I'm making an plugin to manage, say, Recipe. I created a table containing informations about my recipes. I'v created a custom post to add recipe, I know how to add meta box to the post to enter infos stored in my table. But how can i use some of the informations of my table in the list of my Recipe Custom Post in the admin panel. How add a join with my table in the query retreiving the posts.
