I am a channel called products

I need to relate a product to other products

I edit the product say PRODUCT 1 and assign 5 other products to be related to that product PRODUCT 2 PRODUCT 3 PRODUCT 4 PRODUCT 5 PRODUCT 6

Is it possible that when I go to edit one of the related products PRODUCT 2 that its know its related to PRODUCT 1 and it will be displayed/selected in the playa field automatically?


  • It sounds to me like you need a higher level of abstraction - possibly categories. Would it make sense to categorise your products into groups? Jun 30, 2014 at 17:19
  • Its fine I think we can manage with the standard multi select field in the publish section. Regarding categories I dont think this will work as we are relating products to a products similar to upsell, cross sell, related products on an e-commerce site

1 Answer 1


What you're describing is reverse relationships. Playa has no such field for the publish page, but it is possible to get the reverse relationship in the templates with the {exp:playa:parents} tag.
