You should avoid manipulating the database tables directly from the
mysql client (e.g. PHPMyAdmin et.c) since there is a danger that you
can break something (you should only touch the tables directly if you
know what you are doing).
However, there are a number of ways in which you can add content to
your Syntax site.
a. You can add data from the 'data' tab in DBasis (should really only
do this for testing and debugging purposes).
b. Use the Context admin interface.
c. Create user input pages using the Syntax Input Layer of the SDK (or
I recommend that you read the documentation on the Input Layer to get
an overview on how to develop user input pages and custom admin pages
For more detailed understanding review the API documentation.
In particular you should familiarize yourself with the pxdb_input class
for rendering input forms, and pxdb_commit for saving user input into
the Syntax repository.
Hope that helps
