How the the custom fields are stored


I would like to know how the the custom fields create by hivepress are stored.

The traditional wordpress way of storing it in the _postmeta table causes performance issues.

Do you store it in a custom table.

How is it stored.

What is the schema?



In HivePress, non-selectable attributes (e.g. text, number) are stored as meta fields with “hp_{field_name}” key (for example the Phone field is stored as “hp_phone”), while selectable (e.g. select, radio buttons, multiple checkboxes) are stored as terms of taxonomies with “hp_listing_{field_name}” name (for example the Type field is stored as “hp_listing_type”).
