Ok sounds interesting.. is it possible to also create an add-on in the admincp with allows you to add/edit/save the data to/from the other database?
The reason im asking is that the second database will have quite a lot of data (thousands of records) so im trying to decided if its better to
1. Have it in a seperate database with its own backend and pull it into a xenforo page
2. or Try to integrate it into xenforo as an add-on and put the data in the same database xenforo uses,
Which solution would be best performance wise? Im just trying to work out the best direction to take
It would be custom add-on just for my needs - I would be able to manage the data from the second database, edit/add/delete records from the admincp etc, then be able to display that data in a xenforo page based on certain custom queries
