This is probably beyond support. But how does one populate the intermediary post title with parent-child title?
Parent = Track
Inter = track-client
Child = Client.
I've seen some threads on this but don't understand.

I assume we are talking about this case:
You are going to populate the intermediary post title with parent post titles automatically.

If it is, there isn't such kind of built-in feature within Toolset plugins, you will consider custom codes, for example:
1) Use action hook save_post to trigger a PHP function:
2) Get related post information:
3)and update the post title to what you want.

But in most cases, you don't need to setup the intermediary post title, and it is possible to display the related parent post titles in a single intermediary post, this can be done without any custom codes, see our document:

For your reference.


Thank you Luo,

I know how to display fields from related posts. What I really need is for the title of the intermediary to be populated from the parent child titles.
Thank you for the links.
I guess I have to hire a developer to implement this for me?
Thank you,
