Build additional Content Management Structures and Database Applications right into your WordPress Site.

== Description ==

DB-Toolkit is a plugin that enables you to build additional Content Management Structures and Database Applications right into your website.

You can build Capture Forms, Reports, your own plugins, Image Galleries, Sliders, Databases, staff management, Hotel Booking systems... Any Data based application.

By defining the kinds of data you are wanting to work with, you can create an almost endless range of content, manageable from its own interfaces and screens. Controlled by both backend (administrators) and frontend (public users) interfaces and forms.

DB-Toolkit is not a simple plugin and has a steep learning curve, but the results are very rewarding.

There will be a support area coming soon. I'll update with a URL soon.

I have a new Dev blog here:

Some Features

* Field-by-field data type handling makes data management very powerful and flexible.
* Data exporting in PDF and CSV.
* Create API's to connect to your data. This allows you to build mobile apps that feed from your content.
* Multi Interface Layouts using clusters.
* Build custom content managers, like galleries, contact lists, application forms, employee databases... and so on.
* Import data from an XML or CSV source
* Visually build forms that capture data to a database existing or not.

== Installation ==

1. Upload the plugin folder 'db-toolkit' to your `/wp-content/plugins/` folder
2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
3. Select DB Toolkit from the menu group

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

Q: Is there any Documentation?
A: Nope. I am working on it.

Q: When will you have an RC release?
A: Well you can technically use it now, however some things are still a little iffy (like cloned linking links) But it should mostly work on up to 3rd level interfaces.

== Screenshots ==

1. Build Database Management Interfaces and Viewers.
2. Interface and Application Management Screen.
3. An Interface built in DB-Toolkit to manage data.
4. Interface Config Screen (Lots of Options!).
