DaDaBIK 3.0 beta released!!

Hi all,
you have been waiting for one year but I think it is worth the effort :)
I'm proud to announce that DaDaBIK 3.0 beta has been released.

It's difficult to summarize here all the changes, the decision to change the major release from 2.x to 3.x is however due also to the fact that all the code (5000+ lines) has been revisited and in some part rewritten.

Among other changes:


  • The primary-foreign key feature is now complete: it is possible to link a field of a table (foreign key) to a number of fields of another table (containing the primary key). The produced HTML select menu will have the linked field values as "options" and the primary key values as "values". This allow to use a normalized DB design.

  • The speed of DaDaBIK in managing DB with a large number of tables is now dramatically increased.

  • "Export to CSV" feature

  • All the HTML code produced can be handle by the CSS file

  • It is now possible to order result records both in ASC and DESC.

  • "Delete all" feature


For the complete list of changes and bug fixes see the changelog.

As you can se we have also a new Web site and a logo, thanks to my colleague and friend Fausto Mazza (main at digiworx.it) for it.

Last but definitely not least: it is now possible to make a donation through Paypal. All you need to make a small donation and support the future developing of DaDaBIK is a Paypal account or a credit card. DaDaBIK has costed to me hundreds of hours and you can download it for free, so if you like DaDaBIK, do it!

New release

Hi all,
a new version of DaDaBIK, 2.2.1, is available; in this version:

Fixed bugs


  • When a record containing an image_file or generic_file field was updated without uploading a new file, the record loosed the link with the old file; this bug has been fixed.

  • When a user perform a search in a table containing an image_file or generic_file field the "browse" button was displayed by the browser for those fields, this behaviour makes no sense; this bug has been fixed.

  • The field names of the where clause in the update statements were not back quoted, consequently the update failed if the name of the primary key field needed to be escaped (e.g. a reserved word), this bug has been fixed.

  • The dutch version of DaDaBIK produced a parse error, this bug has been fixed.


New features

  • It is now possible to choose if you want to delete (both in the database and phisically) a previously uploaded file.

  • When two or more files with the same name are uploaded, a new name is assigned automatically (e.g. my_file.txt become my_file_2.txt if my_file.txt already exists, my_file_3 if also my_file_2 already exists and so on).

  • It is now possible to configure DaDaBIK to accept all files (regardless to the extensions) coming from upload.

  • Since DaDaBIK requires to set magic_quotes_gpc = on in php.ini (which is the default setting), now if magic_quotes_gpc is off DaDaBIK will stop and display an error message.

New release

Hi all,
a new version of DaDaBIK, 2.2.1 beta, is available; this version fix two bugs that affect the previous release:


  • The bug that caused the lost of the correct search results when the user click on a page number, supposed to be fixed in the previous release, is now completely fixed.

  • The version of the MySQL server is now correctly checked, in this way the "Your database is empty" bug, supposed to be fixed in the previous release, is now completely fixed.

A known bugs document is now available.
