Details

Scott will be presenting on how to use the Pods CMS Framework to easily develop new content types for WordPress. Using the http://dfwwp.org as an example and building it out ahead of time, he will then add a new section to the site live using Pods for people to see. He will also do a special encore performance of the song he played at WordCamp Dallas 2009 titled "WordPress as a CMS".

"Pods is a CMS framework for WordPress. It's a plugin that sits on top of WordPress, allowing you to add and display your own content types. These content types, or "pods", are totally separate from Posts, Pages, or Custom Fields. The Pods plugin uses its own database structure for maximum efficiency, and for relationships among items."-from the Pods web site ( http://pods.uproot.us )
