The days of WordPress-as-a-blog are long gone. To power the new era of WordPress-as-a-backend-service, you need to be able to easily create, manage, and display custom post types. While there are several plugins to let you manage CPTs, only Pods has the ability to build dynamic relationships and display related content with granular control over the UI.
Pods is complex and I’ve spent hours pouring through forums, videos, docs, and snippets trying to find out how to do something. However, the benefits far outweighs the challenges because at the end of the day a non-PHP frontend developer can build entirely custom templates via HTML / CSS. Of course, PHP devs can go to town with templates as well.
I wish Pods were easier, and know the team is working really hard to make it a better developer experience. But even with the learning curve, it’s by far the best part of WordPress in 2022.
