FacetWP works out of the box with our Custom Post Type, Custom Taxonomy and many of our Custom Meta fields (date ranges, specific text filters and search). If you want to incorporate the added flexibility of filtering by our relationship fields, the Pods Integration for FacetWP adds that flexibility.
Calling a Pods Template inside a FacetWP loop:
* 'future_ready_resourc' is the Pod name
* 'Combined Resources View' is the Pod template name
<?php while ( have_posts() ): the_post(); ?>
<?php echo pods( 'future_ready_resourc', get_the_id() )->template( 'Combined Resources View' ); ?>
<?php endwhile; ?>
- Why do you recommend other Plugins instead of Pods for some functionality?
We get asked this a lot, especially when people come to us wanting to build complicated forms with Pods or eCommerce solutions or Event Calendars. We believe “why re-invent the wheel?”. If it’s going to be more work for you to create an entire eCommerce solution, since Pods doesn’t support any kind of payment gateways, email notifications, etc., we always recommend WooCommerce for eCommerce websites, Gravity Forms for advanced, beautiful forms, The Event Calendar for event management and FacetWP for excellent front-end filtering & search.
