Yoast is a leading Website Optimization company. They offer various software, plugins and services and help you to optimize their website. So they have release this new wordpress plugin in the name “Post Connector Plugin”.
So let’s see a complete review of this plugin.
What will you do to connect between 2 related posts or pages? Use taxonomies everytime?
How many can use without annoying the users?? Maximum 10?
No Solution? I have ONE SOLUTION – Post Connector Plugin.
What is Post Connector Plugin?
A wordpress plugin that allows you to create relationships between posts.
Simply, Post Connector Plugin is a plugin used to connect related posts without creating Taxonomies for everything
Also post connector helps you to connect a post based on multiple categories and sub-categories.
How does Post Connector Plugin work?
This is the plugin to classify between posts. Very easily! Very differently!
Let me explain briefly..
Direct Example :
Lets take that you are going to create a website for the students and teachers in a particular school.
And Each student or teacher profile will be a POST in wordpress.
Now you have to classify them based on various criteria in your pages.
For example :
1. Teachers teaching for Grade 7.
2. Students from Grade 10.
But this easy right, you can simply do it by any Taxonomy. By adding a Tag called 7th grade or Teachers.
WHY WOULD YOU NEED THIS PLUGIN?
3. Teachers teaching Chemistry for 7th grade.
Now you would have to run for lots of taxonomies, 7th-grade-chemistry and more and more.
But what if there is a plugin, where you can just sort out all the posts based on the classification.
Just clicking new divisions, creating new sub-divisions and more. And at last, sorting the posts into the posts.
Now you can list it anywhere – Pages, Widgets and Shortcodes.
Simple.. Isn’t it?
1. Easy Classification
Easy classification of posts based on various classes and criteria. No more ugly taxonomies and tags occupying all the page in a post. All you have to do is to create a division and add posts under them.
When classifying them under a particular relationship, you can decide
1. Name of the relationship
2. Slug URL
3. Parent Post (Based on which relationship is created)
4. Child Post
2. No Ugly Taxonomies
More than 5 or 6 tags for a wordpress post will look very ugly and amateur. Imagine the appearance of the post with more than 10 taxonomies.
Moreover your Tags and Categories page will be indexed as duplicate pages of the post in the Search Engines. Too much of tags and categories will increase the risk.
Now Post Connector comes as the solution. You connect custom posts without tags or categories.
3. Zero % Coding
Like wordpress itself, this plugin is created to help the non-coders. You will have no part in the coding part of the plugin.
Creating divisions, linking them together, displaying them in widgets or shortcodes everything involves no coding.
4. Drag & Drop Sorting
Have you noticed how difficult the sorting of slides or posts is?? In other plugins?
Sorting them using Order number.
And when you have to alter the order, you have to start from beginning.
But this plugin saves all the work.
All you have to do is Drag ‘n’ Drop them in the order.
5. One Click Widget
This plugin comes with a widget that will help in displaying Post Links.
You can add unlimited widgets displaying same/different parents and posts.
You can set the title you like.
Add the Post Connector links wherever you want – pages/posts.
All in a single click.
You don’t even have to remember what the shortcode is.
All you have to do is
1. Select the SP (Abbreviated for Sub Posts) Icon in the editor.
2. Decide the Title and few settings.
3. Now press “Insert Shortcode”.
4. You are done!!
7. Multi-Lingual Plugin
Post connector comes in multiple languages. For now, the plugin is available in
1. English2. Dutch
4. Spanish and more.

8. Supports WordPress Multisites
Post Connector plugin supports wordpress multi-sites, also known as WordPress Network.
Each wordpress website will have its own version and so will have its own links.
So This plugin has no disadvantages?
