Recently I started blogging a lot more about life and my simple day job feeding the backyard farm animals. Not mentioning my meth habit. I’ve always been a little internally proud of my writing style even if half the time I lose interest in the middle and quit early.
Rather than maintaining two blocks so that I can share my posts with friends and family that are not necessarily aware of my drug habit, I decided to see whether WordPress was capable of posting to two websites at once. There were a number of plugins available, but none that have worked and about 3 years when I supposed there was some important change for security reasons I’m sure.
In any case I’m about to try a newer one which I was surprised to discover did not have the warning; This plugin has not been tested with the last three versions of WordPress.
Sadly, it appears not to work either. I would think this is one of the easier things to do especially since WordPress allows me to email a blog post. You would think WordPress would be able to talk to WordPress but the evil hackers have ruined it for the rest of us I suppose. I’ll keep looking.
Once I left the WordPress plugin site and used Google instead I found that the key was not to use the word cross post. Apparently there are quite a few sync plugins.
Ironically I can’t test it with this post because I talk about my drug habit and the reason for needing the cross posts. That would make people curious and go searching for this. But it looks like I found one that finally works.
