PODS Custom Post Types – Resources

Need Custom Post Types to build a client’s music recording studio site with WordPress. The bands and albums need to be linked so that, for instance, a band’s 7 albums show up on that band’s single page.

I’ll be using PODS Content Development Framework to make Custom Post Types, Taxonomies, and Custom Fields. PODS will also help me create bi-directional connections to link bands to their albums, including title, release date, notes, album cover image, record label, website, management contact, phone number, and email.

Display Taxonomy (inside “each” loop)

Using @name for the Magic Tag displays the correct /taxonomy/ path in the full URL.

[each genre]
	<li><strong>Genre:</strong> <a href="{@permalink,esc_url}">{@name}</a><!-- Magic Tag: @name; Genre Taxonomy inside "each" loop --></li>
[/each]
[each production_category]
	<li><strong>Production Category:</strong> <a href="{@permalink,esc_url}">{@name}</a><!-- Magic Tag: @name; Production Category Taxonomy inside "each" loop --></li>
[/each]
[each project_status]
	<li><strong>Project Status:</strong> <a href="{@permalink,esc_url}">{@name}</a><!-- Magic Tag: @name; Project Status Taxonomy inside "each" loop --></li>
[/each]
</ul>
