I have suggested several options but they keep insisting that this is how they want to integrate WP into their site. I am new-er to their team and I think their old developer introduced them to WP and they treat it as a standalone database with plugins.
They are really only wanting to use the information generated from a plugin called connections to display on the employees page. So the data is not updating very option. I am not an expert at WP or loops. I have had some success integrating information from other pages but only on single WP installs.
The way they use WP is the setup an individual blog (call it) employees. I created a blank template that just serves up the data generated by the connections plugin. That blog only does that. I don't know if that helps. I was assuming that If I could get the proper data I could use
// Include WordPress
The problem is the line
[query_posts('showposts=1');] I have never done this with pages or even know where to start with a WP-MS install.
