I’m just starting a new wordpress build for a podcast site. This is something like a small network – it’s actually a Podcast with 3 different shows (maybe more in the future). Unfortunately there’s no WordPress Podcast solution out there that is great and supports multiple shows with totally different Title, Description, Artwork, Feed settings etc. – at least none that i like. I basically do like Podlove Publisher but to setup different feed you need to have a multisite installation and basically have different blogs.
So I’ll be going with a subdirectory setup with 4 blogs at all – one “main” blog with all the central information and 3 show blogs with one for each show that will most likely only hold the episode pages, an overview of episodes and maybe one static site.
Additionally i’m probably going to use WP-Types/Toolset to build some views and modify the output in an easy way.
The thing is i want to have the lastest episodes from each of the shows in the main blog – at least on the home page. Unfortunately Toolset Views doesn’t seem to be able to query other blogs than the one it is running on – so no support for switch_to_blog or anything else.
Now I found out that the post indexer plugin could be a good base but i couldn’t find any information yet if there’s something like an interface to wp_query or similar that would allow other plugins that work with custom post types to easily query the indexed posts.
Does anyone have an idea where I could find such information or how this “problem” could be approached? Apart from Toolset… what would normally be the way to query indexed posts from the theme?
