Efficient many-to-many connections between posts, pages, custom post types, users.
Took me about 5 minutes to learn how to use and easily saved me 10 hours of custom coding on the first project alone.
Full of options.
Just perfect for theme developers !
Finally a plugin well written and really, really, really useful.
T H A N K S.
You need to write at least a little bit php. This isn't a plugin which does all the work for you, but it does what it should be and this is extremly useful.
Posts To Posts is easily in my top five best plugins, if it's not my number one. It's extremely flexible and easy to setup, follows all WordPress best practices, works like a charm and has a number of features out of the box.
I agree with others that this should be part of the wordpress core. I found it very surprising that posts can not be related to one another especially with the onset of custom posts and you get in all sorts of a muddle creating hacks and custom queries with just taxonomies. I like this plugin as the admin user interface is great. Good documentation and good support from the plugin author.
Compared to the alternatives ( I have not really tried them much ), I like this one because it sticks to relational database terminology and you can set rules for the allowed relationships which can be reflected in the admin boxes. e.g. only allow many to one relationships with posts that have a certain tag.
I also think it is a good thing that there is no attempt to create a user interface for defining the relationships. If you begin by creating the relationships in your functions.php, you quickly see how to further customise it to your exact needs.
Thinking how it could be improved? Maybe some options to allow "quick edit" to make connections. Maybe some options for "bulk-actions" for making connections.
Thanks to the author
Just heard about your plugin on WordSesh and it looks great, I normally use ACF but would much rather use this, only thing is I can't see an option for image fields, am I missing this or does this functionality not currently exist?
Also are you able to add metaboxes and additional fields to taxonomies?
Many thanks and great work.
We've used this plugin on several sites to relate many custom post types together. It is great to find a plugin that has built exactly what is needed in a very flexible way.
This plugin allows developers to create direct relationships between post types, a feature that WordPress has desperately needed as long it's been used as a CMS.
This is one of those critical pieces of kit that all developers should automatically turn to when developing new WordPress projects, and the fact that it hasn't been incorporated into WordPress core isn't just shocking, it's downright criminal.
