Field/widget for Archetypes. UI for "back-references" in a relationship.
References in Archetypes go in a direction: if you have a ReferenceField on the content type Professor, the professor "points to" the course (and one usually names that relationship, like "professor_teaches_course". The courses show up on the Professor view screen, and the reference can be edited from the Professor form.
This product adds a new field and widget for the "back-reference" from Course to Professor. This allows you to add a BackReference field to the Course type, so that on the Course view, you'll see the professors for that course, and on the course edit form, you can select which professors have a reference to this course.
If you generate your Archetype content product with ArchGenXML, you can have these BackReference fields created for you automatically with the commandline option --backreferences-support=yes
In this case, of course, you'll need to install this product.
