I have a very complex page (Multiple Ajax calls and access to other three other mysql databases) that i would like to create within Drupal or find a way to embed it into Drupal. Now I do not want Drupal to manage the page, i would only like to just pull the header, navigation and footer from Drupal and manage the "content" with my own code manually. In Wordpress this is very easy to do but in Drupal it does not seem to be straightforward. What is the best way to accomplish this in Drupal.
can custom modules handle that? can views handle that? what are my best options?
Note that i just want to know if it is possible and how do i embed my own code into Drupal without having Drupal manage the code.
