This is my optimal scenario. It is a nursery website with general information available to all members of the public. I'm ok with that bit
Then there is an staff section where stafff can login and add informtion about a pupil's progress thtat day
Then there is a parent section where parents can login and find informton about their children for that day.
I have seen that you can include a role based admin section as described here
My query is about the custom pages for the staff and parent sections. These pages woudl have to be written using php and wont just be part of some template. Can i add the new database tables that I need to the wordpress database? Can i use the wpdb databsae object with my new tables?
I am presuming the answers woudl be yes to these questions. Where would i put the php pages for the parent/staff section? Would they just be relative to public html?
Thanks in advance. I'm not really that comfortable wth wordpress
