We have a real estate website that we need to have automatically populated with listings data which will come from a CSV file feed. The theme we're using is demonstrated here:
[url removed, login to view]
We have a premium CSV importer plugin and we've also tried using freely available CSV import plugins, but we're having issues getting the CSV file to import and correctly map to the custom post types used by that real estate theme.
We need you to modify either the plugin and/or the theme to allow us to simply and easily integrate our daily updates (via CSV) in to our website. We will handle parsing the CSV file and the FTP uploads of both the CSV files and the JPG image files - both the CSV data and the JPG image files need to be correctly imported within the theme's custom post types in order for it to display correctly.
We're also looking for help getting the search functionality within this theme to work a little bit better to fit our needs (narrowing down city searches instead of states.) We will also consider possible solutions to help streamline the CSV downloading (from it's source) and it's parsing and import within the site, though these tasks will not be required.
We need this job done as quickly as possible. We'll want a fully functional and working demo - we will provide access to our test server. We will then install and test on our live website. We will likely arrange for future work and support with the winning applicant.
We know that a qualified professional will be able to complete this job quickly and in a small number of hours - the theme is already very well coded, as are a number of available plugins to handle the CSV functionality. We simply need the right person to sync up the pieces of this puzzle as quickly, professionally and affordably as possible.
We will only consider coders with very good reviews and a clearly demonstrated experience with Wordpress and these types of jobs. Please do not apply for this job if you're not qualified for it - we won't be taking the time to weed through a bunch of unworthy applicants.
A final summary:
1.) You must be able to change the real estate theme that we have as well as one or more existing CSV plugins to allow our CSV feed and JPG images to work within the custom post types and overall functionality of the Openhouse real estate theme as linked above at themeforest.
2.) You can NOT use any pirated or stolen code.
3.) We need the search functionality of this theme modified to allow searching by cities/areas within Michigan, as opposed to all states.
4.) Only highly rated expert coders will be considered for this job.
5.) Final winner will be chosen based on their ratings, their quote and the promised speed of deliver.
If you're a solid Wordpress expert, we will have LOTS of work for you, both short term and long term. We look forward to hearing from you.
