I have invested many hours researching, testing, and purchasing (my mistake) extensions that I hoped would allow a front-end user to list, insert, update, and delete records in a simple table that is defined in the Joomla database. There are many* solutions that list and insert records, but none that perform the basic CRUD operations. That amazes me.

The situation:

--- I am not a PHP programmer.
--- I understand SQL.
--- I need this functionality for several tables.
--- It must be a front-end interface.
--- I will gladly purchase the extension.

For example, assume I have a database table named "interest_rate" with these fields:

--- id (auto-increment integer)
--- description (text)
--- current_rate (text)

I need a front-end interface that has a "Create Interest Rate" button (or link) and the list of existing records. Plus, a way to edit and delete a record. Basic stuff. Is this outrageously difficult in Joomla 2.5? If not, why can't I find extensions that accomplish it.

What am I missing?

Regards,

David Woosley

* I have evaluated and/or purchased lots of extensions, including: ARI Smart Content, RS Forms Pro, ContentBuilder, Phil Taylor's bfForm, BreezingForms, and others. Also, I have read dozens of blog entries that provide PHP code and other (workaround) solutions. Unless I'm being stupid, none of these things provide the required functionality.

Peter,

You are my hero. I will dance at your wedding and weep at your funeral, or maybe vice versa. I saw the Fabrik extension last week, but somehow missed its full functionality. It works like a charm. Thank you. I owe you one.

David
