    Hi!
    This is a dream long dreamt and now I have discovered this marvellous plugin I don’t want to miss the chance to ask.
    There is something I always need in my websites and it’s the fact of treating a post (CPT) as a taxonomy. What I do at the end is to create a Taxonomy (with CPT-IU) of the same name of the post and relate just with that one. So when there are other posts that has to be related with that “family of posts” the are chosen via the term.
    The closest thing is https://wordpress.org/plugins/cpt-onomies/ but it hasn’t been updated for years.
    Do you think there is a way to do this with ACF Extended?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hello,

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Well, you could use the Bidirectional Setting which let you setup post-to-post, post-to-user, post-to-term, or term-to-term etc… Bidirectional relationship.

    Although Post/User/Term metadata are quite different from taxonomy terms relationship, this is the closest feature which achieve something similar to what you’re looking for.

    Also note that ACF Extended let you create, export and import Custom Post Types & Custom Taxonomies using builtin modules.

    Hope it helps!

    Have a nice day!

    Regards.
