    Hi.

    The main downside of your plugin is that it uses WordPress default post and postmeta tables. If only you could introduce custom tables for Woody Ad Snippets, your plugin would become my first choice.

    Good luck!

    Hello.

    There is no reason to use custom tables in the Woody plugin.
    Many larger plugins also use post and postmeta tables, such as Woocommerce. This is a normal practice for WordPress.

    Thanks for your reply Artem.
    You are right in that many other plugins use WP default tables.
    But, in my view, if a plugin doesn’t create a front-end CPT (like page or post) there is no need to load extra data in the default tables. Personally, I believe that such approach would make WordPress lighter in data handling.

    By the way, one of the beauties of Code Snippets plugin is that it does exactly that. It uses its own custom table for storing its snippets.

    I don’t understand why this is an advantage.
