    Arrow Need to Access another DB in WordPress

    Hi guys.. I have a WordPress Blog and occassionally would like to have access to a product database that resides as a different MySQL database than my WordPress DB. To be honest, I'm not too familiar with WordPress, but I am proficient in PHP/MySQL, so....

    1) Is it possible to interact with a database that isn't the WordPress database, from within my wordpress blog?

    Thanks for any help and guidance.

    I should think that you just need to include another connect statement in wordpress's template header.
