I'm looking to setup a data type that allows bidirectional node linking through a property. I feel like something like this might/should exist but don't know what it might be called in Umbraco. In database terms this is known as a "many to many" relationship if that helps the ideas brewing.
Below is a simplified and ideal tree structure. Under the document type "Product", the property "Collections" would be a multinode treepicker containing all the collections for that product. Under the document type "Collection" the property "Products" would also be a multinode treepicker containing all the products assigned to that collection.
Any help, ideas, guidance, documentation, examples would be very much appreciated.
Sounds a bit like an Umbraco feature called "Umbraco Relations": https://umbraco.com/follow-us/blog-archive/2012/12/7/getting-to-know-umbraco-relations/
Disclaimer: I've never used it myself, and I'm not sure the support for it is that great.
Perhaps this would also be of use (though the compatibility report doesn't look that great): https://our.umbraco.org/projects/backoffice-extensions/umbraco-relation-editor/
I think you could also use nupickers property editor to create your bi-directional relations
Thanks for the replies, ultimately we chose the faster route and just chose to associate products to many collections. Then, on a collection page we query the products for those associated with a collection.
Is there any better way to this in Umbraco 8?
