Support » Plugin: ACF Post-2-Post » Support for PostUser Relationships

  • Hi there,
    I love the plugin and use it all over the place. But one thing I do miss: We also want to have bidirectional relationships between a post object and a user object. I tested it and created the custom fields the same way as with post<->post relations, but its not working, so I suppose, it isn’t supported.

    It would be great if you could ad support for that as well.

    Thanks a lot,
    best wishes!

    post <=> user relationships would need an entirely different set of rules since the relationship would be in multiple tables post_meta, user_meta, etc. Then there is the inevitable request for user <=> user, post <=> taxonomy, taxonomy <=> taxonomy. All of these are probably completely possible. Unfortunately though these things are not something I have a great deal of time to add at the moment. Possibly at some time in the future.

    This plugin is on GitHub and I would welcome others contributing to it as long as the scope of what this plugin is meant to do does not creep to far. The main problem here is that once a feature is added to this plugin then it will likely fall on me to maintain that feature, something else I don’t have a lot of time for. As it is, there isn’t really any maintenance required on this plugin since the operation of post objects and relationship fields in ACF is not likely to every change…

    on the other hand, there is gutenburg coming up so all bets could be off.

    Hey, also in the same position. If I had a user/post relationship then this would solve a huge problem I’m having with a project right now.

    I appreciate you’re busy John. Would donations make it more worth while to get user/post relationships in place? Not sure if @pampfelimetten would be up for that?

    Thanks for your feedback! I suppose we could chip in as well, but I completely understand your point of longterm support.
