Post Connector

A WordPress plugin that allows you to easily create related posts that don't lag your server!

Post Connector

In WordPress, post types are often related, for instance, you might want to relate recipes to ingredients. But to do so, you’d normally have to use a custom taxonomy. With Post Connector, you can directly relate post types to post types, foregoing all the hassle of having to create loads of custom taxonomies and just allowing you to do what you really want to do.

Premium features

The Pro version of the plugin comes with the following features:

  • Sortable post connections
  • Backwards linking (parent to child AND child to parent)
  • A developer friendly API
  • Priority support

No coding required

Creating links, linking posts and displaying posts in Post Connector can all be done without coding. Stuff you used to need a developer for can now “just” be done by clicking around in your WordPress backend.

Automatically displaying linked posts

Automatically displaying linked posts introduces a new way of displaying linked posts. Next to our widget and shortcode you can now display linked posts by let Post Connector append them to your posts. This new feature prevents the need of editing your theme files allowing you to easily switch themes in the future.

Unlimited links

Unlimited links, in all ways. You can create links in links as many times as you want, no limitations. Whether you want to relate one post to 10 others of a different post type or you want to relate a post to posts in several different post types: it’s all easily done.

Widget & Shortcode

Post Connector includes a widget for displaying linked posts. Of course you can add the widget multiple times, displaying different links and/or different parents. Next to this you can set the widget’s title, choose whether you want the child posts to be clickable and if you would like to display the excerpt for each child.

Post Connector also includes a shortcode for displaying linked posts. This enable you to output specific linked posts anywhere you can type content (e.g. pages) by simply entering the shortcode. Heck, you don’t even to remember that the shortcode is. Just click the Post Connector icon in the editor, set a few settings and click “Insert Shortcode” and you’re done.
