I’m looking for some input/feedback/criticism on a sort of stream of consciousness I have going right now:
I have a custom post type: “Organizations”. I made some custom fields for it like mission statement, logo, address, etc. Some of these organizations have “children organizations”, like a local chapter or post of the American Legion for example.
I’m thinking of including a custom field denoting whether or not said organization is a parent or child organization, and if it is a child, then you select it’s parent. That seems fairly straight-forward, however…
On the single page for a child organization, how would I—or would I be able to—include the name or the logo of the parent organization?
It would be pretty straight-forward in an MVC setting like CakePHP or Ruby on Rails, but I don’t really understand how to do something like this in WordPress with ACF.
I wouldn’t use ACF. This is something that is built into WP. I would set up my post type as hierarchical and support 'page-attributes' Then when creating a new post you just select the parent post. The it is a fairly simple to get the pages parent post and get the custom fields from it.
I would also create different fields for parent and child paged if I did not want the client to put a logo on a child page.
