Posts 2 Posts

Beskrywing

This plugin allows you to create many-to-many relationships between posts of any type: post, page, custom etc. A few example use cases:

  • manually curated lists of related posts
  • post series
  • products connected to retailers
  • etc.

Additionally, you can create many-to-many relationships between posts and users. So, you could also implement:

  • favorite posts of users
  • multiple authors per post
  • etc.

This solves a major problem for me. Wish I’d known about this plugin earlier but better late than never

I’m primarily using ACF + ACF Posts 2 Posts now, but before that the plugin was indispensable for me. The documentation is brilliant and functionality is very rich within the main goal.
