To create these “work-around” pages we created our own custom post types using the plug in PODS. This lets us create any type of input data with virtually any field then call, sort and list the data using WordPress’ built in PHP functions.

For example we created a custom WordPress category called “Contract Categories” and then created our own contract post types called “Public Contracts”. We then were able to associate whatever contract to whatever category. Thus enabling the categories to display their associated contracts.

The following is a breakdown of each created pod custom post type with their respective fields.
