Pods makes WordPress a Drupal-killer

  • Need multi-variable relationships between multiple sets of content? Done. Need to do a shopping cart with discounts? Done. Need extended user profiles that are integrated with the WordPress user system? Done. A customizable gallery? Lightweight data added on to your posts? How about an advertising system? Done, done and done. You get the idea.

    That being said, Pods IS NOT a plugin that you can install, push some buttons, and voila! Be prepared to do at least some basic coding and customization before Pods actually does anything. Pods’ lightweight architecture and simple (but not simplistic) approach to adding datatypes to WordPress is a joy to work with. Basic documentation is quite complete, but if you want to really harness the power of this plugin, you will be coloring outside the lines of the Pods docs. Help from the development team is always near-at-hand through IRC and the site forums.

    Thanks for the review, glad to have you around! Also thanks for updating the capital P’s 🙂

    Some notes, as I try to always take something from each review and make it an actionable item:

    • Docs: We’ve written a brand new ‘Getting Started’ docs section of our new site we’re getting ready to launch, we’re also rewriting all of our Developer-oriented docs as part of the new site work. Very excited to get that out this month!
    • Pushing Buttons: I think we’re doing a good job at going in a direction of integration with other cool tools that make it easier to do things, but the main holdup for people is the basic knowledge of how Post Types / Fields work and how to use them in their theme.

    BTW, have you checked out all the cool stuff going on in Pods 2.3 Beta yet? http://pods.io/latest/

    Man, I have barely scratched the surface of what Pods can do. Magi182 – Do you happen to have any tutorials anywhere that gives some hints as to a starting approach for building (for example) a “shopping cart with discounts” using Pods?
