  • Felix Arntz: Types, Subtypes, Meta, Options: An Abstract View on Data Structures in WordPress

    Felix Arntz: Types, Subtypes, Meta, Options: An Abstract View on Data Structures in WordPress

    WordCamp Portland 2018Speaker: Felix Arntz

    January 14, 2020 — When we work with WordPress, we deal with data that we commonly know as posts, pages, media, comments, options etc. However, the REST API has required us to rethink what some of these data structures are and how they should work, particularly in regards to metadata and options, which have historically been an undefined dump of arbitrary data. This session provides an abstract overview of how data in WordPress is structured and gives insight on questions like: How are post types and taxonomies related? What makes metadata different from options? Where does my own data fit in? If you are developing for WordPress, it is crucial to know some of these concepts. In recent years, WordPress has started to make some structure out of its previous data mess, but is still only touching the surface. And we can all contribute to figuring it out together.

    Justin Foell: Too Meta

    WordCamp Portland 2017Speaker: Justin Foell

    January 14, 2020 — WordPress’ default dumping ground for all data related to posts (and custom post types) is in post meta. When there’s a lot of meta data, it starts to strain your server performance and resources in ways you may not have realized.

    I’ll go through a real-world example of too much meta-data being stored with a post, some hacks to avoid problems, and some better solutions using the meta data API. I’ll explain how you can easily move data, even if your site has already been designed, developed, and deployed.

    Use less memory, handle more concurrent visitors, and speed up page loads by only loading what you need, when you need it.
