EE packs a powerful mechanism for relating entries to one another. But when the built-in implementation shows its seams, Playa takes it to the next level.
Set the Ground Rules
Dictate exactly which types of entries are allowed to be related – the channels they must belong to, their categories, authors, and statuses. You can even limit them to just the newest or oldest. And order them by title or date, in ascending or descending order.
Relate Multiple Entries
Playa’s intuitive Drop Panes interface enables you to select as many entries as you wish, in whichever order you like. All from a single field!
…Or Just One
Playa even handles one-to-one relationships with the utmost style.
Its auto-complete input makes searching through thousands of entries simple and painless.
Sifting through hundreds – or even thousands – of entries is a breeze with Playa 3’s live filters. Choose to filter your entries by keywords, weblog, author, category, and status.
Playa fields can also be used within Matrix fields, enabling a plethora of new possibilities.
Take complete control over your template output with Playa’s comprehensive template tags and parameters.
