The complete and reliable plugin for managing custom post types, custom taxonomy and custom fields.
After 2 days of testing I have decided that Types is not suitable for the kind of websites I have in mind. The deficiency is the parent child feature is not powerful enough to properly implement other kinds of relationships that entities may have. This is something that Pods with is Pick feature and Magic Fields with its "Related Type" feature does very easily. This is regrettable as Types is quite a good plugin and with respect to documentation vastly superior to Pods and Magic Fields and with respect to stability superior to Pods.
This makes adding and managing custom fields so much easier than any other method I've tired. My only request would be to have the function filters needed for the WYSIWYG fields automatically added instead of having to manually do this. Other than that... I've found a new addition to my list of "Must Install" plugins :D
Awesome tool for custom post types.
Do check it out now!
Two Words - Un-be-lie-va-ble AWESOME!
Some things I found didn't work as expected, such as password protection on pages/posts and pagination. Documentation for php integration is very light and not very well explained (e.g use of id tags beginning with $ to pull content from a specific post type - only found this through a lot of searching within the forums).
Despite being a paying customer - support for me, for some reason, is non existent. I've tried various times to post on their website forum as well as contact support regarding various issues but have received no response to any of my queries.
As a plugin developer myself I understand the complexity and time involved to create such a plugin, especially one of this caliber. Most WordPress users take for granted what they are getting for free.
This plugin has had many hours of hard work put into it and the underlying logic is very solid. I'm amazed at how fast I can architect my own custom posts. Thanks for the excellent framework and plugin.
Very well done!!
I use on many of my production/clients sites
Types is the first plugin I install on a WordPress website. It is an incredible resource that aims at building a robust and flexible CMS, building the architecture of powerful custom post types with a number of custom field types, designed according to their user experience perspective.
Types is the right toolkit for building custom post types, taxonomies and custom field groups, as well as managing any sort of meta content on the low level APIs as well.
