    My wordpress website solution -still in testing phase not online yet- consists of different wordpress installations as I need different blogs.

    On my main homepage I would like to show different sliders, one underneath the other, showing the content of my different blogs.

    How can I do this? I’m not a programming hero but I tend to find my way in php and html.

    Your help is grately appreciated.

    showing the content of my different blogs

    Is that content all located within a single MYSQL database, or do you have one database for each blog?

    The content is all located within a single MYSQL database (but in different tables as a new installation creates new tables).

    I gave it some thougt after reading your question.

    Does it mean I will have to copy/paste a function, modify the query to point to the right table and copy paste some html to add my second (and third, and…) slider on the home page? Correct me if I’m wrong and thank you for guiding me to find the right files and code to edit.

    Well, I’m far from a PHP expert and my MYSQL knowledge is nil, but it seemed that if the data was in separate databases this could difficult to impossible.

    Something like this. You’ll have to figure out a way to get to the right table in the database.

    It seems to me like you are trying to create something like those walls of televisions you see in American newsrooms, with each one showing a different channel. I hope you can pull this off somehow, because it sounds very, very cool. But you will probably have to visit the support pages in the WP Codex, as well as some other forums for PHP and MYSQL help. I don’t know that you will be able to find all the help you need here, as this sounds like some heavy coding.

    Keep us informed,
