Edit Any Table

A WordPress plugin/Dashboard Widget that allows you to connect to any database and edit the contents.

  • To install, download the .zip file, extract the contents and place the edit-any-table folder in your plugin directory (typically \your-site\wp-content\plugins)

  • Once installed go to the Dashboard->Plugins page of your WordPress site and activate the plugin.

  • Now go to the Dashboard->Settings->Edit Any Table page and enter the required details.

  • First you will need to enter the host (often localhost), the name of the database you wish to connect to and a valid user name and password.

  • Under Admin Settings you can choose to allow Administrators only to have access to the widget or Editors as well. Note: If neither of these boxes are ticked the widget will not display in your WordPress Dashboard.

  • Display Settings allows you to select the maximum number of columns to display for returned searches. Edit Any Table displays best in a single column dashboard configuration and I find five columns is a comfortable fit but adjust to suit.

  • Also here you can set a friendly name for the database you are connecting to (less confusing for your users)
