  • Is it ok to add new fields to the existing wordpress tables without worrying that future wordpress upgrades will break the plugin?

    For example, say I want to add a new field to the _posts table to add additional information for each post. Would this be ok to do? I would just create a new table but it would be a 1 to 1 relationship and that goes against normalization standards. I would also like to add new fields to the users table.
