For performance reasons the number of posts is limited to a user configurable amount, and the blog itself can be made indexable by search engines or not.

  2. Login as a site administrator and go to Super Admin->Sitewide Tags.
    1. “Tags blog” defaults to “tags” but can be anything. This is the blog where your sitewide posts will live. It will be created if it doesn’t exist.
    2. Check “Post to main blog” to use your main blog as the tags blog.
    3. “Max posts” defaults to 5000. Older posts will be deleted if this threshold is broken.

    5. “Privacy” defaults to public, pages can be indexed by search engines.
    6. When “Privacy” is not public, check “Non-Public Blogs” to include blogs not indexed by search engines.

    8. “Populate Posts” allows you to fill in posts from an existing blog.

I’ve been using this plugin since I inherited our HUGE Multisite install way back when it was WordPress Mu 2.2, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future!

It’s amazing, 3 years since last update and it still works! Don’t know what I will do when it breaks. This is crucial for our network. It’s fair as well: it just puts the most recent (x) posts into the main blog.

When populating posts without deactivating plugins, site is created and posts are populated. But Fatal error: Cannot use object of type WP_Error as array in C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-content\plugins\wordpress-mu-sitewide-tags\sitewide-tags.php on line 195. Just mentioning it here. But I am giving a 5 star for this superb plugin!
