Let’s make working with “Ragic” and “WordPress” together, an even more popular option!!!
Here me out for a minute here!
I am using a popular WordPress theme for Real Estate and would like to easily get data (Listing Ads) from the company’s Ragic database (our management software), into the company’s WordPress website!
I am looking into options at the moment! However, can I suggest the creation of a “Ragic WordPress Plugin” that would be able to facilitate this as well as other WordPress post/page imports as well! It would have to interact with Ragic API, JSON or the CSV file for example, and would require the following features:
*Can autosuggest/populate field ID (Important)
*Can save import templates
*Can Schedule the Import
*Can update/delete existing records
*Field Mapping (not a must-have, as technically minded people can easily arrange the fields accordingly, prior to import)
*Supports Custom Post Types (I don’t need this, as “all post” can be treated the same, but it does make it easier when combined with a field mapping feature)
*Supports Custom Fields (I don’t need this either, as I can easily add the post fields beforehand, but it is handy/smart as it shows that pretty much everything has been covered as far as importing data goes)
*Can set Author the corresponding import field
*Can import image from URL and
I am sure that this kind of Plugin would help to promote Ragic within the WordPress community, for instance!
I know that there are some “free” options available, but they are unsupported, not regularly updated and so on… I also imagine that you may also not wish to encroach on what is being offered by way of the “paid versions”.
However, there are ways that you can get around this… For instance, you can make such Plugin, “Ragic only”, so that it can only be used for importing, and maybe even exporting too (as exporting is really no big deal), to and from super Ragi…
I hope you like my feature suggestion here, and I welcome others to support its development as well!
Till next time!
In serious anticipation!
