I am using this page to see the PARENT posts for my Newsletters:
On this page, I can see all the Parent posts, and I should be able to click on the VIEW ISSUE link which passes a URL parameter to another page where I have a view that shows the CHILDREN for that post.
The URL passes fine - for example:
But even though it specifies to only shows posts that are children of 13674, it shows the same items as if the URL says 13643.
Can you help me figure out how to set up my filter so that I only see the child posts for one parent at a time?
==> Scroll to the Template of this view editor, and change the value of the <td></td> item
(wehre your link to the child item should appear)
to display your previously created Child View like this (example):
5. On a page where you want to display the table with the paren posts that include the link to the child posts, include the lastly created view
6. On the front end you’ll now have something like here: hidden link
7. The last item on the right will be a Title of the according child posts, linked to the child post
I tested this on my local install and it correctly returned the Chid Post content according to the loop.
If this does not work accurately on your install, can you please share a screenshot of your view(s)?
Sometimes screenshots illustrating what you are doing may go a long way to clarify what words fail to transmit, so if you like, make use of "upload an image" below the comment area.
Please let me know if you have further questions regarding the issue mentioned in this Thread
and let me know if the above solution works for you, I look forward to your reply!
I've done the first two things (set up customs posts with a Parent/Child relationship and adding a couple of parent posts, each with some child posts.)
My Parent type is "Newsletters" and just has the info about which ISSUE of the newsletter (currently April and July). My Child type is "News Items" and is the individual articles that belong to particular issues.
Then I created a complicated view (at least, complicated for me!) that shows the issue custom field from a particular parent ("April 2015") - and then calls a couple of different views to show the child posts (separating them into a left column and right column view).
