Project Description

Wordpress Link Add or Delete in Bulk

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

I need a PHP script to add/delete Wordpress v2.2 blogroll links.

The script must be able to read links from a csv file. Format of the CSV file will be something like this:

[url removed, login to view],blogadmin1,adminpass1,F:/linkfilefoler/[url removed, login to view],category1
[url removed, login to view],blogadmin2,adminpass2,C:/linkfilefoler/[url removed, login to view],category2
[url removed, login to view],blogadmin3,adminpass3,D:/linkfilefoler/[url removed, login to view],category3
…..

Basically, each line is for one blog – installed on EITHER a domain OR a subdomain. Links for each blog is stored in a linkfile on a local computer drive.


The link file is a txt file in this format:

Link Text,URL
First Link,[url removed, login to view]
Second Link,[url removed, login to view]
Third Link,[url removed, login to view]
Best Search Engine,[url removed, login to view]
…….

Main functions of this script should contain:

(1) It should be able to delete all existing links and replace them with links contained in the linkfile, and assign them into the correct category.

(2) If the linkfile field in the CSV file is empty, the script should leave the existing links alone.

(3) If the linkfile is an empty file, which means it only contains a header row (Link Text,URL) but no links, the script should remove all existing links.

(4) It should also output script execution result on screen, such as SUCCESS, or FAILED – in which case it should output some basic error messages such as incorrect password, MySQL has gone away, no connection to MySQL etc. to help with diagnosis.


ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Please take a look at all attached 4 screenshots.

There are only 2 Wordpress MySQL tables are involved:

wp_links - Add link_url and link_name (link text)
wp_link2cat - Associate a link with a category_id

I will give the winning bidder access to a Wordpress v2.2.3 site, its MySQL database, and a CSV file for testing purpose.
