I'm setting up a custom post type and have created a few custom fields. Now I see that you can also use the feature 'Save data in a custom table'. Is there some information I can read how to use this feature? For example I have the following questions: Do I need the other Metabox plugin Custom tables? Does it help with choosing a table or do I exactly need to use the right name?
Yes, you need to install/activate the plugin MB Custom Table or MB AIO to use this feature. After creating the custom table by coding, you can add the table name to the Builder to save the field value to the custom table.
What a coincidence 🙂 Thanks for this nice tutorial.
I've used the 'Save data in a custom table' and 'Create table automatically' features of the Builder to create the custom table. After created I changed the field types in the table via PHPmyAdmin, because all fields were Text type. Is that okay to do or might that cause problems if I change the field types this way in the database?
