I went through some documentation such as this one https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/bidirectional-relationships since I am not too good in coding, I am not sure if this is what I need to achieve what I am trying to setup on my website and need some guidelines to reach my objectives.
I have 2 post types:
1. Bid Requests
2. Bid Proposals
I created a bidrectional relationship between each of these post types:
bid_request_related_bid_proposal – This field is a relationship field but hidden and is to link a bid proposals to the bid request.
bid_proposal_related_bid_request – This field is a relationship field but hidden and is to link a bid request to bid proposals.
Now let me try to better explain what I am trying to achieve.
A user will submit a bid request with his requirements etc. On this same bid request post single page, I will add a form for other users to submit bid proposals for the current bid request post.
Meaning that, each submitted bid proposal will be a custom post and such custom post should automatically be added as relationship to the current bid request post (post ID).
I don’t want users to need to search/select the bid request when submitting their bid proposals but the bid proposal to be automatically connected as a relationship posts through the relationship fields mentioned above.
Hope that make sense!
