I have a wordpress site that has a custom post type "Actor".
I can add Actors via the Wordpress admin backend.
However I also need to periodically import Actor data from an xml file. So some Actors will be created manually via Wordpress backend, others via parsing of an xml data feed.
The xml feed is updated periodically and I would want to run the script via cron perhaps whereby it would delete all Actors previously created via xml and re-populate with the new data. Maybe it wouldn't need to delete all previously imported Actor data but check for that which has changed? What ever is simpler here. It would need to leave the manually created Actors intact and only look at those previously created via xml.
The xml feed contains paths to images, audio and video files as well as text-based information. I'm thinking that images should get written to the local webserver but that audio and video can be served from the remote server, the source of the xml data.
I don't need any template work - just the development of a plugin that parses the xml, writes the data as custom post type 'Actor' and allows for updating via xml.
I can supply an example of the xml feed as required.
