I've been seeing notes in the changelog about moving the templates into a file. I started doing that for a current project, and it worked fine for my purposes, I put in a template for the CPT in the child theme.
However, I had to add another CPT, and suddenly I realized I would rather have one tempalte that pulls in the header and footer and use pods_content to pull in the pod templates for the different post types. I only need to have the one file, and honestly, using magic tags is way easier to create concise output.
I get that it is stored in the database, and all that entails. I haven't tried any performance tests, and I *would* like to keep my templates in vcs. Please let me know what the recommended deployment is, and what I should consider when deciding. Thanks! ^_^
