Using WP Types, I would like to add existing posts as children to parent. Currently, we can only create new children in Parent.

This features has already been asked for twice:

In one of them the support team stated: "our developers are working on it.". This back in January 2013.

I'm having a hard time believing it's taken 18 months to code that feature, since essentially it's about adding UI to an existing API call:
$child_posts = types_child_posts(‘room’);
foreach ($child_posts as $child_post) {
echo $child_post->post_title;
echo $child_post->fields['description'];

When will this feature be available?

Hi maximeC ,

Thanks for the feedback, I forward your question to our developers, will feedback if there is any reply


Hi luoy,

Any news from the developers? As you will see in the other posts I listed, a lot of people are looking for that feature, and implementing it would really take WP types to the next level. For developers who know the code this should really be easy (as explained earlier, the API calls are already there, it's just about adding a bit of HTML to create a dropdown list). If you guys haven't decided on how the UI should look like, I would strongly recommend using a combobox as it makes it easy to make a choice when many values are available. See:

Please guys, do yourself a favor and implement that feature, it will have a big positive impact for your customers.
