    Hello I'm just wondering when we're going to see the ability to related a dynamic item to itself in a hierarchical way. This forum: http://www.sitefinity.com/developer-network/forums/upcoming-features/preview-ability-to-relate-content-to-other-content-items mentions that it is going to be added in 7.1 and it's still not available in 7.2. I know it's not a trivial thing but would make the module builder so much more useful. Is there any update on when this might see the light of day?

    Hi Kalvin,

    Since Sitefinity 7.0 it is possible to relate dynamic modules to a dynamic module of the same type. For example, if you have a dynamic module titled Articles, you can add a Related Data custom field to the Articles module and then select the custom related field to be of type Articles. This way when you create an Article, you will be able to select related articles to this article and display the related articles on the frontend.

    I have recorded a short video for your convenience demonstrating the above steps which I think you will find useful.

    You may also take a look at the following article for more details about content relations in Sitefinity.

    If this is not the behavior you would like to achieve, can you please provide some more details about the exact use case scenario in order to be able to further help you?

    Thanks for the response. Unfortunately, the key is having it hierarchical in nature. The video you made shows how to relate the same item to itself but there's no parent/child relationship. Like I mentioned below, the earlier thread said that this was something that was coming in 7.0 but it still hasn't shown up. Can you give me an update and an eta on when we will be able to do true parent child relationships?

    While I appreciate you logging this, it was already noted that it was going to be added back in Sitefinity 7.1. My question was when is it going to be finished. Can you please update me on that. Thanks.
