Hello All,   I am currently getting accustomed to Formidable Forms, however there is one hunch that I cannot seem to solve in regard to the WordPress PlugIn. I've created a database using the Formidable table view with columns listing name, last name, file upload, and more details. This database is supposed to list all scholarship recipients on our website with information about the recipients.   I'm having some trouble with the detail page and figuring out if there is a way to have this page linked to a completely separate existing page on our site. Essentially, if I was to have a column dedicated to more details and people were to click on it for each entry, instead of having it link to the detail page, could I have it linked to a separate page on the website for each individual entry? I would greatly appreciate any and all advice- thank you so much! If anyone needs any more clarification, please let me know!

Let me help you with a common misconception about Formidable Forms. You do not create databases with Formidable. You create forms to capture your entry data and views to display it. All data is stored in the tables defined in Formidable's database schema. The answer to your question is yes. Don't use the detail page and just create your own link in HTML. You can do this easily in the view editor.

If you want a unique wordpress page that isn't tied to the detailed page of a view specifically, I recommend creating a page with:
