Many Web sites need admin pages to manage data records stored in a database and perform common operations like listing, adding, updating, and deleting records.

The admin pages tend to follow the same pattern when it comes to functions and design. Therefore you can create these admin pages faster if automated tools can generate them.

Read this article on how the AutoBackOffice tool can help you create admin pages faster with all the features you need.

Why You Need a Better Solution to Create Your Web Site Admin Pages

Are you PROUD to be a REAL PHP programmer? But how do you create the admin section of your Web site?

If you do not want to know the whole story, go to AutoBackOffice.com and be amazed!

I get so frustrated when a customer doesn't understand the difference between a WordPress site with some plugins, and a real, made-from-scratch pure PHP/MySQL Web site.

We should do something to let the final customers know the difference! But for as much as we do not like WordPress, we must confess that it has two big advantages: one, it's perfect if you want to create a blog, and two, it already has the admin section in which any user, even somebody with no familiarity with a computer, can modify the Web site.

So my question to you would be: what do you do to create an admin section for your pure PHP/MySQL Web site?

Sure, if there is only one user accessing the website, and if (s)he is good enough, PHPMyAdmin and Adminer are GREAT products, but usually you do not want to let users modify EVERYTHING.

Imagine if somebody modifies the IDs of your records... Or if they DELETE rows that are not supposed to be deleted?

Or what about pictures? There is no easy way to upload a picture using PHPMyAdmin or Adminer, let alone resize them on the fly, or convert a PDF to a JPG, or to simply print the column name in a nicer way with a different name.

Until some years ago, I always used PHPMaker because of all the features, way better than any other products. Yes, I tried several Open Source solutions but they were, frankly, very ugly and hard to use.

But then PHPMaker became harder and harder to install, use and understand, let alone copy-protected and with a price tag of US$339.95.

Yes, PHPMaker is powerful. Yes, there are tons of advanced features. But when you need to change a SMALL thing, then it takes HOURS to change it, and usually your customer doesn't want or cannot pay you too much for a small adjustment in the admin section.

What Can be a Better Solution for Creating Admin Pages

When they released the 2020 version, I gave up, and I looked for a different solution, and here it is: ABO AutoBackOffice at https://www.autobackoffice.com/

It literally takes 30 seconds to install (well, if you can type your DB password fast, then even LESS than that :), it takes ONE CLICK (and about 2 seconds) to update the admin section if you change something in the DB, even if you add multiple tables and change multiple columns.

Here is a very short video to show you how fast is the tool to setup your admin pages.

There are also some powerful features like upload and resize images, including converting from PDF to JPG, plus the possibility of "pasting" the format of a column onto another one with a single click.

If you want to learn more about the features and how to use AutoBackOffice, you can download and take a look at the manual in PDF format

How Much Does AutoBackOffice Cost

Probably the best part is that it is FREE also for COMMERCIAL USE. And in case you need support, it's UNLIMITED for just 189$ at the time of writing: a SINGLE PAYMENT FOREVER, there is no subscription and it never expires.

And with the paid version, you get a free bonus: an option to AUTOMATICALLY create a PDF from your DB, so that you can print it and give it to the customer.

You know that delivering something on paper makes your Web site look more professional, but nobody ever wants to write the documentation. With ABO AutoBackOffice is done, for you, automatically, and it's only a click away.

How Can You Try AutoBackOffice to Start Creating Your Admin Pages Very Quickly

All you need to do is to go to AutoBackOffice download page, get the program and try it just by following the steps described in the short demonstration video presented above in this article.
