Use a Post as a Term? (2 posts)

    I'm trying to figure out how to use a custom post type (Ministries) as a tax-term with which I could tag posts of another type (Stories).

    The "Events Manager" plugin does it:
    -- "Location" is a custom post type.
    -- Each "Event" is assigned a "Location", as if "Location" was a taxonomy.
    -- Location pages are a blend of a post and an term-archive, in that they have both content of their own, and list Events that have been assigned to them.

    Has anyone exported this functionality into a code snippet or a plugin? I'm happy to roll up my sleeves and dive in, but there's no sense reinventing the wheel.

    This might also solve the problem you had with this thread where you wanted "Projects" to function like "Locations" do in my above example.

    The reasons I need "Ministries" to actually be posts rather than just tax-terms are:
    A) So "Ministries" can have lots of descriptive content fields of their own (not just "Description").
    B) So that "Ministries" can have taxonomy terms applied to them (i.e. "City", "Ministry Type").
