Project Description

Hello,

We need a competent programmer that has experience in
developing a Craigslist Scraper and can also work with
a Backpage Scraper. We have the scraper already
built, but we will need the following modifications to it:

Please don't apply for this job if you don't have experience
with Craigslist Scrapers. Also please understand that we
only have the setup application file and not the source
code. So I'm not sure if you can decompile this or not.

If you think you can decompile this, and you are familiar
with C++ or VB (not sure what this is programmed in), then
please consider bidding for this job.

Here is what we need done:

1.) Remove and disable the Username and Password feature
which means removing and disabling the Enter Registration
button on the lower left of the screen.

This image will show you what I mean:
[url removed, login to view]

2.) The second issue we're having is with the add wizard
feature of the built-in bulk emailer. Right now it supports
[url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view] and hotmail.com. I need you to leave
[url removed, login to view] alone, but remove [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view] and
add the [url removed, login to view] drop-down option.

This image will show you what I mean:
[url removed, login to view]

3.) After you add the [url removed, login to view] drop-down option to the
bulk email feature of this program, you will need to
permanently add and embed these settings into the program:

[url removed, login to view]
Port 25
SSL Unchecked

This image will show you what I mean:
[url removed, login to view]

However I'll need you to validate these settings are
correct by going to this page:
[url removed, login to view]

4.) I would like a "catch all domain" feature
where we can add any domain we choose in the future to
the drop down list, in case we find a new free email
provider we are happy with. We would also be able to
enter and save our own custom SMTP settings which
includes allowing us to manually enter the Port and
SSL options for any domains we add.

5.) After you validate these settings, I will need you
to use the bulk email feature of this program to send
a test message to the [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view] and the
catch all domain feature you just setup. You can use
any free email provider you want to test the catch all
domain feature.

This is a 2 hour job for a competent programmer. We are
willing to pay $[url removed, login to view] for this work, or $[url removed, login to view] for
this job, so please keep your bids around $60.00.

We need a programmer to do all the above, and also work
with us on future changes to this script as necessary.

This job should be easy for someone who knows what
they are doing and is familiar with the operation of
Craigslist Scrapers.

If you PM me, I can send you the program to look at.

Good Luck,
Brian
