Re: Good model plugin for newbie plugin author to study?
Never insert your own columns into the bbpress core data.Use the meta or create a new table.
Just a warning the the bbpress api is still in a state of flux so some plugins will be obsolete or non-functional soon. For example my “My Views” plugin will be useless once the next trunk becomes stable as they’ve change the entire “views” structure and basically anything else dealing with a query. It’s somewhat confusing (and messy) to me and I’ll have to wait to see examples in new plugins.
