I'm creating a website for a publisher that contains +- 1.500 registered and these books have its prices rearranged time to time, obviously it would be a hard time to manually upload each one of them.
For these books I must have some custom fields, like author, pages, format, cover(image), first chapter, authors page (internal page of the author), and some others that I can put some files for download.
So since you guys know the main function of the site, I have some questions:
Which are the the best way of creating these functions? (I've tried some e-commerce/store themes but the next question ruined it)
I will have to upload the prices of the these books time to time, so there is a way of importing just the information that is contained in the field price all in once? I mean like importing a xml, a sql direct in the data base that will upload/overwrite only this field for all the books, since they have different prices? (I know I will have to specify the id or some other field of each one of the books for the data base understand which posts it must change)
I know that is complicated (at least for me) but I've trying to figure out how I'm going to do all of these programming and yet I don't know.
If anyone could help me, that would be amazing!
