Reasons for Custom Tables and an API

Custom Database API – Reasons for Custom Tables and an API – Pippins Plugins

When it comes to storing large amounts of data that does not very closely mimic existing WordPress database schemas, you should absolutely use custom tables. Choosing not to use a custom table will likely cause more harm than good. While it’s possible to store almost anything you want as a custom post type in the wp_posts table, that does not mean you should or that it is even a remotely good idea.

You have no idea how happy I am that someone is finally saying this. I’m even happier that the someone saying it is Pippin.

Really looking forward to the rest of the articles in this series!
