This can be applied to entries of any post type, not just post.

Step 1

Create a custom fields group having a Post type of field.

Tick "Multiple".

Step 2

Step 3

Add a Container and inside it, a Block.

Enable query loop on the Block.

Click the loop icon and set Posts per page to -1.

Add a Post Title element (h3 HTML tag) inside the Block and enable "Link to post".
