External SAEF v1.0.1 (Free)


The External SAEF module lets you use a form on an ExpressionEngine template to insert a row into any database table — whether into your EE installation’s own database or into any to which you have administrator access. It may help you integrate EE with other MySQL-based systems, such as a commerce platform.

For more information, and an important warning, see the docs.

If you need to insert data into a database without an entry form, see the External Entries plugin.

Would love to see this compatible with EE 2.0. Any idea on when that might occur? (Hint, hint)

Vee, six months later, all I can say is I’ll get to it one of these days.

Adam, I’m using a local database. As soon as I use this module in my template, my page blanks out. Also I wasn’t sure where to install the module files, so I created a folder “external_saef” in modules. Any ideas? Thanks!

I think I figured it out. I added $DB to the global vars in the form function (line 42).
