I think there is an issue with parameters in MySQLi and views. You can add a setting to turn off parameters in your SQL and it will build the SQL statement manually with mysqli_escape_string() instead. That will probably fix issue #3. The tree control in the advanced recordset dialog is broken in general, so I'm not too concerned about that immediately. I may have time to go in and fix it, but the Querybuilder is more powerful and can be used in its place, so I may decide to remove it as well.
