Linking posts to each other is quite a hassle in WordPress, especially if they are of different post types. Of course you can get creative by using some sort of ‘cross post type taxonomy’, but these kind of solution usually come with a manual. Not to mention the lack of usability for you or your clients.
To solve this issue and offer a true user friendly solution that can be used in small to large websites, I’ve created a plugin called Sub Posts. With Sub Posts you can link posts to each other in just a few minutes, using it’s simple and intuitive interface.
Sub Posts comes with a widget and shortcode to display the created links on your website. From creating the links to displaying the linked posts, everything can be done without programming a single line of code.
But I said that Sub Posts can be used in small and large websites, and you simply can’t solve everything with shortcodes or widgets. Well don’t worry, that’s where the built in API comes in. The API contains methods to retrieve links based on arguments as well as methods to create links programmatically.
I understand the power of being able to deliver your client a WordPress solution in it’s native language. That’s why Sub Posts is available in English, Dutch and German at the moment, and will be translated into many more languages.
More information and a video demonstrating the plugin can be found at the Sub Posts website: www.subposts.com
Do you think this plugin will help you in future WordPress websites? Are you missing something in the plugin? Would you like to help translate this plugin in your native language? I’de love to hear your feedback on this.
