mapping Data Fields from Octoparse

    So I scraped job postings from a website to import onto my website
    I having it set to automatically import based on a schedule, that way it updates jobs by adding new ones/deleting filled positions

    I might be wrong, but seems I can’t have it automatically import from a local csv/excel sheet and need to have it come from a url.

    So it seems I have two options (I already have WP All Import Pro)
    1)Use Zapier and have this sent to a google sheet and use that url (only thing is zapier charges per task)
    2) I connected Octoparse to my sql database and it asks where to map data fields
    gives me different options but I don’t want to mess up the template as it seems it goes directly to the website, whereas I only need to have it exported to a url to import with WP Import

    Do you have any suggestions as to where to map to or if there’s a better alternative?
    Thank you

    If you mean mapping CSV data to job listings, it’s possible if you have a custom PHP script or plugin that creates or updates job listings (these are implemented as a custom post type “hp_listing”). Job fields are implemented as “hp_fieldname” meta fields, while selectable fields are implemented as “hp_listing_fieldname” taxonomies. So if this solution supports importing WordPress posts and taxonomies of a custom type it should be ok.
