A potential customer has a WordPress site & needs to add the capability to interface one or more web forms to a MySQL database on the web server.
Is this easy to do in WordPress? Is it possible (or desirable) to add custom php scripts to accomplish this?
How easy is it to do form field edits (for example, an email address must be formatted as a standard email, a telephone # must be in the standard format, etc.)?
Can WordPress be used to provide admin tools to allow reports to be generated from the database, to maintain admin tables, etc.
Any references to documentation that addresses these capabilities & how to accomplish them would be appreciated.
