All the Admin forms are located in the same folder in admin/inc/forms/.

Each table uses 3 forms:

  • table-create.php
  • table-edit.php
  • table-delete.php

where "table" is the sanitized name of your table.

All the actions (database recordings) are done in the same files after validation.

There's 2 different cases:

  1. If your query fails
    (you see the ugly alert message Error while recording after posting the form)

    • In development mode (on localhost), you should already see the error details with the SQL query

    • In production mode (on production server)

      Find the following block in your form file:

      if (ENVIRONMENT == 'development') {
          $msg_content .= '<br>' . $e->getMessage() . '<br>' . $db->getLastSql();
      and replace == with !== Then post your form again and the SQL query will be shown.

  2. If your query is successful

    To show the MySQL query sent by a form you just have to add the following code to the form
    just after the code where the query is sent:

    echo $db->getLastSql();
