Custom Wordpress Settings Page Help


I am converting my website that sells digital products from straight HTML and PHP to a Wordpress template to make it easier for me to manage. I have added three custom Settings Pages to show me my current users, retitle requests, and cancelled accounts. The info for these pages is being pulled from Mysql tables.


On my retitles settings page, I have an area that shows the status of the retitle request. The status is wrapped in an anchor tag. The idea is to click on the status and be taken to a page WITHIN THE WORDPRESS ADMIN AREA that shows just that one retitle request and allows me to update the status of the request. I am having a hard time making that work. Im pretty sure that I need to include the id of the retitle into the url and use $_GET['id'] to pull the id from the url and call the item from the table. Im just not sure on how to get that page to appear within the Wordpress Admin Area.

Im not sure if this even makes sense or if its capable of being done.
