Hi, I would like to know if my phpmyadmin could be activated with grid edit, because I find it very usefull to edit just 1 field at a time,


Currently: The PHPMyAdmin uses Inline Edit, which I find quite annoying to be used to edit a big table with many fields,


Hope somebody could help me out? This might be a very general quesstion, but I could not find it in Google, My apologies for being newbie,

But you can edit separately by clicking "edit" instead of "edit inline". Or you can edit multiple entries by selecting them on the left and clicking "edit" down the botom.

Yes, I can do that, but most of the time, I just want to edit 1 field at a time, grid edit make me feel at home, if I click edit, it will be overkill because it will open the whole new page to edit all the field and quite troublesome if I only want to edit 1 field,

Take a look at "Creative Vision", I can edit it on the fly

I just had a quick google and didn't find anything. Like I said TBH I had never even heard of it... Sorry I can't help. Perhaps it's worth asking upstream (PHPMyAdmin devs)?

I think Adminer's editor provides that feature. Nice installation instruction you can find at

I have used it once and I found it as a great alternative to phpMyAdmin. Plus it is lightweight, only one php file.

FWIW we dropped PHPMyAdmin for Adminer for v14.0 anyway...
