Theme with PODS and BuddyPress will it work???

  • I want to create a theme (which I’ve done before) use Pods for the CMS and BuddyPress.

    With BuddyPress I want to have a member be able to login and place their business information. As a member they would have their own page to enter allowed business information that would update to a directory of businesses on the web site. Is there a plug-in or a tutorial that someone could point me to achieve this? Thank you in advance.

    Yeah, you can do that. It will take some work. Just add in all the profile fields you’d like to use for the ‘business listing’ and then display those fields in a directory of sorts using custom template files. Or you could style up a member ‘blog’ theme that is formatted as a ‘listing’ with maybe some edit in place ajax functionality that’ll allow a member to enter their business info and restricts them from doing anything else. That way you could use sitewide queries to build a directory of these ‘listings’. I can’t say there’s a cut and paste sorta plugin to achieve this, but the best place to start would be here and here.

    Was recently in the Pods IRC channel and was told by the devs that they don’t plan on addressing BP until WP 3.0 is out. I run Pods on my wife’s site and think you could force the issue but it might not be worth it
