    It's probably the most potent plugin I've used with WordPress. It almost made me feel a real developer :)

    The ability to relate custom post types directly from the UI is awesome and lets you create many distinct uses for your sites. One-to-many and many-to-many relationships will give you alot to work on.

    The UI and workflow could use a little polish but, nevertheless, it saves you a lot of time and enables non-coders to achieve great results.

    I think the closest I found to this plugin was Pods, but Pods uses it's own nomenclature, and it got me confused with new terms (Pods calls content types to custom post types, custom fields and custom taxonomies, which they are, but new terms are dispensable even if the WordPress original terms are bad).

    Thanks for checking out Pods, glad you ended up finding a solution that fit your needs best.

    We offer more than just Custom Post Types in Pods, that's why we call what we do "Custom Content Types", which covers the ability to create Custom Post Types, Custom Taxonomies, Custom Settings Pages, or Advanced Content Types, plus the ability to extend existing Post Types, Taxonomies, Media, Users, and Comments w/ additional fields.

    We're open to any further feedback you have that could help future users understand things better.

    Thanks Scott. Clarification was indeed necessary.

    That reminds me I have to take Pods for another ride, one of this days…

    No problem at all, open to any/all ideas you have on how to make Pods better if you do end up on the Pods train in the future. If docs is one of them, we've got 210+ doc pages about to launch with our new site revamp.

    Wow, docs is definitely an awaited “addon”. Thanks!
