Using the References module (D7 version), implementing a new field in an article content type for node reference was very easy, but now I cannot seem to figure out how to discern the reverse reference. Just as there is a link shown in my article to the node I have selected in the node reference drop down, I am expecting that on the "linked to" article, I should be able to see a link back to the first article. Has anybody done this? My understanding is that it is part of the D7 version of this module.
You can use https://www.drupal.org/project/cer You can then setup the reference both ways so when you add a reference on the first piece of content CER can add the back reference to the other piece of content. Another option is to add a rule which will do this for you but CER is pretty solid when dealing with larger sites.
