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
