    Hi,

    I would like to store forum threads and replies in a custom table using Metabox, MB Custom Table and MB Frontend Submission where forum posts and replies are contained in a custom table (not wp_posts).

    I do not wish to use BBPress (or suchlike) because they are overly complex for a simple forum and need to keep wp_posts segregated for page/post/cpt content only.

    Please could you give me a starting point?

    Thanks

    Hello David, at the moment, the MB Custom Table still relies on the custom post types to store the post data such as post title and post content. It supports only saving custom fields in the custom tables.

    We’re working on an enhancement that brings more power to this extension, which allows you to store any content separately from the wp_posts table. That will include both the custom fields and post fields. But it’s not ready yet and you need to wait.

    Best regards,
    Anh

    Ok,

    This feature is the main thing missing from WordPress as it enables far more performant CPTs.

    It is how Drupal works and is the main benefit Drupal has over WordPress.

    Metabox could be the first framework to bring WordPress up to the standard needed of a modern CMS.

    Please can you advise when this funcationality will be added?

    Thanks

    I’m sorry, we haven’t done it yet. We focused on making the relationship plugin (which has been released recently). We’ll work on this next. Probably it takes 1 month to complete.

    Nice one Anh.

    I’ve had a few more ideas for Metabox which I can discuss here or offline by email if you prefer?
