Inserting and pulling custom posts to and from a custom table
I've worked with a little php, but am by no means an expert. I've created a custom post type in which I'm going to use to store a list of names and emails. These aren't users, on a larger scale it's going to be used to extract who to send a dynamic email to.
In any case, I've gotten far enough that I have the custom post set up in admin, but I'm not sure how to save it into or pull from a separate table. I'm using meta_boxes as well to create custom fields for the entries. I would prefer to send all of this info to my custom table without it interacting with wp_posts or the wp_meta_posts tables. I know that this can be done with old fashioned MySQL commands, but I think it would be best take advantage of the already built in behaviors that posts have. I've come across many things on the web that recommend to just keep with those tables, but the tables (at least the wp_posts table) is already overrun with information from regular posts. Is there a feasible way to do this? Do I use the wpdb command to do so?
