Node/Post Reference

  • 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.
