    Hi People,

    I just acquired a new site, it is a job site for the UK. It is completely empty at the moment and I wondered if there was a way of populating the site with available jobs from another site or feed???

    Anyone know how to do this and if so, point me the right way??

    Thanks

    You can write a script to cURL and parse a job board, then empty the data into a delimited file and import into mysql.

    You can contact a job affiliate and see if they have a data dump, but then you would have to work with them nd their aff structure.

    You can parse RSS feeds from CL, same as method 1.

    Excellent,

    Is this simple to do and if I do step 1, is there any legal implications involved??

    Thanks for the reply,
