We have a Wordpress website that has a customised theme with a list of cars for sale ( wordpress posts).
We need to import data to the website from a CSV text file containing a list of cars and several urls with pictures to be uploaded from.
WE NEED A WORDPRESS PLUGIN
We need a custom made plugin to import data from a CSV file to the list of cars for sale in the site.
The import file will be uploaded by another party ( Autotrader ) to a local folder located in the server website files.
This data comes everyday and the pluging has to update the website data, importing that file, once a day.
The plugin will have a scheduling section where it can be set times and dates to read the file.
The pluging will have a section where to specify the naming conventiion of the file ( its text with a date )
The plugin will be able to do two types of updates: complete or incremental.
Complete updates, will replace all data in the database with what is in the file.
Incremental, will only add and modify cars provided in the file and leave the existing cars in the database as is.
The plugin will have an option to delete cars that have been sold ( status= sold ) that are older than an specified date ( months ).
The plugin will have a section with a table where the user can specify the meaning of each column and to what fields in the database will be mapped / associated to. This will allow the user to adapt the site to future changes in the CSV file format.
Finally, the plugin will have a section to create and restore backups of the list of cars.
I have attached a document where explains the format of the file that will be provided.
I need an estimate of cost and time to implement this.
PLEASE provide realistic quotes. Ask any questions if needed.
PLEASE provide examples and evidence of experience working with workpress.
We will choose the best 3 candidates for this job.
We will ask you to do a quick simple demo to prove your skills.
If you win the job, we will provide you with a document detailing the look and feel of the admin section of the plugin in wordpress and every detail to start straight away. It will be a very clear document and you will be able to start working straight away.
I appreciate your time and thank you for your effort.
PS: Above where it says "workpress" i mean WORDPRESS, my mistake.
