    This seems to be more of an ad than a review. For the price there are better alternatives.

    What alternatives? I’m a Toolset user myself (no relation to WPMayor or the Toolset dev beyond purchase) and I know of no other plugin or suite of plugins that compare. There’s plenty of alternatives to Types itself but I don’t know of an equivalent to Views, Access or the entire toolset suite. I’m genuinely curious.

    I don’t know of any alternatives to Views other than PHP. It’s an excellent product. I’m developing a recruitment site and the toolset is perfect for developing the Jobs database. The level of flexibility is almost daunting such is the depth of the product. Also the support is pretty decent too – especially when compared to most plugins and themes.

    WordPress is way too commercialized. You can do all of this with Drupal.

    I’ve used the Types plugin a number of times and it works really well. I implemented the custom post types using templates but I will try using the Views plugin next time which will make it simpler to implement.

    Unfortunately the features of Access in the ToolSet bundle are dependent on deprecated ‘role hierarchies’ from WP 2.x days and there is no way to turn them off. This disqualifies it for many custom CMS applications. I had to get a refund for this reason.

    The learning curve to building complicated sites with Drupal is huge… yes you can do it but not for the average content person to try. Toolset is a much better option and it is slowly getting better for non techie guys like me.

    I personally think the Toolset suite of plugins is great and for anyone with limited coding skills they are a godsend. I bought this a while back when it was just Types & Views because I was messing about with custom post types and styling the front-end layout. But with the extras in the suite now this is a fantastic package of related plugins. Oh and of course because it is a paid for product the support is good.

    I have no affiliation with the Toolset guys I am just someone who bought it and uses it all the time on my WordPress website.

    Cheers, Neil
