Pods CMS Framework

Pods is a CMS framework for creating and managing your own content types.

Create your own content types

A pod, or content type, is a named group of input fields. The Pods plugin lets you create your own content types. Instead of with custom post types, each content type gets its own table.

Create a variety of different input fields, including text, paragraph text, date, number, file upload, and relationship (called “pick”) fields. Pick fields are extremely useful if you want to create relationships among your data. One example is if you want to relate an “event” item with one or more “speaker” items.

Easily display your content

There are several ways to get Pods data to show up throughout your site:

  • Add Pod Pages from within the admin area.
  • Add PHP code directly into your WP template files, or wherever else PHP is supported.
  • Use shortcode to display lists of Pod items or details of a Pod item within WP Pages or Posts.
  • The Pods API allows you to retrieve raw data from and save data to the database.

Migrate!

Pods includes a Package Manager, which allows you to import/export your database structure. You can select which features you want to “package up” and export it for easy migration. Pods also includes an easy to use PHP API to manage all types of Pod-related data for complex operations.

Maintenance Mode

Generates a splash page letting your visitors know that your site is down for routine maintenance.

Simple Footnotes

Create simple, elegant footnotes on your site. Use the [ref] shortcode and the plugin takes care of the rest.
