Support » Plugin: Pods - Custom Content Types and Fields » Extend custom field to additional db

  • Resolved Norm Sash


    I didn’t find an answer in search, so….

    I have WordPress and a non-WP script running on the same host. The non-WP script stores it’s information in a MySQL db but it is not the WP db.

    Is it possible to use PODs custom fields to extend something like the WP users table with field data from the non-WP db?

    @normsash As long as they are in the same physical database, you can access them through Advanced Relationships which are activated under Pods Admin, Components, Advanced Relationships. This allows you to create relationship fields that reach outside the WordPress tables. They require foreign key identification, etc., but it does allow you to build a link to an external table. You wouldn’t be able to update it, however, if that’s what you’re looking for.

    If you need more details after checking this out, jump on our Slack Chat at in the #dev-chat channel.
