Support › MB Custom Table › Any disadvantage creating all table feilds as TEXT?
I'm new to Meta Box. For many years, I've been using ACF Pro for Custom fields.
I saw a setting while creating CF: "Save data in a custom table.
Since I'm not a database Pro, I'm unable to create column types manually by coding.
But I really like to have separate tables for each CF group for just organizing everything!
Is there any significant disadvantage using all column types as TEXT (If I check "Create table automatically")?
Note: My site got 7 Custom Post Types, More than 100 taxonomies, and CF (10 CF Groups).

That was my question.
My question was regarding performance.
Anyways, I switched the plugin.
