Re: Good model plugin for newbie plugin author to study?
Sorry — I missed dbDelta and didn’t have a WP install handy to compare with.
As for whether I need a new table: is it advisable for a plugin to mess around with adding columns to standard bbPress tables? I suppose I thought I could do less damage by creating my own.
My application: I want to add geolocation (latitude and longitude) to topics. From a strict DB schema point of view there’s no reason for my data not to go into the topics table.
