Creating a custom Admin panel

The question:

I’m building a WordPress Plugin and it has two tables and some data.
Right now, for displaying and changing the data, I’m using the wpdb function and manually creating the user interface (mimicking the Default one).

However, I see that other plugins have a more consistent style with their tables and the same features (like the bulk button). I’m getting suspicious about WordPress Taxonomies. I read, but so far, taxonomies seems to be related to posts in a way or the other.

My data doesn’t relate to posts, it’s completely independent. Can I still use WordPress Taxonomies? Can the taxonomy help me build a consistent interface?

The Solutions:

Below are the methods you can try. The first solution is probably the best. Try others if the first one doesn’t work. Senior developers aren’t just copying/pasting – they read the methods carefully & apply them wisely to each case.
