Project Description

I need a simple PHP script created - possibly as a Wordpress plugin - which will scrape a 2 well defined tables of data from a source and paste that scraped table into two Wordpress pages. We have permission from the owner of the source website to pull their data once per day and paste it onto our website.

The source tables of data are accessible here:

[url removed, login to view]

[url removed, login to view]

We need just the data tables with all of their content and linking intact. The columns do not need to be sortable as they are on the source website, though this would be a plus.

We will have two standard Wordpress pages where this content will be pasted. This PHP script can either be run via a CRON job which we will setup, or it could be built into a Wordpress plugin, which is preferred.

All coders must demonstrate CLEAR understanding of this project and have strong english communication skills. To insure that, and to make sure that you're actually reading this entire project description - and not doing automatic bidding - you'll need to include the following details in your bid or PM otherwise you will not be considered for this job: 1.) Include your current location and the weather outside right now 2.) Give the exact day and time that you're making the post, converted to US Eastern Standard time. Again, this is REQUIRED so that I know that you can follow basic instructions and read and communicate clearly.

I've already received bids for this job from two other coders and I know that this job can be done for $250 or less. So I will not be considering anyone for this job for MORE than $250. The coder who communicates their expertise best and has the overall best proposal - not necessarily the cheapest price - will win this job.

Rush project, need it completed this week. No exceptions. Good luck!
