    Hi,

    can we set up wpForo for different custom post types (but not for the default WP posts)?
    Can we setup them differently for CPT 1 and CPT 2 ?

    Thank you!

    Hi @vanetreg,
    I’m sorry but wpForo doesn’t use custom post types, so the topics and posts are not stored in wp_posts table, wpForo has its own tables for topics ( _wpforo_topics) and posts ( _wpforo_posts).
    Custom post types are being stored in wp_posts and wp_postmeta table. All what you have in WP are already there. This becomes very large and heavy. CPT and the database architecture with wp_posts and wp_postmeta logic is terribly heavy for forums. Custom post types are not suitable for a professional and fast forum boards.

    Hi @gvectors-team

    Thank you for the info!
    So being more specific:
    can we use WP’s standard or custom taxonomy and custom fields with wpForo Topics and Posts?
    (In my case I’d use flat custom taxonomy, post and term meta with them, for advanced filtering and browsing)
    I’ve just checked, but I only found a User Custom Fields addon. So will you apply some similar I want in the near future?

    Or just the opposite: can we process, use wpForo objects (post, topic, etc.; and their content) in 3rd party plugins like Toolset’s Types or ACF?
    I could add the necessary CT or CF with them (that’s why I asked first whether they are CPTs, because in that case I could do…)

    I’m sorry but not, I’ve already mentioned that wpForo core is based on own content types stored in separate topic and post tables. There is no way to use wpForo content with custom post types and taxonomies. If this is essential for you, you should try the bbPress plugin. It’s based on CPT system.

    OK, I’d prefer yours. but I need that feature, either in Foro or Discuz

    You can use wpDiscuz comment plugin. It works for custom post types. Just navigate to Dashboard > Comments > Forms, edit the Default comment form or create a new form and enable it for your custom post type: https://wpdiscuz.com/docs/wpdiscuz-documentation/getting-started/custom-comment-form/comment-form-settings/#post-types
