So have you heard about the new Playa Links add-on? It's kind of great, showing you when entry A has selected entry X in its Playa field. But how do you pull the data from entry A into entry X? Is it the same way as pulling it from X to A?

Is this unclear?

    By "pull the data" do you mean "view the linked entries"? Commented Sep 26, 2013 at 12:10
  • No, I mean pull data out of the linked entry and display it. Commented Sep 27, 2013 at 15:08

Playa Links is just a convenience fieldtype for displaying relationships within the EE control panel entry screen.

To actually display your data in your templates, you have to use Playa's field tags or module tags.
