Full list of features
In WordPress, post types are often related, for instance, you might want to relate recipes to ingredients. But to do so, you’d normally have to use a custom taxonomy. With Post Connector (formerly known as “Sub Posts”), you can directly relate post types to post types, foregoing all the hassle of having to create loads of custom taxonomies and just allowing you to do what you really want to do.
No coding required
Creating links, linking posts and displaying posts in Post Connector can all be done without coding. Stuff you used to need a developer for can now “just” be done by clicking around in your WordPress backend.
You can link posts both ways, so instead of only linking from parent to child you can now also link from child to parent. Backwards linking is a connection option, allowing you to enable it per connection. Both parent to child and child to parent links can be automatically displayed under posts.
Automatically displaying linked posts
Automatically displaying linked posts introduces a new way of displaying linked posts. Next to our widget and shortcode you can now display linked posts by let Post Connector append them to your posts. This new feature prevents the need of editing your theme files allowing you to easily switch themes in the future.
Unlimited links, in all ways. You can create links in links as many times as you want, no limitations. Whether you want to relate one post to 10 others of a different post type or you want to relate a post to posts in several different post types: it’s all easily done.
Widget & Shortcode
Post Connector includes a widget for displaying linked posts. Of course you can add the widget multiple times, displaying different links and/or different parents. Next to this you can set the widget’s title, choose whether you want the child posts to be clickable and if you would like to display the excerpt for each child.
Post Connector also includes a shortcode for displaying linked posts. This enable you to output specific linked posts anywhere you can type content (e.g. pages) by simply entering the shortcode. Heck, you don’t even to remember that the shortcode is. Just click the Post Connector icon in the editor, set a few settings and click “Insert Shortcode” and you’re done.
Post Connector can be updated just as any other plugin through the WordPress plugin page. When you purchase Post Connector you will get a license key, simply activate this key in the Post Connector license screen and you’re ready to receive updates.

Drag’n’drop child sorting
Ever tried sorting items in WordPress? It’s dreadful, you have to manually apply a sort order number to each post in a list.
Not in Post Connector though: you can sort items simply by dragging them to the desired position, the AJAX sorter will apply the new order on the fly.
Post Connector is available in English, Dutch, German and Spanish and soon many more languages. Post Connector will automatically select the correct language based on your WordPress installation language.
Post Connector is WordPress Network / Multisite compatible. Each site will have its own version of Post Connector and thus have it own links.
Powerful developer API
You don’t have to be a developer to use Post Connector, but if you are, you can easily implement it in your theme or plugin by using its incredibly powerful API.
