If my theme has a lot of options is it better to store all options in one database entry, or to use a databse entry for each group of options? IE would I name all options like this
themeSlug[optionType_specificOption] or like this:
themeSlug_optionType[specificOption]?In the latter example if I need the settings for my post slider I would do
$sliderOptions = get_option('themeSlug_slider');.
I guess my question is do I see any performance benefit to making several smaller queries vs one large query for my options? Are their any other advantages/disadvantages to grouping my options into different entries?
