[resolved] Fetching data from a different database (2 posts)

    I have a wordpress site and i need a members list page where members name and contact details are listed. I have a separate mysql database with all the contact details of members in it. I need to fetch them and show them in my wordpress site and it also need a search and pagination function.

    So this is what I did, I used the wpdb function to connect and display data, it works well, but the issue is for pagination and search. Does anyone know if it is possible to fetch data from another database and display it in a wordpress site using the wordpress paginate and search, just like another post ??

    would be a great help, if someone had experienced this
    thanks in advance !1

    this is solved !! I used a jquery grid, so it loads all the records first and then the grid does the sort, search and paginate. so it was easy, i used this grid http://www.datatables.net/
