Pods, a plugin which helps evolve WordPress into a much more refined content management system (CMS), is moving into the 2.0 development phase.
Scott Clark wrote a post yesterday with all the updates with the 2.0 alpha release. One of the exciting things to note about this 2.0 release is that it’s being powered by a Kickstarter project to help fund the project’s development. Ryan covered the success of the Kickstarter project over three months ago, and he noted that Scott was able to raise over $3,000 to continue the project.
So far, here are some important updates in this alpha release:
- A new user interface
- Add New Pod wizard guides you through creating a new content type or extending one
- Edit Pod screen lets you add / edit fields, and choose from many field options that are built-in (yay for not needing helpers for most common use-cases!)
- Create Custom Post Types and Custom Taxonomies, plus manage their labels / settings in the Edit Pod area
