Creating Metatable for Member Directories

Ultimate member 2.1.3 adds the option to create and use a metatable for additional improvement of the member directories.

If you experience issues with member directory speed or use many filters, that can slow down your website, we recommend enabling a metatable option on your website.

New metatable will contain all important metadata for speed and search, filters, and sorting improvements, especially beneficial for highly loaded and big databases.

The metatable can be created with these simple steps:

  1. Enable custom table for user meta checkbox in Ultimate member -> Settings -> Misc section 

  2. Creating a full backup of your website and database. This can be done via a control panel of your hosting provider.

  3. Click on the "Run" button and wait for the upgrade process to finish.
