Dear Crosstech and other helpers of my question,

At you can view my website which I mainly created from a Joomla extension that translates a PHP-myadmin table. The following webpage is an example of 1 of the 950 records from a PHP-table:

Everything works fine, but for registered users there is a possibility to edit the content of that record at the front-end of the website, or to add a new record (plant species). And the form misses some features from my current joomla extension (joodb):

- By default it lists all the table columns that need to be answered in the form for a record. And I can't edit the template; so I can't write some comments or warnings to some fields.
- The form adapts by default to the datatype from PHP-myadmin: A listbox for ENUM-types, a multiple choice from SET-types, a required field-type for NOTNULL-value. But there is one important feature misses: There is one field that selects indexed records from another table: When I add or edit a record in PHP-myadmin I will have a dropbox of records from that other table, but this dropbox is not recognized by my current joomla extension. But this is an important problem to be solved because if I want to add the Pests of a PlantSpecies I need to be able to select the pests from a list. And that list should not be pre-devined as in a SET-datatype because if there a pest for a plant which is not in that list I need to open PHP-myadmin and manually edit the table structure and to add another SET-value in the list. While if the list is selected from another table: I can select it from there. And if I need to add another pest in that table I can do that on my website in the front-end instead.
