Dealing with monster websites
🎃 How do you cope with large volumes of data in WordPress?

In this series, Lee looks at a range of WordPress tools that can add value to both the development process and client interactions. For each episode, Lee will define a problem, discuss his agency’s solution, and share a use case.

The problem

WordPress websites with many custom fields associated to post types. This can lead to a bloated post_meta table and in turn slow queries and overall performance.

The solution

Lee’s agency uses is Metabox, to override the default WordPress behavior and store custom field data in single rows in custom tables.

Use cases

Two use cases for this are an internal CRM with lots of data or a searchable directory with thousands of assets around the world.
