Custom Post Type UI
[resolved] Feature suggestion: Add "posts list" as a custom field type (2 posts)

    First of all, thanks for the Types and Views plugin.

    I am writing here to suggest a feature to Types and Views. Forgive me if this is not the proper place to ask.

    I would like to add an "Available field" as Custom post type. Currently there are many options such as "Checkbox, Radio, WYSIWYG, Skype, Phone, Email, File, Single line, Image...". I suggest adding "Post list".

    When an editor user is adding a new post of the custom post type which has as a field "Post list", he/she could choose a list of posts that would be presented (using Views) as a list of the post titles (or showing an excerpt or...)

    Going even further, the list of posts that is shown to the editor could be filtered by Types in order to show only posts with a particular "post type" or posts that belong to a particular label or category.

    I believe this would extend Types and Views to a new level of possibilities improving even more the user experience.

    Thanks for taking it into consideration, and I hope you like the idea.

    Wow! Two days and you come up with "parent/child post relationships"!!

    I feel this is quite close to what I asked for :-)

    The parent/child implementation has a big limitation:
    A child post can only have one parent.

    Can a book have only one author?

    Anyway, I like your implementation a lot!
