Softmixt Relations

Description

A simple way to add related posts to another post.

You can easily change the public view by using this filter : SFT_related_item_content filter.

<?php

add_filter (
    'SFT_related_item_content' ,
    /**
     * $itm_container : The current view of related posts .
     * $connected_relations : Array with all related post items ID's .
     * $atts : Short code attributes.
     */
    function ( $itm_container , $connected_relations , $atts )
    {

        // The current post id.
        $post_id = $atts[ 'post_id' ];

        // Parent related items container element (set on short code).
        $container               = $atts[ 'container' ];

        // Parent related items container class element (set on short code).
        $container_class         = $atts[ 'container_class' ];

        // Related item container element (set on short code).
        $item_container          = $atts[ 'item_container' ];

        // Related item container title element (set on short code).
        $item_title_container          = $atts[ 'item_title_container' ];

        // Related item container class element (set on short code).
        $item_container_class    = $atts[ 'item_container_class' ];

        // Related item show title (set on short code as string "true" or "false").
        $item_show_title         = $atts[ 'item_show_title' ];

        // Related item show date (set on short code as string "true" or "false").
        $item_show_date          = $atts[ 'item_show_date' ];

        // Related item show author (set on short code as string "true" or "false").
        $item_show_author        = $atts[ 'item_show_author' ];

        // Related item show feature image (set on short code as string "true" or "false").
        $item_show_feature_image = $atts[ 'item_show_feature_image' ];

        // Related item show excerpt image (set on short code as string "true" or "false").
        $item_show_excerpt       = $atts[ 'item_show_excerpt' ];

        // Related item show content image (set on short code as string "true" or "false").
        $item_show_content       = $atts[ 'item_show_content' ];

        // Post related taxonomies container element (set on short code)
        $item_terms_container       = $atts['item_terms_container'];

        // Post related taxonomies container class element (set on short code).
        $item_terms_container_class = $atts['item_terms_container_class'];

        // Post related taxonomy term item container element (set on short code)
        $item_term_container        = $atts['item_term_container'];

        // Post related taxonomy term item container class element (set on short code).
        $item_term_container_class  = $atts['item_term_container_class'];

        // you can overwrite  post related item view here ...

        return $itm_container;

  • If you have a lot of post items or connections you can easily filter by name or post type.

  • You can insert your connection into your post content by using the tinyMCE new button.

  • When you click on tinyMCE connections button you will bring up a new popup where you can set : "Container element", "Custom container class", "Item container element", "Item container title element", "Custom class item", "Show post meta"

  • After tinyMCE modal submitted , an a "shortcode" automatically is created and is inserted into the WP Content.
