WP Data Access


WP Data Access is a powerful data administration, publication and development tool. An intuitive interface helps to create responsive tables and charts for back-end and front-end usage in just minutes. Highly customizable CRUD pages are generated on the fly. No programming skills required.

The plugin supports more complex features for advanced users, including remote database and file access, master-detail pages, lookups, inline editing, advanced search options, dynamic hyperlinks, WordPress media library integration, WordPress role management integration and many more.

I've been using the Premium version of WP Data Access for over a year now. It's used to manage a public directory of over 10,000 entries. I'm thoroughly impressed by the power and simplicity of this plugin. It's incredibly versatile, and the support provided by the developer is fantastic. WPDA does the jobs of several expensive plugins, and does them very well, for much less. Peter is very responsive to inquiries, and extremely helpful when it comes providing solutions for every challenge I've been able to throw at him. I wish all plugin programmers were as passionate. WPDA is constantly being improved and updated, and in just the past year I've seen the plugin grow considerably, often implementing new features and changes that I and others have requested or suggested.

Unable to search entire database for a string. Can only search a single table at a time. Would be useful to also be able to export the database and download it directly from wp-admin, rather than setup a backup to file.

Excellent and reliable work and support even in the free version. This plugin is a must for working with your database, saving you precious time. Thank you Passionate Programmers for your work!
