    Yes. If you want to have tons of private and hidden forums, you’ll want to look into optimizing the core queries to not rely on meta queries. If you’re using public forums, you should be just fine.

    If you’re currently using a caching plugin on the WordPress side, or thinking of doing it, some people have reported cache invalidation issues, namely that it’s not happening correctly. I need more eyes and input on that, or need to sit down and really experiment with what’s going on, to say for sure if it’s a bug or not.

    Thanks for the insight! Your remark ‘to not rely on meta queries’ makes me think that might be the performance-issue we are coping with at the moment. In our ‘latest posts’ and ‘newest topics’ listings are particularly heavy.

    Do you have examples of optimized core queries? Does it mean storing some user info in wp_users instead of wp_usermeta?
