Creating database for a user to uniquely store data

Creating database for a user to uniquely store data

(OP)
Trying to create a page within my wordpress site where a user can input gym records (what they lift) so that they can track their progress. I want them to be able to input their data which stores into a MySQL database, and also so that they can view/edit that information further on. Bit of a php/MySQL noob so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Liam.

Use custom fields

No MySQL needed because WordPress handles it, just a bit of WP coding in the_loop needed.

Hi Chris, thanks for the reply. It is as part of a uni project and has to meet specification of php/MySQL. Custom fields deemed 'too easy'.

Thanks for help
