asked on

MySQL, PHP and WP: Organizing my own data tables?

I see lots of tables from WordPress and a few from WPForms. What is a conventional table name for my own tables? In this case, it will be a Contacts table.

That's a great idea, to have al my tables in a unique DB. Thanks.
Expanding @Scott's answer, also likely best to create a namespace for your tables that avoids all potential name collision with other plugins.

So maybe something like tag-plugin, so...


Open in new window

Just some namespace which will never collide with any other plugin.
When you say namespace are you referring to the prefix?  Schema? or something else?
