Content Type Referencing

Dec 6, 2010 at 7:14 AM

Can a Custom Content Type have a Field where the Type is another Content Type, like a Foreign Key in a table?

Is it just a screen limitation that is preventing the creation of that or is there something in the system design that prevents or doesn't want that to happen?

What is another way I can do this ?

Yes, I'm finishing a topic on 1-n and n-n relationship that should get you started.

it won't be a field, and actually having an item reference field would be very useful but it should be a good starting point.

Excellent, thanks for that. Just post a link when you have one. Thanks again.
