Hi @pesimist57,

wpForo doesn’t use custom post types, so the topics and posts are not stored in wp_posts table, wpForo has its own tables for topics ( _wpforo_topics) and posts ( _wpforo_posts).
Custom post types are being stored in wp_posts and wp_postmeta table. All that you have in WP are already there. This becomes very large and heavy. If you familiar with MySQL you should know that it’s dozens of times faster to get x, y and z data from the same _wpforo_posts table than get those from two wp_post and wp_postmeta tables. wp_posts and wp_postmeta logic is terribly heavy for forums. Custom post types are not suitable for a professional and fast forum board
