NOTICE: This Script is No Longer Supported

I developed this script some years back, before WordPress became so popular. In fact, I have now switched all my websites to use WordPress so I don’t even use this script myself. The last I checked, it should still work (not so sure about PHP7 support though, probably some issues) so if you are still developing by hand and need the features of this script, give it a try. But, I will not be updating it going forward.

About the phpAddEdit Form Generator Script

phpAddEdit is a menu-driven script that will allow you to generate forms to add and edit content in a MySQL database. Unlike other similar scripts out there, phpAddEdit allows your forms to handle multiple tables. It also has a rich feature set including instant setup, standard and custom form elements, validation (error checking – both via javascript and server-side php), CSS customization, javascript event support, robust layout options, customizable error and execute code, email and/or redirect on submit, dynamic element content, trackback support, automatic RSS creation (including auto pinging of blog directories), human verification, security features and more.

Why I Developed This Script

The simplest answer is that I couldn’t find another script with the features I wanted (if one exists and I missed it please let me know). I run several websites and I had a first-generation attempt to simplify and standardize my various content add/edit needs but, as with so many things, it developed ad-hoc over time and was a bit of a mess. So, with a new, more demanding project in the works I decided it might be worth investing the time to do it right. Then I figured if it works pretty well, why not share it with the world.

I am NOT a professional programmer or a web developer – merely a do-it-yourself webmaster with modest programming skills. So, I really am not making this script available for any kind of recognition or glory and I make no claims to the technical beauty of the code. But, if it can be of help to someone else then why waste all my effort on just myself.
