Excellent simple but powerful and small DB tool for our swimming club
By , for WP 4.2.4

Excellent design. Very easy to get started with. Simple, and does what it says it will do without anything getting in the way. I described what I wanted to my colleague, went on plugins and hey presto this gem of a plugin was available. Don't hesitate if you need a really simple list based DB for a club or any group of people who need to maintain a list of people, items etc

Surprisingly useful and powerful. I suspect we are going to use it for other ideas to do with our club, now that we have seen how simple it is to use.

Saves my bacon

Hi I have used PD for many years finding it almost by accident but I have been able to build a member register online for a European Charity with tremendous support from Roland which as I am non-technical I could not have done without.

The plugin is a dream to use and I cannot recommend both the plugin and the technical support highly enough way beyond 5 stras.

User-side SQL
By , for WP 4.2.2

The "download CSV" shortcode has a hidden "query" field that accepts arbitrary SQL. Do not use this plugin unless you want your entire site owned, up to and including your database getting dropped. I'd be kinder, but... user-side SQL.

<input type="hidden" name="query" value="SELECT%20%2A%20FROM%20participants_database%20ORDER%20BY%20%60date_updated%60%20desc" />

Excellent plugin, great support

I have been using this plugin on a couple of sites for a few years now. It is full-featured and easy to use. On the few occasions that I had issues, the support was excellent. Thank you!

Exactly what I was looking for!
By , for WP 4.2.2

I'm a music theory teacher and I was looking for a database to store information about songs -- their various characteristics, etc. for easy searching during class. So for me, each "participant" is actually a song.

The support documentation is really excellent; I found answers to all my questions. The fact that css can be customized within the plugin (so as not to screw up the css attached to my theme) is a great feature.

is there a premium vers available
By , for WP 4.2.2

Hi there! Looks like a great plugin - thanks for the development - Just wondering: is there a premium version available and what would the differences be?

Also, what's the URL to your web site?


Very well designed
By , for WP 4.2.2

I'm using this plugin as a way of getting volunteers for a fundraiser into a database. It works very well, does require some setup but the end result is that once that is done it works. The automation is terrific. One of the better free plugins available.
