Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Database structure is terrible

  • boutzamat


    All SEO data is saved in wp_options table (for terms anyway) in an array, instead of per term meta.
    This makes it an absolute hell to migrate to a new installation if the site is not cloned 1:1.
    Terrible design.

    If you have any further information that may affect the prioritization, please feel invited to reply to this comment.



    Thanks for the reply.

    You can tell the developers that WP has a add_term_meta / get_term_meta function that the devs can use to store Yoast SEO data per term.

    Saving everything in a serialized array in the wp_options table is something i wouldn’t dare to expect from a professional plugin developer 🙂
