This is the only plugin that allows access database and edit/delete table from the WordPress dashboard. Thanks to the developer.

This plugin has everything you need to manage tables (wp and your own) and publish them. It allows you to pre-publish data under user role control and then to make it available on your website in different formats using shortcodes. We use it to manage a data which changes on a weekly basis (pickleball ladder tournaments). It is ideal for this project. Truly an environment which allows you to create an application without having to worry about re-inventing the wheel. No hesitation in recommending it to anyone willing to experiment and learn.

A great plugin served by a hyperactive and sympathetic author who listens to your needs! Clean and rigorous documentation and tutorials. A real academic job! WP Data Access is the only serious solution I have found to meet my need to set up a data management application under WP without coding. To be tested and used without moderation!`

Works perfectly. It really helped me out with database edits since my client's phpMyAdmin was inaccessible. Thanks again for an amazing plugin!
