    Hi Jim,

    thanks for your post.

    Unfortunately, WP-Table Reloaded can not be used with other external database tables. It can only use tables that are stored in its custom format in the “wp_options” table of the WordPress database.

    Now, if you already have your data in a separate database, it might actually be easier to just use that manually, i.e. with a custom PHP/mySQL solution. While this will not give you the possibilities to edit the tables in the WordPress Dashboard directly, you can still add the sorting/search/pagination features to the table (if that’s what you want), by manually adding the DataTables JavaScript library (www.datatables.net).

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Tobias,

    Many thanks for your fast and informative response.

    I’ll have a look at your suggestion.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    of course 🙂 WP-Table Reloaded is not (and can not be) the best solution for everything related to tables, so if someone has a question/problem, where a different solution is possible, I’ll gladly share my knowledge 🙂

    Best wishes,
    Tobias

    Hope you don’t mind me mentioning this here but I have created a dashboard plugin which allows the editing of tables in other mySQL databases http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/edit-any-table/
