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.

Color Garden

Color Garden is a free theme released on Museum Themes under the GPLv3. This theme is jam-packed with features, from WordPress 3.0 functionality to Twitter integration. Color Garden uses WP3.0′s custom header option, and comes with 4 unique headers that accent the 4 color palette options available on the theme options page. We’ve also built in custom menus, custom backgrounds, and post thumbnails, hitting all the bases for cutting-edge WordPress functionality. If you use Twitter, we’ve got you covered there, too, integrating Twitter’s new Tweet button into our existing social sharing block on single post pages and providing options to display your latest tweets in the sidebar or the footer. The footer and sidebar are completely widgetized, and the footer has three distinct columns to add widgets. If that wasn’t enough, we’ve embedded a custom typeface in the header using CSS font-face. Each color palette has its own unique stylesheet, so you can easily use this theme as a framework or build child themes (or skins) for it.
