[wp-edu] Sitwide Query for CPTs/Taxonomies

We are a k-8 school system and we use WordPress multisite for each of our buildings. For our administrators to keep track of web usage, we created a page template that forms a loop around switch_to_blog(), which allows us to gather information about each site, which is displayed on a single page. It is a rather large page load, with many different database queries flying around, but it gets the job done.

All you would need to do is to change what happens inside the loop to adjust for your CPTs and Taxonomies.  The end result would be a page long table with a cell for each site… in your case a portfolio.

This would need to go inside your theme's folder, and you will need to create a page, calling this template… then adjust accordingly. - - - -  http://dl.dropbox.com/u/30128463/page-site-info.php

Let me know if this helps - Chris
