WP Data Access


We are currently completely rebuilding our code base and switching to an intuitive App Builder with a new Table Builder and a new Form Builder. The new App Builder does not yet contain all features available in the old tools, but the features that are available are much easier to use and most options are applied to tables and forms in real time. More features will be added within the next month.

Create professional responsive data tables within minutes. An intuitive table builder supports many features on mouse click and layout and behavior changes of almost any element of a DataTable through an advanced options section. Data tables are based on the famous DataTables plugin for jQuery supporting any database table size.

Use the form builder to create highly customizable data apps for back-end and front-end. Customization is supported through templates, supporting many features like master-detail pages, lookups, inline editing, advanced search features, dynamic hyperlinks, WordPress role management integration and many more.

Manage data and databases with the user-friendly Data Explorer or use the Query Builder to write SQL queries from the WordPress dashboard. Remote database access to MariaDB and MySQL is available for all versions. Premium users can access foreign databases like SQL Server, PostgreSQL, Oracle and MS Access through our premium proxy server and auto sync CSV (including Google Sheets), JSON and XML files.

I was trying to move my “database” from spreadsheet to Wordpress and learning to use this plugin and explore the possibility. The staff provide very good support to me when I get stuck on somewhere.

Absolutely brilliant but one thing I would say is, you need to have a good working knowledge of databases and SQL to leverage the features of this program. I still have some bits and pieces to learn but WPDA has quickly taken me to a place far beyond where other plugins have failed. Easy to use and very customisable. Support for this product is superb. Quick and accurate responses. What more could you ask for?

Once you learn the process, it is easy to create a data application. I tried it for 2 weeks then bought the single license and will probably buy the life time licence. Finally, an easy tool for beginners to build and publish data applications to their websites.

I’ve been working with WP Data Access for several weeks now, and have to say that I am very impressed. It is complete, in that so far it has every feature I need to present users with a robust data access app to our custom database for the WordPress site. And the plugin and its design have been very well executed. I don’t know the main plugin author, Peter, but I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to hire him to work on any of my WordPress sites. The quality of the work here has been that good. I dearly wish all WordPress plugins were developed with so much thought and care. To top it all off, the support is outstanding. Kim is very active here, and obviously works closely with Peter to get people the quick answers they need, being patient even with my dumb questions. As my project has progressed, I found that I needed the features of the premium version of the plugin and have signed up with a Lifetime license. But this is one plugin that even if I didn’t need those premium features, I’d pay anyway to support its development and give my support. Well done, Passionate Programmers! And thank you!

Needing to rewrite URLs on our website, I found WP Data Access to be absolutely fantastic! In the past, I had to dump the database to a 400MB text file, edit it and re-import it. With fingers crossed. This plugin makes it immensely easier to do a search and replace on tables. Aside from the plugin being extremely well designed, I also had need to contact their tech support and I found them to be absolutely great. I should add that I found the issue I had was due to insufficient DB privileges, and not to any fault of the plugin itself. I couldn’t be happier with it.
