WordPress supports custom post types since version 3.
This is a GUI for adding and managing custom post types.
Unlike WP custom post types, each content type gets its own database table.
A pod is a named group of data fields.
Built as a WP plugin, pods allow to create custom content types (pods), and add the fields needed to each pod.
Once content types are set up, add items to them. This involves filling out a form with the input fields being the fields created.
Unpack and upload it to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.
Here are some key features of "Pods Framework":
· Add Pod Pages from within the admin area. Pod Pages support PHP and Wildcard URLs. For example, the Pod Page "events/*" will be the default handler for all pages beginning with "events/". This allows you to have a single page to handle a myriad of different items.
· 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.
· WordPress 2.8 or higher
