    hey there

    Is this possible with wordpress:
    1.Let wordpress act as the front end to a mysql database, with read only access for clients
    2. Also let staff add new stuff to the mysql database through wordpress.
    3. let me administer both and create a rich looking site so both get what they want.

    I am unsure if you can do this, advice anyone?? Hope this makes sense

    What you're describing is exactly what WordPress already does.

    However, it uses its own database schema for that. Try installing it on a test server or your own computer and see how it works.
