As the title says, is there any option to save the data in different table in wordpress.

I have around 10000+ data in my site in a different table. I have moved this table inside wordpress database and i have created custom post and now I want to show the data from my own table not from wp_posts.

Any ideas, suggestion or example.

This had pretty big edit by anonymous user, which I rejected because it moved question away from original and answers. Please ask such as new question. – Rarst Aug 26 '11 at 9:42

Suggestion: move the data from the custom table into the wp_posts and wp_postmeta tables, as a custom post type.

It will save you a lot of effort, in the long run.

Ok, thank you. I will move it to wp_posts. – oniox May 30 '11 at 3:47
