Hello, I know about Custom post types and how to create them. Thing is, I want to create a custom table specifically for this post type so that the normal wp_posts table doesn't get cluttered with a bunch of stuff. Plus, the custom post type will have many different fields, like userID, name, location, etc, etc. I would do this with custom PHP outside of wordpress and "The Loop", but I want to be able to manage these custom posts in the backend of wordpress, just like I could with custom post types. Would it be easier to mesh these two together this way, or should I do it all in PHP (possibly easier for me) and maybe there's a way to manage them from the backend?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
