For years I’ve used Scribus posts2posts plugin and I’d like to convert over to the post type relationships offered by toolset.

I have around 1000 posts with varying degree of relationships between post types and ideally don’t want to have to manually re-create the relationships.

With scribus plugin being the previous go to post relationship option for many devs due to lack of similar options, is there a quick way of doing a changeover without manually updating all posts / relationships?

No, because we don’t know how those relationships where stored

We use a new method with custom database tables, and previously we used hidden custom fields

What uses this plugin to create relationships?

If they have an API it may be possible to somehow migrate this relationship with custom code, where you get the existing relations and add new ones with the Toolset API

If you can tell us more about the plugin maybe we can outline the how to steps
