LoopBuddy looks amazing!  I am putting together a site for a school where some of the sections are network sites under a multisite install.  Does LoopBuddy work well with multistie?

Hi James, :)

Thanks for posting this and welcome to the forums. LoopBuddy works well with Multisites, though at this time it has to be activated individually on each site instead of a Network Activate usage.

We plan to have such support (one single Network Activate) in one of the upcoming updates. I hope that explains it. Please let me know.

That would be a welcome addition!

Will this update allow to query/show posts from subsites in the parent site?

Hi Richard, :)

Thanks for the follow-up. At this point, I think the feature will allow you to have LoopBuddy working on the entire Multisite like a standard Network Activate plugin, without the sharing of Queries/Layouts option.

Could you tell me more about the allowing of Query/"show posts" from subsites in the parent site? Once I know more, I may be able to add that as a feature request.

A multisite typically consist of a main/parent site and several subsites. So what I mean, is the ability to (from within LB on the main site) query posts from multiple subsites and be able to display these posts combined into a page on the main site. In essence, to create a newsportal gathered from posts in subsites.

Hope you understand what I'm trying to say :)
