I am creating a website about cars. I want to have a page for each car, with subpages (i.e. Gallery, Specs, etc...) for each car page. I have the content on my hard drive for each car. Doing this manually will take forever, so i was thinking of writing a code (maybe in python) that will fill the contents for each car into an html file; however, i read that Wordpress doesn't store files but instead keeps the content in a database. So my question is, what's the best way to create bulk pages and upload them to Wordpress? Is there a plugin which i'm missing that can do this?

Thanks.

I would suggest manually creating your first page (a custom post type might make more sense here?) in WordPress and then use the fantastic WP CSV plugin to export the page.

Using the first page fields as a guide, simply copy your car data into the appropriate cell in a chart and import the completed CSV data when finished.

  • Absolutely. Depending on how you are using the image (WP featured/thumbnail, custom field, meta) for your post or CPT, the WP CSV export will show you the field name (as a column for mass filling) and the syntax/format to use. When you create that first post, add your image as you'd like them all to be done, export and voila. – jdm2112 Oct 13 '14 at 14:40
