I am working on a plug-in, tentatively called "Pods Post Fields," to attach a Pod form to the Post edit page, as shown by this preview screen shot:
If successful, this plug-in would allow us to store complex data in a Pod like we all love to do, but also allow Pods to act as a post custom field replacement. I have two questions for the forum:
What features would you like to see in a plug-in like this? I already have lots of ideas, but I’d love to hear other people’s input.
What kind of interface would people prefer for organizing the relationships between posts and any attached Pods? I could do everything in a Pod that is installed when the plug-in is installed, or just create some key helpers to attach to existing Pods to link them to posts, or I could create a separate admin page for saving these relationships.
Looks good so far. Send over so we can collaborate and maybe we can get this to a point for inclusion in Pods core in an upcoming release.

Thanks Scott, I will be hopefully sending you a fully functional version in the next few weeks. It’s a slow process because I can only work on it when I’m not working on other (paying) projects.
That’s exactly what I thought I was getting when I was looking for an alternative to Flutter. That would be so AWESOME if you would make this plugin. I have everything set up in PodsCMS, but having difficulty making my content WordPress posts. This would help me so much! Thanks in advance.
