Support General WordPress Comments vs Custom Table

    I have been reading into WordPress comments and performance in the front end when calling a large number of comments. I know there is ajax and lazy load options but I was just wondering if I was to create my own custom comments table to manage comments and replies (for a custom post type), would it help with front end calling and performance speed vs using the default WordPress comments? as metabox caches calls etc so this may be one benefit?

    I do realise its a vague question as it all depends on the level of data etc but just researching before I start to build and want to make sure I choose the correct option for website speed purposes.

    Hi Nicolas,

    Meta Box has not supported saving comment meta in the custom table yet. You can implement AJAX as the lazy load option to load a few comments on loading to boost your site speed.

    Ok thanks for clarifying this, I know what to do now then.
