As the title says, I tried to save my group as a clone with 'multiple' checked, but it is still serializing the data. I started with the custom table and saw an old post saying that wasn't supported yet, so I created a new one and threw the data in postmeta table yet it's still serialized.
How do you actually save cloned groups on their own row without serializing?
And if you can't, is there a different way to save groups of data together that I'm missing?
After messing with the actual data, it did simply show as an array when I pulled it out which was fine. I am probably going to avoid doing many WP_Query lookups anyway at this point because it's just easier for me to do a wpdb->get than trying to navigate WordPress' WP_Query formula.
Perhaps I'll watch some WP_Query videos later on to fully understand how that works. I'm sure WP has built-in caching with that (unless I'm wrong?) but it was a nightmare trying to figure it all out.
