    Hi,

    is there a way to select an external database? It’s running on the same (local) MariaDB installation, same user/pass, though another table.

    I have weather-data stored and want to display some news-TV like “scrolling text”. Any way to get a single line, too? Would be good enough if I could do 1 shortcode for every column to catch the latest data.

    No, sorry, there is currently not any way that you can use this plugin to run queries on an external database. you would need to import the data or else use cURL to get the content off of the other site.
