    What's going on guys?

    I'm kind of caught up in a little stump. I have a list that I need to retrieve in order to put it up on my site.

    For example, this list goes as such:

    On the left side, there's a list of countries.
    Once you click on one of the countries, it will open up (to the right of it) all venue's listed in that country.

    Any ideas how to grab that list and place it on my website? There's got to be a way to do this without manually inputting each of them one by one.

    If you need any additional info, just let me know. I'll be importing this list to a wp site.

    I'm not necessarily looking for someone to do this for me. I'm more interested in doing this on my own. Any ideas?

    yea, what format is the list in and if i understand you right you got the list on a local file? Or have you found it elsewhere? If so PHP DOM can scrape and organize it for you.

    Thanks for your input schvamp.

    The list is on a website, more or less a directory of venues that are sorted out by countries.

    I'm sure, as tedy wrote, that zennoposter and many other programs can do this task for you.
    But they arent really free, ofc there is demo license.. I dont really know about the limitation on those.

    As I said earlyer, PHP (Simple HTML DOM Parser) would be MY weapon of choice for this task.
    If you would like to try it, check out http://simplehtmldom.sourceforge.net/ - You will need to know some basic PHP and HTML.

    I was able to find something similar to what I'm wanting to pull.

    Code:
    http://www.stripclubdatabase.com/
    The above website is basically a directory of venues. In this case, strip clubs. How would I go about pulling these? and importing them onto my site using the wordpress platform.

    Fetching could be done with basic get_content or curl, but crafting material on the page would need customisation, removing html tags, formatting etc. Also if page support rss feeds you can pull feeds and show it like full html posts or something... can not tell more because all depends of page where you will look for material and template where you will present material.

    Hmm.. I'm thinking that there has to be an app or something that is able to pull these. I really doubt all these directory sites start from scratch.
