    The main difficulty is this: the P2P metaboxes also show up when creating a new post. You can’t check these kinds of conditions until after the post is created.

    Hi, thanks for the fast response.

    This is ‘not that of a concern’ (ie. I can live with that) because usually pages will be preset for the user, or in case not, a user-manual can always include ‘use X page template, save your page to enable all boxes.. and continue editing’, at least that’s the case with WPAlchemy (linked above).

    Thanks again!

    I won’t be adding any parameters for this, but I did introduce a new filter, present in the development version (1.3-alpha2).

    Example usage:

    function restrict_p2p_box_display( $show, $post, $ctype ) {
    	if ( 'YOUR_CONNECTION_TYPE' == $ctype->name ) {
    		return ( 'YOUR-TEMPLATE.php' == $post->page_template );
    	}
    
    	return $show;
    }
    
    add_filter( 'p2p_admin_box_show', 'restrict_p2p_box_display', 10, 3 );

    Amazing! works great!
    thanks!

    In the development version (1.3.1-alpha), I changed the parameter order, to be consistent with the other filters. When you update, you’ll have to replace this:

    function restrict_p2p_box_display( $show, $post, $ctype ) {

    with:

    function restrict_p2p_box_display( $show, $ctype, $post ) {

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Hi scribu,

    What if you only want to display the Admin Box for a certain connection type on one specific page? How would I do that? Let’s say I want to connect a post from a certain post-type only from page with ID = 14.

    My code does work, the box only shows up on the specific page, but when I try to connect a post, it doesn’t find any…

    Am I doing something wrong, or is it not possible yet with this function?
    Many thanks as always!

    This should be fixed in the development version (1.4-alpha).

    More info: https://github.com/scribu/wp-posts-to-posts/issues/175

    Yes, fixed! 🙂 Brilliant!
    One thing I noticed though in this alpha version, is that in all the Admin boxes underneath the ‘search’ tab, all the posts are shown with navigation arrows. I believe those were only visible when you searched for something in the previous versions?
    Thanks for your swift action!

    Screenshot please.

    There you go:

    As you can see, below the search type fields, all the possible connections are allready visible. The Admin Boxes use a lot more space like this. I think this wasn’t like that in previous versions?

    Thanks!

    Oh, yeah, that’s an intentional change. If you want to make a case against it, please comment here:

    Ah okay, was wundering about that… No need to make a case against it 🙂
    Thanks!

    Hi scribu,
    The above code doesn’t work anymore after updating from the development 1.4-alpha to the 1.4 version… The connection box on that page only is still there and the connections too, but it doesn’t show any connected posts anymore on the frontend.
    Any ideas? Thanks!
