I have a content type (named "Category") and another content type ("Article"). I want to "Category" nodes have similar functionality as taxonomy term in a way of option to assign "article" nodes to them and display list of "article" nodes teasers on the "Category" page too.

For example: Lets say I have "Category" node named "People". And several "Article" nodes ("Joe", "Frank", "Peter") somehow (part of my question) assigned to "People". When I go to "People" page, I want to see this node content and below also teasers of all assigned "Article" nodes. And I want this not only for a specific node, but for all nodes of content type "Category". How to attain this? Maybe something like taxonomy terms view, but adapted to nodes instead of taxonomy terms?

I know it's easy with taxonomy, but I want to avoid that way - because of buggy taxonomy menu and other things. Thanks

You can use Entity Reference module to create relations between the nodes you need.


And it works well with Views (for both forward and backward references)

  • Thanks for a quick response! :) Entity reference module - ok, i know what you mean. But the Views configuration is the hard part. 1) I want to views uses URL the same way as taxonomy terms ( = whenever is any node "Category" display, then show this view) 2) How to configure Views to display page as I wrote above Mar 4, 2016 at 12:10
  • There are plenty tutorials available on this. Search Youtube and Vimeo. Mar 4, 2016 at 12:40
