Perfecta para crear contenidos propios e incluso relacionarlos entre si.
Los templates me facilitaron la vida un monton.

Ojala lo sigan mejorando pero por lo que ya trae 5 estrellas.

Great for adding ANY content
By ,

There are a few bugs and feature requests I have noticed after working with Pods on a few projects, but overall, I think this is a solid and powerful plugin. I now use it on every project.

True relational content management
By , for WP 3.9.1

We've used it for numerous clients' websites - with original in-house themes and pre-packaged themes. It's like building a database application in WordPress - what WordPress should be.

Incredible tool
By , for WP 3.9.1

This incredible tool really lets me bend and stretch WP in ways that maybe it shouldn't! The team behind it offer great support and I really do recommend you get it installed :)

Perhaps the best WordPress plugin
By , for WP 3.9.1

I have used pods extensively for several years, and consider it to be one of the most important WordPress plugins. It is reminiscent of CCK for Drupal, and is hugely helpful in making sophisticated, maintainable sites.

If you're an end user who needs out of the box functionality, more specific plugins are probably the way to go. But if you're a developer making none-trivial sites, Pods can be a huge asset.

Pods helps me as a developer to break down the site in to different types of content, and give the site admins the ability to input and maintain their own data easily. I can keep the html and css cleanly separated from the content, so the user never has to worry about it.

It's then possible to change how and where content is used, without having to go back through the whole site. We can also extend existing WordPress structures - adding some extra fields to a user profile for example, or a post.

For developers making custom sites, Pods can let you replace a raft of other plugins. Where you would otherwise have a plugin for many different functions - each with their own peculiarities - now you can simply create a structure in pods, and write some code to display that content. You're not constrained by someone else's implementation, and nor is your site bloated by features you don't need. If you want an audio clip with a geolocation - that's a couple of fields. Want an image with it? Add another field. Don't want a description field or tags? Don't add them. You create the whole thing, but it's a fraction of the development effort that it would be doing it from scratch.

Pods is not perfect by any means - I have had plenty of frustrating moments. Often it seems to pull huge data structures when I just want the bare minimum, etc. But the pros massively outweigh the cons.

Greate plugin to extend WP to a CMS
By , for WP 3.8.1

Love to use Pods as my powerfull framework to extend WP.

My only complaint is that documentation is too simple for begginers, more tutorials and examples should be written.

Anyway, amazing plugin
