Pods – Custom Content Types and Fields


Manage all your custom content needs in ONE location with the Pods Framework. You can:

  • Create and edit custom post types, taxonomy, fields and extend existing WordPress objects like users, media, posts and pages or extend other plugins’ custom post types — all from Pods.
  • Easily display your custom content, whether you want to use shortcodes, widgets, the code-free Pods Template approach, or use standard PHP in WordPress Theme templates and functions.
  • Create connections between any of your content to help organize it in logical and useful ways with relationship fields.

Let Pods help you grow your development skills and manage content beyond the standard WordPress Posts & Pages. Check out pods.io for our User Guide, Support Forum, and our Slack Chat to help you develop with Pods.


Content types that evolve with your needs

Create any type of content that you want — small or large — we’ve got you covered. Every content type created with Pods gets all the love it needs to grow up big and strong. You’ll get an easy to use interface that lets you manage custom fields and how your content type will function.

We now give you the power you’ve never before had with a single plugin because we’ve re-imagined how to manage content types from the ground up.

Create new content types

With Pods, you can create entirely new content types:

  • Custom Post Types – Content types that look and function like Posts and Pages, but in their own separate areas
  • Custom Taxonomies – Content types that look and function like Categories and Tags, but in their own separate areas
  • Custom Settings Pages – Create custom admin forms under Settings to help organize your site’s custom global settings
  • Advanced Content Types – These are entirely separate from WordPress and function off their own database tables

Extend existing content types

Not satisfied? How about the power of being able to extend existing content types? We’ve got you covered with extending these major WordPress objects:

  • Post Types – Create and manage fields for any existing Post Type (Posts, Pages, etc), even those created by plugins or themes
  • Taxonomies – Create and manage fields for any existing Taxonomies (Categories, Tags, etc), even those created by plugins or themes
  • Media – Create and manage fields for your media uploads, easily add additional information and context to any file you want
  • Users – Create and manage fields for your user profiles, this is truly the bees knees!
  • Comments – Create and manage fields for your visitor comments, easily add fields to fit the way you use comments as reviews and more

Use our field types, or make your own

We have a lot of common field types available for you to use, or you can build your own with our extensible field type classes.

Each of these field type have their own set of options, if those aren’t enough they are also easily extended:

  • Date / Time – Date, Time, or both
  • Number – Plain Number or Currency
  • Text – Plain Text, Website, Phone, E-mail, or Password
  • Paragraph Text – Plain Paragraph, WYSIWYG (TinyMCE or CLEditor, or add your own), or Code (Syntax Highlighting)
  • Color Picker – Choose colors, because colors are great
  • Yes / No – You can’t really go wrong with a checkbox, but we’ve added a few charms to make it stand out
  • File / Image / Video – Upload new media or select from existing ones with our Media Library integration, or use a simple uploader, your choice
  • Avatars – Upload new media or select from existing ones, automatically integrates with get_avatar calls for Users extended by Pods
  • Relationships – Relate any item, to any item of any WP object type, another Pod, or a custom user-defined list — with bidirectional relationships

Relationships to rule the world with

  • Custom defined list
  • Post Types
  • Taxonomies
  • Users
  • User Roles
  • User Capabilities
  • Media
  • Comments

And many other relationships are also available including:

  • Image Sizes
  • Navigation Menus
  • Post Formats
  • Post Status
  • Sidebars
  • Countries (predefined)
  • US States (predefined)
  • Days of Week (predefined)
  • Months of Year (predefined)

Easily display your content

There are several ways to get Pods data to show up throughout your site, but with any WP object type you create or extend with Pods, you can use all of the functions and methods you’re already used to with the core WordPress API / Loop — out of the box!

Additionally, we have a United Theming API that lets you theme your content types across every type of Pod, regardless if it’s a post type or taxonomy or user, or.. you get the picture.

Customized Management Panels

Utilize Pods UI (included in Pods 1.10+) to build your own Custom Management panels for your Pods.

Optional Components to do even more

You can enable some of our included components to extend your WordPress site even further:

  • Roles and Capabilities – Create or edit Roles for your site, and customize their corresponding capabilities
  • Pages – Create custom pages that function off of your site’s path, with wildcard support, and choose the Page Template to use
  • Templates – Use our template engine to create templates that can be handed off to clients for carefree management
  • Helpers – Customize how Pods works right from the admin area with simple to advanced reusable code snippets
  • Advanced Content Types – These types of content were built into Pods prior to 2.3, but are now optionally enabled
  • Table Storage – Enable table-based storage for custom fields on Post Types, Media, Users, and Comments. Also adds the ability to add custom fields to Taxonomies
  • Advanced Relationships – Add advanced relationship objects for relating to including Database Tables, Multisite Networks, Multisite Sites, Themes, Page Templates, Sidebars, Post Type Objects, and Taxonomy Objects
  • Markdown Syntax – Parses Markdown Syntax for Paragraph Text / WYSIWYG fields
  • Builder theme integration – Use our tightly integrated modules for Builder in your layouts

Migrate to Pods, find out what you’ve been missing

Using another solution? We’ve built additional components to help you transition:

  • Import from Custom Post Type UI
  • More imports coming soon including Importing from Custom Field Suite, Advanced Custom Fields, and Custom Tables

Plays well with others

We also do our best to integrate and play nicely with other projects:


Pods really wouldn’t be where it is without all of the contributions both financially and through code / time. Check out our GitHub for a list of contributors, or search our GitHub issues to see everyone involved in adding features, fixing bugs, or reporting issues/testing.

Where do we go for Support on your plugin?

Our primary Support is handled through our Support Forums at https://pods.io/forums/. For the fastest support, you can contact us on our Slack Chat at https://pods.io/chat/ in the #support channel. We do not staff our Slack channel 24 hours, but we do check any questions that come through daily and reply to any unanswered questions.

We do have a community of Pods users and developers that hang out on Slack so you’re sure to get an answer quickly. We answer our Forum questions once a week with follow-up during the week as we’re prioritizing resources towards restructuring and improving our documentation.

I’ve found a Bug or I have a Feature Request

If you’ve uncovered a Bug or have a Feature Request, we kindly request you to create an Issue on our GitHub Repository at https://github.com/pods-framework/pods/issues/new. Please be very specific about what steps you did to create the issue you’re having and include any screenshots or other configuration parameters to help us recreate or isolate the issue.

Will Pods work with my Theme?

We don’t provide any special CSS or display attributes with your custom content so as long as your theme works with WordPress standard functions and the WordPress Template Hierarchy, you should be fine. You may need to create special PHP WordPress Theme Templates for your content, or you can use our Pods Templates and the Auto Template option to display your ‘template’ containing your custom content where your theme normally outputs the_content filter.


Outstanding, brilliant and powerful!

Pods give you Custom Post Types, Custom fields and so much more.
It really empowers my sites and makes em super easy to use after the setup is done. Uses this for all my sites!

A great many add-ons to support other services, super support, many YT videos, good documentation and slack group.

My choice was between ACF and PODS.
Glad that I choose to go with PODS I’m really super impressed by this plugin.

WordPress super powers

I had been aware of Pods for many years but never tried it because I hadn’t fully realized the depth of what it could do. I decided to try it out on a project needing custom post types, taxonomies, and fields—and now I regret waiting so long. This thing gives you WordPress super powers to implement all sorts of custom things with amazing speed!

I’m happy to now have it in my toolbox and I’m off to make a donation to help support the project.

Easily one of the BEST PLUGINS OUT THERE!

I have been developing for wordpress for the past 5-6 years and PODS is has easily grown to be one of my most favorite and most USEFUL go to plugins. Although I possess the knowledge to do by hand some of the things PODS does; PODS literally saves me hours with an extremely easy to use interface, a very detailed documentation, and excellent support. If you are in a position where you need to frequently add custom fields, and forms to your site, you have to give this plugin a try. It is one of those things that once you get used to it, you will ask yourself how you ever got by without it. A+++

Super Framework

I use wordpress since over 10 years now, when it was the standard blogging software von msn.
Over the years (15 years ago now) i become a professional software engineer and i used wordpress in a lot of projects.
there are a lot of nice plugins on the market, wich can optimise wordpress nearly für every usecase. it is often used as a shop (with woocommerce), as community, photoblog and so on. the posibilities where nearly endless.
it came to that point, when a big american newspaper wants to scale their media libraray.
recognize, not the archive fpr the poblic, but the archive fpr them selves where are many many more files in different sizes, formats, languages and so on stored.

this is, when the ponds foundation came in the game.

i can recoomend it very much.

tommorrow i will write more here

Documentation quite difficult, but support outstanding

When you get stuck the documentation is not easy to find nor to understand for average wppeople. For instance I saw nothing happened when I use the shortcode to output form-fields. Probably I did something wrong, but I got stuck. I complained about that, but the authors were quick to reply and pointed me in the right direction.

This plugin can do amazing things that no other premium plugins can do right. So it is well worth the effort to hit that learning curve. 😉

Super plugin with endless possibilities

This Pods can work miracles, without having to use php, to build databases, piles of info, but it still requires some thinking and understanding how it quite works. I have used it simple to create lists but also quite complicated to make many fields all interrelated, thus a visitor can click on anything to get more info.
Diplaying the data is very flexible. It may need some sorting to get it right with html, css and tables, but you can get it any way you like.
Help is always quickly at hand, to the point and direct.
This has become unmissable, needful to create websites that are dynamic.
Big point: this helps create sites where owners and/or users can input loads of data themselves and have this displayed in every very nice way they like.

2.7.1 – December 8th 2017

  • Fix table join logic for taxonomies when renaming meta fields #4613 @sc0ttkclark
  • Fix Pods Form submit errors and 404s #4618 @pglewis

2.7 – December 4th 2017

New PHP & WP Minimum Version Requirements:

  • PHP Version Change Requirement 5.3+
  • WP Version Change Required 4.5+

Major Changes in 2.7 Release: Flexible Relationships:

  • New Relationship Field Format “List View”: The power of the new flexible relationships is our new modal window that opens within the existing record for relationship fields. This is modeled after the Media Modal from WordPress and provides full functionality to Add New related records or edit existing records all from within the parent record of the relationship. This is provided through our new List View field format for relationship fields. To see a demo of this field in action head on over to our YouTube
  • Add New with Flexible Relationships: The new flexible relationships will automatically enable Add New on all your existing relationships, but you can disable this from the Additional Options tab for each relationship field. You can switch field formats to the new List View from additional options tab as well.
  • Dynamic Field Views: The relationship fields and file upload fields have been rewritten to take advantage of “Dynamic Field Views”, driven by JavaScript. More technical details about the directions we went towards these field changes can be read about in our “Pods 2.7: What We Did and Why We Did It”

2.6.11 – September 20th 2017

  • Fixed: WordPress 4.8.2 introduced a breaking change that no longer correctly prepared number/currency queries. It did not introduce a vulnerability but only produced Database errors.

2.6.10 – July 14th 2017

  • Fixed: Pods Templates were creating erroneous output with nested [if _fieldname_][else][/if] and [each _fieldname_][/each] template tags inside HTML entities after 2.6.9 upgrade.

  • Fixed: Multi-file fields save was causing array to string conversion warning. New function & helper added called array_filter_walker for backwards compatibility. Also fixes the ‘editable’ titles in Multiple File Upload. Fixes (#4112,#4313). (#4314). [@mgratch,@JoryHogeveen,@sc0ttkclark]
  • Added: Pods Templates & Page Capabilities have been added to the Members Cap Filter and Pods Role Manager from Components, Roles & Capabilities. This corrects an issue where Pods Templates and Pods Pages were not available to Admins, only Network Admins. Admins will still need to have the pods_templates_ and pods_pages_ capabilities added to their role, but now they’ll be able to do this without additional code. Fixes (#4311). (#4342). [@JoryHogeveen]
  • Fixed: Corrected 2.x branch for GitHub Feed. Fixes (#4305). (#4306). [@sc0ttkclark]

  • Fixed: Corrected Pods overriding preview link for post updated messages. Fixes (#4092). (#4093). [@tuanmh]
  • Fixed: When using shortcodes/magic tags with PDF attachments, ._src returns an image since WP 4.7. This will now output the URL of the file. You can still get PDF generated images using ._src.image_size or ._img. Fixes (#4040). (#4111). [@JoryHogeveen]
  • Fixed: Audio attachments will now work properly with pods_attachment_import. (#4155) [@sc0ttkclark]
