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.

With WP DATA ACCESS, you can sort a table as an alphabet search. The helpdesk was super responsive. Letter 'A' gives the entries with 'A', Letter 'B' gives the entries with 'B'... We get the Pro version to get support en it has been a success.

This plugin, in theory is excellent - there weren't many plugins I could find that could connect & retrieve records from my SQL DB sitting on my remote virtual server. This plugin did it perfectly. The only issue i had was it took 30 seconds just to retrieve 1 record. However I do not know if the issue is with the plugin or my website. So i cannot blame this plugin without further info, however I didn't have time to do more extensive troubleshooting. In terms of customer service the team were amazing - they continued to troubleshoot the problem with me exhausting alot of options. They were patient and great service. In the end they were happy to give me a refund. Assuming your website doesnt pose any delays/issues, this plugin should work great for you.
