Great Documentation - Pity it doesn't work!
By , for WP 3.5.2

This plugin has very helpful and extensive documentation - which all amount to nothing since I couldn't get the thing to work.

It would not accept a Mysql database as source initially - and when I did get it to finally accept my settings, it showed the wrong database - which is a bit bizarre.

As to the query - both hand-input & the so-called visual designer - neither worked or even allowed me to save the query.

I've wasted a good 3 hours on this piece of rubbish and have to ask whether the developer actually tested it before advertising its presence.

Not working at all
By ,

Tried several times to add MySQL data sources using known credentials & localhost, wouldn't do a thing when I pressed the test button, then wouldn't save anything. Tried several times. I can query the db using other tools as well as phpMyAdmin, but this plugin just wouldn't do a thing. Then when I deleted the plugin, it didn't clean up after itself and left all the xdata tables in the db.
