Say you have some custom post type. Call it
Now say in Gutenberg, you want to either
a. Insert some data into a
my_type post from an existing instance of
another_type where the inserted block has template/styling
b. Insert some data into
my_type that will create the custom
another_type post instance.
What is the most sensible methodology? You can imagine doing this with a forum post. In Gutenberg you want to insert some reusable block with styling that displays certain forum topic data. Or you want to insert a block that creates the forum topic in the first place.
As it is now, I am just creating the forum topic then using a shortcode with topic id, but can't help but wonder if there is a better way?
