Data Assist - only admin?

Data Assist - only admin?

Just bought Data Assist and I was wondering something. Are the pages that are created only for the backend (admin)? For example, adding items, deleting items, updating items, etc. The other pages (results, detail) seem like they can be viewed by others but there's a delete button included with the data so I assumed its back end as well.

How would I go about creating pages with data assist and the pages being front end?

No, it's not just for admin. Admittedly, it is the most useful aspect of data assist, but you could also use it for front end where users can enter data into a database, say something like a contact form, or a forum type site. Anywhere you need a form to be honest.

What ever you use it for, it is a useful tool though. It's very rare I have any trouble with it, and the pages it creates in minutes take me hours in dreamweaver.

Just to add to my previous post... you could also use it to very quickly create a results page, a search facility with search results, and an article detail page. So, it's not just for entering data into a db.

I prefer to build my own versions of these front end pages though as I really can't be bothered to mess with the resultant css, but I think that's where site assist pro comes into its own. you create your design with that, and then share it with data assist (somebody correct me if I am wrong)!

Data Assist - Front End..how?

I'm able to create admin pages using Data Assist...how do I create the output pages? Do I do it the same way, but leave out xxxx_delete.php, xxxx_insert.php, etc. ?? I'm still getting familiar with it.

Thanks,
Craig

Basically if you didn't want to allow the user to delete, you would just leave out the delete page. If you are creating admin pages, you would want to add some security to the pages so that only admins can access the pages.
