This plugin has a number of problems:

  1. It crashes when attempting a DATABASE_REPEAT
  2. The config overwrites every time you install
  3. The documentation is awful
  4. There is no way to execute an UPDATE
  5. It's inefficient; it loads a lot of code whether it's used or not.

All the above fixed. I also added %DATABASE_SQL which is a lot cleaner interface to getting stuff from the database!


Made some spelling corrections.
