can
simply embed the code you would be given into your template.


Method 2 (unTested but intresting):
i havent tried this but it should word i think... since both wordpress installation are
on the same server you should be able to include wp_load.php of www.a.com/b into a php file and the create a simple recent posts loop...

assuming this is the structure in your ftp:
- /wp-content/themes/some-theme/index.php

- /wp-content/themes/some-theme/index.php*


<h3><?php _e('Recent Articles', 'your_text_domain'); ?></h3>
    $recentPosts = new WP_Query();
    $recentPosts->query('showposts=5'); // SET AMOUNT OF POSTS TO RETRIVE

<?php while ($recentPosts->have_posts()) : $recentPosts->the_post(); ?>
    <li><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a></li>
<?php endwhile; ?>

i would to know how this worked for you...
so if you try Method b please update us.

Hope this helps,
