Groundhogg adds extra databases with special characteristics to WordPress. Groundhogg does not make use of any standard WP databases with the exception of the options table.
We add custom DBs for a few reasons:
- Speed: we do not want to “junk up” any of the content based DBs.
- Simplicity: using custom DBs makes accesseing and finding information very easy
- Extendability: We can easily extend and modify custom DBs, something you cannot do with standard WordPress DBs.
DBs are found in the /inlcudes/db/
