Been speaking with Ray and he told me about a handy function inside MySQi so he gave me the solution to use that function. here is the workaround in case anyone else wants to find out how to store all different types of data in the same database table (this is particularly useful if you have a one page website with different sections (such as about us, services, blog, testimonials, contact us) and thus all share same layout, eg a section header, section content...

<?php $rsSiteSettings = new WA_MySQLi_RS("rsSiteSettings",$sitedb,0);
$rsSiteSettings->setQuery("SELECT * FROM settings");
$rsSiteSettings->execute();?>

Note: the 0 at the end of the first line is important so that it returns all rows.

and for my example I am stored for SEO purposes the title and description tag in my database table
(using element to store the location and content to store...um..the content)

<title><?php

$rsSiteSettings->moveFirst();
$rsSiteSettings->findRow('settingselement','title');
echo($rsSiteSettings->getColumnVal("settingscontent"));

?></title>
<meta name="description" content="<?php

$rsSiteSettings->moveFirst();
$rsSiteSettings->findRow('settingselement','description');
echo($rsSiteSettings->getColumnVal("settingscontent"));

?>" />
