CMS: Referencing Multiple Items in One Collection Field

1 min read
A reference field creates a connection between an item in one collection and an item in a different collection. A multiple items reference field is similar to a reference field, except it allows you to reference more than one item from another Collection.

Multiple item reference fields create a two-way connection between collections. This means that when you create a multiple-item reference field in collection A that points to collection B, a corresponding multiple-item reference field is automatically created in collection B that points to collection A. 

To create a multi-reference field:

  1. Go to CMS in your site's dashboard.
  2. Click the relevant collection.
  3. Click the Add icon to create a new field.
  4. Select Reference or Multi-Reference as the Field Type.
  5. Enter a Field Name
  6. Select which collection you want to reference to under Referenced Collection.
  7. Click Save
