Pods – Custom Content Types and Fields

Pods – Custom Content Types and Fields | Pods Framework Team

Description

Manage all your custom content needs in one location with the Pods Framework.

  • Create content types including custom post types, custom taxonomies and advanced content types using custom tables (separate from WordPress)
  • Extend and customize content types including posts, pages, categories, tags, users, and media
  • Create custom settings pages easily within seconds
  • Add custom fields to any content type or settings page
  • Show your fields anywhere using our shortcodes, widgets, the code-free Pods Template approach, or our automatic theme integration
  • Create connections between any of your content with relationship fields to keep your content organized

Let Pods help you grow your development skills and manage content beyond the standard WordPress Posts & Pages. Check out our Documentation, Support Forums, and our Live Slack Chat to help you build your dream project with Pods.

Introduction

Content types that evolve with your needs

Create any type of content that you want — small or large — we’ve got you covered. Every content type created with Pods gets all the love it needs to grow up big and strong. You’ll get an easy to use interface that lets you manage custom fields and how your content type will look or function.

Create new content types

With Pods, you can create entirely new content types and settings pages.

  • Custom Post Types – Content types that look and function like Posts and Pages, but in their own separate sections of WordPress
  • Custom Taxonomies – Content types that look and function like Categories and Tags, but in their own separate sections of WordPress
  • Custom Settings Pages – Create custom settings under Settings menu to help organize your site’s custom global settings
  • Advanced Content Types – These are entirely separate from WordPress and function off their own database tables (much like the Drupal CCK)

Extend existing content types

  • Post Types – Customize and create/manage fields for any existing post type — Posts, Pages, and even those created by plugins or themes
