Simple Table Manager


Simple Table Manager enables editing table records and exporting them to CSV files through minimal database interface from your wp-admin page menu.

  • Simply CRUD table contents on your wp-admin screen
  • Search and sort table records
  • No knowledge on MySQL or PHP required
  • Export table records to a CSV file
  • Not allow users to change the structure of the table

Unlike ‘full featured’ database management plugins, it does not allow users to alter the structure of the table but requires no knowledge on MySQL or PHP.

Similar to CakePHP’s scaffold feature, Simple Table Manager is an auxiliary tool suited for the initial development phase of a website. It is also ideal when you want to ask someone else with no database expertise to keep track of table records on your website (that was my motivation for developing this plugin at least).


  • View of all the records on a table
  • Detailed view to edit records


  1. Upload the entire simple-table-manager folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. On Settings of the plugin’s sub-menu, select the table you want to manage


How can I add a new table by using the plugin?

You cannot. Please use ‘full featured’ plugins if you need full access to the database.

As advertised, this plugin is great for a non-techy admin to create and edit data, and I recommended the plugin for this purpose. I used phpMyAdmin to setup the table and then used the plugin to create the initial set of records. There are no display facilities with the plugin so I a used a bit of custom code. Only 2 lines are needed to fetch the data into a php function: global $wpdb; $results = $wpdb->get_results( 'SELECT * FROM wp_mytable', ARRAY_N ); The plugin will allow access to only one table at a time, but its easy to switch between tables. Thanks for sharing.
