    I was wondering if it were possible to link to your Wordpress data from another site? Twitter offer up widgets to display content - I was wondering if Wordpress offer something similar.. if you want to visualize what I mean visit http://twitter.com/downloads

    Thanks.

    Hi shoffman,

    Yup you can. WordPress uses an XML-RPC interface. So you could pull data in via PHP on your site to say pull back the last 4 postings, and their comments. Or you could create a Windows Vista, Win 7, or OS X Gadget/Dashboard to display them. (or a Adobe Air app).

    I have an example in PHP and Adobe Air. I could put together a Windows Gadget or OS X Dashboard widget tonight (I'd like to have one anyways) if you like those better. TweetDeck and the like are Adobe Air applications.

    Thanks for the offer - but I'm going in a different direction now...

    don't suppose you know where the get_settings() function is setup? - I'm trying to set up one wordpress blog/data on two completely different sites, and use different themes on each - I have it mostly set up, but all the links in the sidebar etc point to the url set in the wp_options mysql table. i have added an extra entry in that table with the value of the second web sites url, but I'd like to see the set_settings() function all the same to see what it does - right now I'm just assuming it pulls information from the wp_options table based on what you send it - e.g. get_settings('siteurl') returns the url etc...
