WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm working on a spreadsheet that has the contact information for thousands of training programs related to my niche. I'm wondering if any of you know a way to automate the process of creating a landing page for each entry. Each page will contain:

  1. School name
  2. School address
  3. School phone number
  4. School website
  5. School accreditation date

Since this is a very routine process, there must be a way to automate it all instead of posting 3,000+ landing pages. Let me know if you have any suggestions.

Thank you.

This looks like a request that belongs more on a job board for hiring a consultant. –  Dougal Campbell Mar 11 '11 at 15:02

If you upload the spreadsheet I can create you a wordpress export that you can import on your site, no problem. –  hakre Mar 11 '11 at 15:13

You can use the CSV Importer plugin to import your spreadsheet into posts or even better a custom post type say "school" import school name as post title and the rest as custom fields. Then create a single-school.php file in your theme directory and pull out the name and other fields and you are done. Each school will have Its own page

+1. Just make a custom post type for that and export it using the core WordPress exporter Plugin. This will show you which format you need. –  kaiser Mar 11 '11 at 18:25
