I'm fairly new to Drupal. But I'm trying to learn.
What I'm try to accomplish is have a variable in a certain node type (artist) and I want to access this variable in another node type (news). Is this possible?
Let's say I have two content types, Artists and News. The artist node will have (at some point) related pictures, songs, and news. But at default it does not have any. So I wanted a variable that acts like a flag that if there are any related pictures the flag is changed. In the news node, I have tags that point to an artist if the news is related to him/her, then I'll show the same related songs, pictures of the same tagged artist. I want the flag variable as a checker if there are truly related songs/pictures. In that way I'll just use the flag and before I query the related pictures/songs
