Quick update on the continuing saga of searching across all blogs in a WordPress MU / WordPress MultiSite installation…. after asking about what current plugins did cross-blog search well, I received answers from a number of folks that they hadn’t found any great plugins for doing this. However, the always-helpful Andrea_R pointed out the (“DUH!”) option in her comment that I should contact the author of the no longer maintained “GT Search All Blogs” plugin to see if he would be open to someone else maintaining it.
I did reach out to him and he is no longer maintaining it himself and is perfectly fine having someone else take it on. I’m not sure I’m personally interested in maintaining the plugin… but at the very least I’m going to get a web page up here for it and stick the source code out in Github or somewhere like that so that folks who are interested can get access to it and use it and/or improve it.
Stay tuned… I’m going to try to get that out in the next week or so.
