Okay, basically I have a fairly simple site with around 15 pages. But one of the sections contains information on people, and there are over 150 people in this database.
What I want is for http://www.site.com/people/ to show all the people, and then http://www.site.com/people/person_1/ to show their details, but as we are constantly changing the database, I don't want to have to create individual pages for each person.
I'm basically looking for a way to have these pages exist within a WordPress site, but pull the information from a separate database. I thought about just creating a separate directory /people/ and doing it all manually, but I want to keep the header/footer information from WordPress consistent throughout the site.
