Support » Plugins and Hacks » How to integrate content from another database?

  • Hi all,

    I’m a bit of a WordPress newbie—hoping someone can provide some insight into the plugin architecture.

    I am using WordPress for the content management of my website, but I also have additional database content which I want to integrate with the site.

    I want to be able to hook into WordPress’s URL routing so I can serve up content from the second database.

    I still want to use the WordPress machinery (e.g. page templates) to serve up the other content.

    For example, I wan to map all URLs such as:

    /names/Alice
    /names/Bob

    or

    tags/Foo

    to dynamic database content.

    Other URLs (e.g. permalinks) should be handled by WordPress in the usual way.

    Is there a plug-in available that already does something like this.

    If not, what would be the best way to achieve it?

    Cheers,
    Lach
