For those with a need to look at the pure contents of the WordPress database. The plugin gives admins a user friendly and safe way to display the tables of the database as well as show the detailed information of the tables and view each row of data including rows in other tables referring to the displayed row.

Functionality for filtering and sorting makes it very easy to get a good overview and find specific data. Integration with other parts of the administration tool makes it quick and easy to browse and examine various entities in the database.

This is not a replacement to having access to the WordPress database but it provides several benefits:

  • Developers can get a quick way to view and verify database contents without having database access.
  • Overview pages with clickable links to navigate is a lot faster than typing SQL (at least for me).
  • Access to tables is verified against the current user access rights, should be safe.
  • Quick access to basic table column statistics.
