In this video, I compare some of these amazing tools that help you to build amazing WordPress websites that go beyond just posts and pages.

My passion is making the best quality video tutorial online, for non-techies. When I am not behind the camera, I am usually helping out one of my YouTube subscribers.

  1. YO utalked about ACF not being able to create custom post types….so what would we use to do that?

    1. There are many plugins for free that can create a custom post type for you. Just do a search and choose the most popular one. I personally use PODS to create my custom post types.

  2. Awesome review and advices. Thanks! I will go for Pods with FacetWP and Gravity Forms. Would be very nice to see this video also consider Elementor. Happy new year!

  3. Thank you Adamfor this information.But what if I want to create a listings like a real estate, products etc.with many properties or products…it has to be done one by one? I know there are themes or plugins that can do that but if I want to develop the listings myself with CPT it will take forever to load like 500 properties, Is there a way or a CPT that can csv import /export to mKe things easy and that can manage custom fieleds of the post?

    1. There are tools for importing data into WordPress. I would suggest taking a look at WP All Import.

  4. I build sites with Beaver + Themer and Toolset all the time. Might want to update the video here to talk about relationships in Toolset.

  5. Hey Adam!

    Thanks a lot for the video… I know how much time it takes to really research this instead of just copy pasting a bunch of characteristics from their product pages.

    One doubt that popped up while watching your video… Is there any substitue for Toolset Access? That is, conditionally display/take actions based on user role or status (logged in or not)? So that we don’t display a submission form to a non logged-in user.

    If Pods or any other plugin can take care of that, it’d be a killer stack having BB + Pods/ACF + GravityForms + Permissions.

    I too much prefer having specialized tools for each task deeply integrated.

    Thanks for all your work!
