Backlinks via taxonomies?


#1

Hi all!

Forgive me if this has been covered before, but a couple of us have been trying to setup some relationships between some content. Taxonomies seemed like the way to do it, but we feel like we’re in a rabbit hole and aren’t even sure we’re looking at the right thing.

Here is the situation:

  • We have a role type, this is a role in a team.
  • We have a skill type, this is a skill someone could have.
  • We want to be able to specify what roles each skill is applicable to, in the front matter for skills only.
  • When rendering a single role, we want to show the skills that are relevant to it.
  • When rendering a single skill, we want to show all the roles we expect to have it.

Is this possible, or do we have specify the forward and backward links in both places?

Cheers,
Nathan

Hmm, I have not tried this but, it seems like more of a thing you’d want to use data for. Did you take a look at: https://gohugo.io/templates/data-templates/#the-data-folder
