    Hi all,

    A friend just recommended this plug-in to me, but after messing with it for quite a while I'm not completely understanding how to create the relationships that I want.

    Here is the relationship structure that I would like to create:

    Portfolio (would create this main directory: http://www.mywebsite.com/portfolio)
    — Print (category of portfolio http://www.mywebsite.com/portfolio/print)
    — — brochure sample (/print/brochure-sample)
    — — direct mail sample (/print/direct-mail-sample)
    — — catalog sample
    — Web (category of portfolio http://www.mywebsite.com/portfolio/web)
    — — vacation rental website
    — — sporting good product website
    — — photography website
    — Illustration (category of portfolio http://www.mywebsite.com/portfolio/illustration)
    — — shoe illustration
    — — clothing illustration
    — — architectural rendering

    I'm confused as to where to start. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Hi. Not sure if you still want some help but here you go:

    CPT-onomies work the same was as regular WordPress taxonomies so you assign CPT-onomy relationships just as you would assign taxonomy relationships.

    Have you ever used a WordPress taxonomy before? Have you ever assigned a "tag" or a "category" to a regular WordPress post? Those are taxonomies. With a CPT-onomy, the custom post type post titles are the terms so you would assign them to other custom post type post just like you would assign a "tag" or a "category" to a post.

    Let me know if you need more help.
