Database plugin? (3 posts)

    Hi,

    Does anyone know of a database plugin that will let me easily pull in the content of a database and display rows in my wordpress pages/templates using a PHP "template" for each row - and also allow editing of these rows using a simple form in the admin view?

    I would rather not have to roll my own of course... and I'm not sure (though I haven't checked) how hard it would be to create an admin page for such a plugin that lets you locate records and edit them as a form.

    I'm not sure what you are trying to do, but I recommend you just phpMyAdmin:

    If you can be more clear about what you want to generate, then we can be more specific.

    If you want more control over how you view and access your posts within the Admin Panel, try this plugin:

    OK for example. I want to implement a simple online store that is rendered as a WordPress page. I want to create a mysql DB that stores product info including stock levels. My page will render "out of stock" if stock level is zero.

    I was just wondering if there was a plugin for WordPress that would let you edit simple SQL tables in the admin view, using a form to show the fields of each row - i.e. input boxes for text fields, checkboxes for booleans ("Out of stock [ ]") etc.

    I dont' mean I want an off the shelf e-commerce package, I just wondered if there is a nice WP plugin for generically editing basic SQL databases. It would be nice. I can use standard PHP tools of course, but integration with the WP admin console would make things much easier in terms of user authentication etc.
