Tying posts together (4 posts)

    So I am trying to build a music website where a lot of music related articles will be going up.
    The main content concentration though is events, event reviews and event galleries.

    So say a particular band performs on a day.
    When I click on this event on my front page it should show me the event details such as time, venue, entry, etc. This I am already handling using 'The Events Calendar' plugin.
    Now at some point in the future I want add a event-review related to this event. Also I want to add a gallery with lots of photographs(say 20-30 pics) of that event.

    So the event, the review, and the gallery all need to be separate posts in wordpress but I want to somehow tie them together so its easy identify in the admin page at the same time display the associated links on the respective pages.
    They could be tied together saying a common id, or say a band name or something... iono.

    Hi Myth_Pharoah,

    Probably the easiest way to tie them together would be to tag theme with the band name. You could also simply update the post with the review and the images if you wanted to keep it in one post.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi ChristiNi,

    Can you please elaborate on it?

    I have a similar Requirement. I have 3 sections:
    a. Venues
    b. Events
    c. Galleries.

    I want that when a user visits a Venue section then on each Venue page, a related Event thumbnail and a short description should be displayed.
    Similarly on Event section, for each event the related venue as well as the related Gallery should be displayed.

    Can anyone please suggest me, how do i tie the 3 categories together?

    Hi roshan.alkurn,

    Great question! One of these plugins should help you with that:

    GigPress
    Events
    Eventify
    The Events Calendar

    If those do not work, look into some of the other event plugins in the plugins directory. If you're up to tackling/coding this on your own, you can create a Custom Post Type (e.g. event) along with a Custom Field (venue). When you create each event (assuming it would be a Post) you set it as an Event Post Type and choose it's corresponding venue from the venue custom field. Then you modify the Venues category template so that when you select a specific Venue's page it shows the custom post type event where the venue custom field matches that field.

    You could also look into using something like

    Hope this helps!
