Maybe I am just not grasping the concept of WP right here but why is everything in Wordpress stored as a post of some type? I have a custom set of tables that house hundreds and thousands of items. I would like to programatically create a navigation menu that dynamically updates items to reflect my custom tables. I haven't been able to find a way to do this without using the following function:
To my understanding this function stores the item in the array in the wordpress tables as posts/taxonomies? This is needless overhead in my case and looks pretty permanent. My menu items will change pretty much on a daily basis, I don't want to grab items from one table only to have them stored in another table.
Does anyone know how I could directly update the navigation menu each time the homepage loads without requiring any interference from the administration panel?
