Playa Documentation

Playa Overview

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.

Included in the MEGA PACK

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.

Live Filters

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.

Matrix Integration

Playa fields can also be used within Matrix fields, enabling a plethora of new possibilities.

Powerful Templating

Take complete control over your template output with Playa’s comprehensive template tags and parameters.
