    Hey guys, ok first of all i have 2 review sites, the content on both is unique, and on one Google is indexing me really quick as soon as i post. The others abit lacking but all the same i dont mind.
    Anyway my main issue is that i am signed up with affiliate schemes, and they provide a datafeed etc. What my issue is, is how do i, for example if im promoting the iPhone 4S, take all the iPhone 4S prices, models etc and show them as rows on my WP blog, i am looking to do something similar to what what dialaphone .com do whereby its in rows, showing different packages prices networks etc. All help will be appreciated and as mentioned i am completely grounded by this issue.
    Thanks

    Use a csv importer plugin. Search gooogle, there are free ones.

    You will need to edit your feed in excell 1st to match the required format.

    Well it would create posts or pages, or custom posts.
    To show on your offers and deals pages, you would need to do a little template editing.

    Eg set the datafeed to post iphones in datafeed/iphones category, then display whatever details you want in your iphones page template by pulling from that category.

    Are you comfortable editing page templates?

    Well, just because they are in the database, doesnt mean they ever have to show as live posts. Put them in a cateory that you exclude from all navigation, or better yet make a custom post type of affiliate_products.

    I'll see if i can find a way around template editing, though it is fairly simple when you get into it.
