Node/Post Reference (3 posts)

    So I was wanting to recreate a complex Drupal website in WordPress and I wanted to know if WordPress had a Drupal "node reference" equivalent.

    So for example, if I have a sports website, and I create a "player" post type and a "game" post type, can I reference a player post from a game post. It would basically be a custom meta field that basically has a loop that lists posts from the players post type in a select box and when one is selected it returns its post id so that the game post can draw data from that player post.

    Is this possible? Thanks.

    Hey acondiff,

    I'm in the same situation, and wondering this myself. I'll let you know if I figure it out. Anyone else have ideas? This capacity would really add a lot to WordPress' custom post types.

    Well my business partner has come up with a method using our own custom function. Although this would be amazing if it became a native wordpress function. I'll have to talk to him and see where the function is located at.
