What kind of data is stored in the db for the static site?

You can also use the wpdb class to use a secondary database if you wish.

Have a look at this

I'm converting a homegrown site, not written by myself, to WordPress.
The site consists of a bunch of static HTML pages and some PHP pages.

The PHP pages grab data from a DB and display the data, stuff like that,
nothing to serious.
Currently I've created a page for every old PHP page and by using shortcodes
I call the necessary function to display the data.

Am I on the right track or is there a better solution?
