Types is a plugin that helps you define content. It creates Custom Post Types, Taxonomies and Custom Fields in WordPress so you don’t have to. That’s right—no need to mess with code.
Views, on the other hand, is a little more visual. It handles the way your content is displayed. It’s not another drag-and-drop framework. It handles the queries for you. All you have to do is use your CSS and HTML skills to make your design come to fruition.
Types is available from the WordPress Plugin Directory. Views is available on their website for $49. If you buy it now, or anytime during the beta period, you’ll get lifetime support and upgrades. Otherwise, you’ll only get one year of each.
Do you use a plugin for creating Custom Post Types, Taxonomies and Custom Fields? Or do you prefer to do it all by hand?
