Project Description

To write a PHP script to display a list of used cars from a .csv file and be able to SEARCH it too!


I have a .CSV file that is automatically updated with all of the details for a used-car dealership.

I am currently using it to import the cars into a wordpress website as a 'custom-post-type'. I can then search the cars based on their custom-taxonomy's and output the results using wordpress's own functionality.

But I currently have to manually put the .csv file through the wordpress system to create the posts every time the .csv file is updated. We need it to automate directly from the .CSV file.


As far as I can tell we have 2 options:

1. Create a better 'plugin' to automatically keep wordpress up-to-date with the .csv file.

2. Have a PHP script that references the .csv file and displays the cars' info but it MUST also be able to SEARCH the cars and display the results of the search.

See [url removed, login to view] for an example of the search form on the left hand side.


If you bid please PM me some basic indication of how you will approach this and if you have done something similar before.

I know what I want and I would prefer to pay a bit more for somebody to get it done quickly and properly rather than hash something together (I could do that much!)
