Presents the results of a database query in a table. The query can be saved as a view which can then be embedded in any post using a shortcode. Views
A Yes. Use arg1 and arg2 to pass the arguments.
For example, to embed the results of this query:
select * from cities where country=%s and population > %d
[dbview name='world cities in country' sort=city order=asc pagesize=10 arg1='United States' arg2=5000000]
By using a link
<a href="?action=dbview&verb=autoLoad&name=NameOfView">my link</a>
An easier way is to insert a PHP snippet in a column in the first table:
return DBView::link($value, "name-of-dbview", optional-arg1, optional-arg2);
The loaded table replaces the existing table.
By invoking some PHP using another plugin such as 'Post Snippets' to load dbview and pass the appropriate argument.
For example to get the current user and display a table that shows that users information.
$u=wp_get_current_user(); echo do_shortcode("[dbview name='show user' arg1=$u->ID]");
The corresponding SQL stored in 'show user' is:
select ID, user_login, user_email, user_registered, user_status from wp_users where ID=%d
Assuming the image URL and the link URL are in separate columns in the table, it's necessary to concatenate the two URLs so as to not create an extra column in the view that is not wanted.
For example this SQL concatenates two URLs:
select id, concat('https://www.google.co.uk/images/srpr/logo11w.png', ',','http://www.google.com') as link from wp_posts limit 2
And this PHP snippet extracts the two URLs from the single column 'link':
$a = explode(",",$value); return "<a href='".$a."'><img src='".$a."' /></a>";
Include the file (or the contents of) dbview.css into your theme.
At present, there is no way to hide columns.
Because the properties of each dbview are stored in the wp_options table which is cached for each session.
