Pods Maintenance Release 2.6.6, Pods Alternative Cache 2.0, Pods SEO 2.0, and Pods Gravity Forms 1.1
We are releasing Pods 2.6.6, with compatibility added for Polylang, fixes and additional improvements for Pods REST API support, and multiple other fixes and improvements. Some highlights for this release:
- Polylang Compatibility: With many thanks to the efforts of Jory Hogeveen for driving this update into Pods, we now have full compatibility with Polylang translation plugin. We will be putting together a quick ‘best practices and functionality’ document for using Polylang with Pods, but in a nutshell these fixes allow your relationship fields and taxonomy terms to be properly translated and connected in Polylang. There will be additional updates coming shortly for ‘label’ translation for Custom Post Types & Taxonomy and added functionality for WPML.
- REST API Updates & Improvements: Thanks to Derrick Hammer for adding support to Pods REST API for extended WP objects (Users, Media & Comments) and fixing multiple nuisance items for this update.
- Auto Templates now with “Filter Overrides”: Thanks to Josh Pollock for adding this new functionality to our Pods Templates/Auto Templates. By default, Auto Templates works only with
the_contentfilter, pushing a Pods Template before or after that particular filter in your theme. You now have the ability to override this filter for single detail, archive or taxonomy archives (available for each individual Pod under Edit Pods, Auto Templates tab). This will be very helpful for archive templates, because they often use
the_content. This should also be very helpful for folks working with Genesis theme or WooCommerce filters.

Pods Alternative Cache 2.0
We have released a cleanup and refactoring of the Pods Alternative Cache code with further support for WPEngine and using objects.
Pods SEO 2.0
Pods SEO now supports the new SEO Analysis JS-based code in Yoast WordPress SEO. All Text, Paragraph, and WYSIWYG fields are included in the analysis. You can edit individual fields to exclude them within the Advanced options tab of each field.
Pods Gravity Forms 1.1
Pods Gravity Forms has received many fixes, in addition to the ability to edit items using the new filter
pods_gf_addon_edit_id and returning the item ID you are editing on the given Pod you have mapped for a feed.
