but still cant get it to work for me.

{$JOOMLA_ID},29...


is 29 the id of the field to lookup?

I have 2 categories, writers and books. I want each book to have a writer and retrieve the article of writer in the book layout and also each writer list his books.

Can someone help me with this?

Hi Mikhail,

Most important. How do you create the relation between the writers and the books.
You say "categories". Do you mean two (2) different F2C Content Types, one for writers and one for books?
If so did you create a Database Lookup field and in which content type?

Regards,
Patrick
Please read the F2C documentation before asking questions! Thank you if you've done so ;)

Hello and thanks for your fast response.

Yes, I have created 2 different F2C Content Types, one for writers and one for books. On the book type there is a Database Lookup field retrieving all article titles from the Writers category (joomla category where the writers are saved as articles) and the article title is the writer's name. When I echo the {$KEIMENO_WRITER} in template it retrieves the name. But I have no idea how to setup the related articles plugin to retrieve the whole writer content.

Please help me with this
