Pods Framework has released two new versions. Pods 2.6.9 is a maintenance release that includes bug fixes for Pods Templates, Auto Templates, and Pods Shortcodes. Meanwhile, Pods 2.7 beta 1 introduces a new feature called Flexible Relationships.
Flexible Relationships uses WordPress’ media modal that allows users to add or edit records from within the parent record of a relationship. This feature will work on existing relationships once users upgrade to 2.7. Watch the following video to see Flexible Relationships in action.
The development team is asking for as many users as possible to test Flexible Relationships on a staging or testing site so issues can be addressed before its release, tentatively scheduled for the middle of July. Those interested in testing can download the beta from Pods’ GitHub repository.
Testers are encouraged to download the GitHub Updater plugin, created by Andy Fragen, as it makes it easier to download updates from GitHub. If you participate in the testing process, be sure to add ‘2.7’ to any feature, enhancement requests, or bugs that you find when creating a new issue.
