My latest task was to build a service catalog using the Genesis framework, the Genesis Sample theme and the PODS custom post type framework plugin. This functionality was to live on a child site of a 630+ site WordPress multisite installation. Before this assignment I had very little experience with the PODS framework, so I really didn't know what I didn't know.
The demo site I created was a single instance on an Azure cloud app service slot. In retrospect, creating a demo on a single single instance was not ideal because things I was easily able to accomplish in a single site were more challenging in a multisite environment where the theme was shared with a number of different child sites.
The catalog itself was fairly strait forward. In PODS I created four pods that consisted of the following:
- Custom Post Type: Services
- Custom Taxonomy: Service Categories
- Custom Taxonomy: Consumers
- Custom Taxonomy: Solutions
