Contact Form DB
Database Layout (3 posts)

    I just noticed in my database that the primary column is called field value, and within this column are all sorts of various data such that calling up a certain row for display is pretty much impossible. Am I missing something? Why would the database be laid out like this?

    Why? Read this: http://cfdbplugin.com/?p=71

    How to query? In the Database Options page, you can turn on displaying of the query on the Database admin page that is used to query the data. Also see: http://cfdbplugin.com/?p=239

    Because Particpants Database overflows the boundaries of my template, and CF7DE has no CSS formatting. So I was going to simply use CF7DE for what it's good for ... sticking stuff into a database and performing reliably with its shortcodes ... and use my program to display the information. Good luck with that because the database for CF7DE couldn't be more wonky (even if there is a page in the user manual justifying the layout).

    So much for standardization.
