I have need of exposing a blog that exists in a sub site, to the parent site home page. I need to show the blog on the parent site just the same as it appears on thechild blog site home page. SInce there is no blog web part or list type that i can create in the parent site and i can't save the current Post (blog) list as a template to import, i must expose the blog in the parrent through different means. I have tried:
RSS VIEWER - The RSS webpart does not support authenticated feeds.
Content Query web part - just shows a single line and is not acceptable to the boss
Content Editor web part- just is code and wont render
Bamboo list rollup webpart - looks as bad if not worse than the content query

Help Please. I need a no custom code solution. I have SP designer to work with and any tools in SharePoint but i don't have Visual Studio.

You can customize the Content Query WebPart to display as per your requirement. Refer the followng reference for the same.

that looks good but its not working for this type of list. There are no icons showing for the xslt styles. the post list does not act like any other list.

ok, so here is what i have so far and it's ok~
I used SharePoint designer to isolate the blog section on the bolg home page (child site).
then i had to remove the <form> tags (SharePoint page viewer didn't like these)
Then i used SharePoint Designer to create a web pages out of the parts i needed to bring up to the parent site. So there is a page for the webpart from the blog site and a page created for the Admin tasks to display in the parent site. this solution seems to work well so far but i welcome a better way if there is one to deal with this exact type of element since it doesnt act like the normal element in SharePoint.
