Project Description

I think the job can be done within an hour from a Drupal expert.

My estimation is based on my own experience with SimpleHTMLDOM and the fact that I can provide the new code snippets to get the same data as before.....

Should it take much longer and you can explain why then I would pay the additional effort voluntarily if it does not mean 1000% increased effort. You can check my ratings, I want to get a good job and not to squeeze the last penny out from developers.

The job is:

A module was created using simpleHtmlDom Library to parse a remote website (respectively pages on GooglePlay Store) and store the parsed html content (HTML and images from apps) in the drupal database in about 10 fields and the images from the google play store in the file system. The module is a 14k file .

It has worked without problems some months.

Only current problem:

The (HTML Structure) of the remote website has changed and the DOM selectors from SimpleHTMLDOM are not working any more. For instance: The DIV ID "AppIcon" is now the DIC ID "MainIcon" for instance.

I have already found out how the new selectors have to be applied to get the content again, but I am not good enough in Drupal to fix the code myself.

So I could provide all selectors and the simpleHTMLDOM Syntax to fetch the necessary data (and the array of images) and you would have to find the lines in the code where to replace the old selectors with the new selectors and maybe make some small modifications to make the module work again. But I think there should not be any additional programming necessary..... Maybe only the image arrays could require some modification..... To parse out some html......

Changing the lines where the selectors have to be applied should be it......

So best case is the job means replacing about 10-15 lines with new code I can provide.

Worst case: Additionally you have to adapt a loop that uses an array of images to make sure I get the same format as before.......
