I have just purchased the toolset so I apologize if I am just overlooking this functionality. I'm creating a site that showcases music festivals and using the parent child relationship to add the performers of each festival as children of the festival itself. This is really nice because I can add the artist, the artist music genre, the artist ASIN number, etc all to the festival information. But what I'm realizing is I'm going to be adding the same artist over and over to alot of festivals. I think what I'm looking for is the ability to have my "Add Artist" button actually be a "look up" that searches the existing artist and lets you select and link that artist post with this festival. (obviously having the ability to create a new artist if the one your looking for has not been created). Hopefully that all makes since. Any advice or pointing in the right direction would be appreciated. THANKS.
p.s. This plugin is already the most useful, most benefiting plugin I have ever come across, excellent work!


Hello Jonathan,

better use taxonomies for artists etc..
Then you can choose from most popular etc..

Hope this helps
