WordPress SQL Database: Where to store my own data? (2 posts)

    Hi Fans!

    I have a lot of information about customers, contracts and so on on a clients page and I don't want to use the default tables of wordpress database.

    What's the best way to do this? I thought of making new tables like
    custom_customers
    custom_contracts
    ...
    and accessing / modifying them simply via $wpdb->query.

    Is this the best way to do it?
    What happens with the tables after a WordPress Update?

    Thanks for your help!

    If you are not familiar enough with PHP and MySQL to code your own database routines, the Pods CMS Framework plugin might be helpful.

    Pods allows you to define your own tables and gives you the Admin interface to manage them, plus all the functions you need to use the tables in the front end of the site.
