Project Description

I need some php software that can extract posted messages from a facebook group and drop the data into a database. (the idea is that I can execute the script on a cron basis and import any new messages into my database which I will then publish to my portal).

I would imagine that the facebook api would be used for this.

The group is here: [url removed, login to view]

I do not have admin access to the group, only member access.

I would like to be able to reuse this application in the future and for different groups.

I would imagine I would need two tables for the data with these columns.

TABLE 1 - stores the main data of the post
post_id (the id of the post)
post_date (date of the post)
post_title (title of the post)
post_message (the message of the post)
post_link (the id or the link to the post)
member_name (the name of the member)
member_id (the id of the member)

TABLE 2 - holds
post_id (the id of the post)
image_url (the url of the image)
image_order (the number of the order of the image)

I am hoping you can help me.
