The WordPress User Data kit allows you to store anything you want to online

You can:
  • Store data globally for access within all games or
  • Save data for a specific game only
  • Sort your data into categories and fetch data by field, category or the entire game
  • Request all info you currently have about the player including all data from all games...
  • Request all non-game-specific data you have about the player. For instance his dog's name, custom avatar URL or phone number. Anything you chose to save globally inside some game.
  • Upload images from your game to your website and fetch back the public URL at any time

This means it is now possible for you to check what other games of yours the player has and even update the player's settings in one game from within another! "Did you buy the Prequel? Excellent, thank you. Here is 5000 extra Gold". Or the other way around... "Thank you for buying the prequel. I see you already have the main game also. Excellent. I have now unlocked a secret character in the main game"


Beginner friendly

The Wordpress User Data system is built on CML meaning it already comes with many, many powerful search and filter functions but now includes a number of wrapper functions with game specific, easy to identify function names to help people who don't know CML to get started quickly. Once you have read the included CML documentation and are ready to access your data directly you will then have a bunch of extra functions to simplify your life even more and in some cases now have you multiple ways of getting to your data.

FREE BONUS

Originally planned as a completely separate kit, Pro Mode has been added free of charge for all new and existing customers!
Enable Pro Mode by setting a single static boolean to true. As an added benefit of no longer needing the entry level wrapper functions, you are able to write much cleaner code and in most cases much less code. Enabling Pro Mode changes the format in which the data is delivered to allow you even more fine grain access over your data. Think of CML as XML on steroids and consider each step up as having more direct access to each node and having better search and filter functionality becoming available!

Data and data types

Because it runs on CML, which is part of MBS Core, it means you can store any data you can turn into a string (for example by using their respective ToString() methods) online and when you fetch your data back from the server MBS Core's FromString() methods run in the background so you can use your saved data as typed variables, formatted back into (thus far) int, long, float, bool, Rect, Vector2, Vector3, Color, Quaternion and, of course, string.

Store any value! Keep it online and out of the hands of the cheaters... Gold, score, health, experience, tower upgrade level... whatever values you want to store, now you can!

Some extra features to take note of

  • Install the plugin once and you are good to store data for all your current and future games
  • This kit requires zero configuration. Just install the plugin and start calling the static functions. That simple.
  • Includes comprehensive documentation explaining the available wrapper functions
  • Includes a dashboard interface which lets you see and modify all data of all users who is saving data on your server
  • Save and retrieve data to your own account: Player data
  • Save and retrieve data shared by all players: Game settings
  • Update and fetch limited data from other people's accounts: Authoritative server access

    Great Solution For Storing User Data from and to your game via a WordPress Website - Great asset for storing game data of your users from your game centrally, easy to install and use, don't forget you need the Login asset from this author installed and setup first before you can use this asset but it’s a part of an online game solution for handling users and users data like high score or player crafting materials or anything you want from a centralised point and being able to call it and save it back to the server (WordPress website database) makes it a very useful and great addition for any online game in my opinion. Big five star asset. And when support is needed it is fast and professional highly recommended.

    Simple Awesome Data Backend - In my professional life, I work as a SQL Server DBA/Developer and so the ability to add a database backend to my game projects is a subject near and dear to me. I tried a couple of methods in get some sort of data passthrough from connecting to a SQL Server directly (slow, don't do it) to a web service in the form of a WCF (Faster, but lots of work) and until I found this package I was prepared for a mountain of work just to get some sort of persistent remote database support active in my game. Then I found Wordpress User Data which is extremely simple to set-up and after some acclimation to how the package wants you to code data CRUD, I was saving literally everything game related to my little self hosted Wordpress/MySQL WAMP stack. It was glorious. The author puts a lot of passion into this group of packages and offers stellar support. I'm a DBA and prefer to use this over my own solutions. It really is that good.

    Great addition to the set - After trying the wordpress login script, it is natural to want to use the wordpress database to not only handle users, but to store data. This plugin does that and it does it well. Thank you for developing this!

    Another super easy and a goto tool for saving user data. TOP NOTCH DEVELOPER!! - A review on how great this tool is for user data could never do it justice in how much time it will save you let alone make your project all the better with the ability to save the user data. Lots of features and again like the Login asset you have the source code to extend it if you need. I can't say enough good things about these tools. They are great and the dev puts a lot of care and effort into making these tools amazing. They are active on the forums and provide updates constantly so your getting some great support. If you already like easy and using wordpress, might as well continue with that easy to use perfect solutions and get this and the login asset to compliment your wordpress. Thank you for not only creating such a great tool but providing amazing support and upgrades all these years!!!!!!!!!!! TOP NOTCH DEVELOPER!!

    Ridiculously easy to use and has a passionate developer - I wasn't sure how difficult it was going to be to store data online for my games, but everything can be done in 3 lines of code with this. It's just too easy. I did run into a little trouble with my server not accepting the content of my cml, but this was due to error on my end, and the developer was quick to respond to my emails and helped to fix my issue, as well as explained the workings of the plugin in depth.

    Love it - I work as a DBA professionally and I've been looking into developing my own solutions for connecting Unity to a Database. This package does all that work for you and with some tinkering and rethinking how I want to store data, I was able to create a fully functioning character and inventory database for my game project in just a few days. If you're looking for a database plugin for your game, this along with Wordpress Login is all you'll need.
