    Pods Framework plugin is a very powerful and flexible tool allowing users to pretty much create, manage, and display their own data objects within WordPress.


    • Very powerful - can extend WordPress in amazing ways
    • Extremely flexible
    • Great way to create, manage and display Custom Post Types and Taxonomies


    • Can be dangerous - Pods can allow you to do unsafe things

    Final take away - this plugin is great for advanced developers to extend WordPress.

    Thanks for the review!

    Our documentation has been lacking, you're totally right. We actually were up all night launching our new site which includes 262 pages of docs to cover most of our public facing functions, classes, and methods. We've included Getting Started docs, and some new how-to tutorials. Hopefully you'll be willing to check our docs out and get closer to a 5 star review :)

    As for the 'unsafe' thing, we agree, Pod Pages, Pod Templates, and Pod Helpers all offer the ability to run PHP (eval) from within them. As of Pods 2.0+, these advanced features are optionally enabled. They'll all be decoupled from Pods core in Pods 2.4 or Pods 2.5, and available as separate plugins that extend Pods.

    If you have any other concerns, please let us know and we'll be sure to take care of any bugs or unsavory things you find that we may not be aware of.

    Again, thanks for your review and constructive criticism, we'll do our best to turn your 4 stars into 5 stars and keep it there long term.
