Resources can be linked by Relating them in order to help find and group sets of similar, or mutually relevant resources, not to be confused with Alternative Files.
How to Relate Resources
Relate all resources in a collection
- Add resources to your selected collection, see Adding to a Collection
- From the collection actions list select "Relate all resources in this collection"
You will see a confirmation message to say all resources are now related.
Manually relate resources
Edit each resource individually and place the IDs of the resources you wish to relate into the "Related Resources" box (See Below).
This relate will only apply to the resource you are editing, you will need to do the same for all of the resources that you wish to relate to each other.
Display of related resources
$related_type_show_with_data = array(6);
Instead of being shown in a table, related resource types that are configured to appear alongside metadata can be shown as thumbnails by adding them to the system configuration variable $related_type_thumbnail_view.
$related_type_thumbnail_view = array(6);
To make it easier to upload commonly related resource types from the primary resource, a link will appear alongside the related resources that will set the appropriate resource type and return the user to the current resource once the upload is completed. The following option can be set to disable this.
$related_type_upload_link = false;
