One of my projects is an authority site. I want the primary site to gather it's content from a network of sites. Each site could possibly have a different theme because the content source and type will vary. Each site will likely be managed by a different person, likely overseas.
WHAT I NEED:
I want the design and functionality of The Daily Theme because its primary purpose is to mash-up the content from various sources but I need the network features of Network or Blogs MU.
I'm not quite sure what the difference is between Network, MU and BuddyPress but for this project I'm not interested in the membership features.
I can't tell what the difference is between the "Network" theme and the "Blogs MU" theme. They seem to be the same thing, or at least solving the same problem. I can't figure out the tradeoff. Can I do the same as those using The Daily Theme?
