The ExpressDB Shortcode plugin lets you easily add data capture forms that work with the ExpressDB cloud database service.
In WordPress, a shortcode is a placeholder for a bit of content that will be generated dynamically. The ExpressDB Shortcode plugin takes the data fields you specify and creates the HTML for your form. Fields are rendered in the order text, textarea, and then checkboxes. The plugin provides some default styling, but web designers can also modify the styling to be applied by adding their own Cascading Style Sheets code.

The idea behind this plugin is to automate the creation of the form in much the same way ExpressDB automates the creation of an online database. ExpressDB is a product of Caspio Inc., the cloud database company. ExpressDB offers a 30-day free trial, allowing you to experiment before you buy. Once you create your account, ExpressDB provides a simple 2-step process for creating a database, which will then capture any data you post to it — without making you fuss with database configuration or database table design. You can also elect to receive an email notification whenever someone fills out your form.
