I would like to create a content type that has some unique fields but its other fields are references to other existing nodes (not a parent-child relationship but many to many relationship).
I have looked in entity reference module or field collection? Is there another way of doing this?
For example I have a synthesis report made up of smaller topics. I want this report to have a name and author but then it needs to reference multiple of these smaller topics (which are a content type of their own).
I could maybe make a Taxonomy term for every synthesis report?
