    HI,
    I like to add an external MySQL DB grid to a Wordpress 'Page' (not post). However I have problems to connect to the DB using Pearl but also with a standard method. Is it better to add another external page? How? PHP itself is working on the, say about page, but not the DB connectivity. Without WP on a normal php page, everything is working ok. I think the problem has to do with the path of the grid and the path of pearl (subdirectory).

    Does anyone has a working PHP snippets who works with WP 3.0+ I'm only interested with the DB connectivity at this time. It seems WP can't find the right path to the program and the external DB

    Thanks/R.

    P.S. On an external php page, the mysql connectivity and the db grid is working correctly
