This plugin is better than original WordPress 3.0 custom-types! Congratulations for the Pods team! 😉

Great great plugin – I believe this will change the world of WordPress. I have beening looking for this for a while and finally found it here. I will leave a feedback in the WordPress plugin directory after trying it – I’m sure it will be a five star 🙂

Approaches an ExpressionEngine light for WP. Very impressive and pretty amazing this isn’t included in WP as a default.

This plugin seems nice but for web agencies who are already familiar or adept to customizing a template would just make this plugin irrelevant for their clients. Clients or the end users would just like to see how the site looks after the design and use it instantly, in our experience its rare a client would know how to type in Classes or php scripts, this may become difficult on their part rather than just hiring a designer.
We normally crack the whole template and design a client’s site within a day only without compromising the looks/layout of the site.
Just balancing…but this plugins works well for some developers.

Good video Matt. Just wondering though, if this is the basics and you used all that PHP in this video alone, is that standard practice in the use of this plugin? I don’t know PHP from ABC so I’m wondering if I would grasp the concepts and flexibility that PODS provides.

This isn’t so much a CMS as it is a wordpress application framework plugin. Impressive tool for developers but not for content managers.

@Jeffro – Pods does require a modest amount of PHP knowledge, even when just getting started with Pods. The goal is for the developers to set up the content types and page structures, then pass it to clients to create and manage content from the content types you’ve created.
@kgraeme – Pods comes with full support for managing content within your new content types. It is a framework in the sense that it’s a “blank slate” for you to build from, but a CMS in that you can easily add content and manage the content you already have.
