    I do have some experience with that kind of integration. They provide an XML API. Build a plugin which checks expedia for data and saves them to db. Setup a cron job for this (don't query live, as it will make your site slow). Add the data using save_post().

    Guys, anything you want to integrate into WordPress should use the WordPress API in the right way, and that means loading your CSS and JS files using the WordPress queue system...those sites have lots of info and best practices for creating plugins and widgets :)

    Anyone know of a theme with built in API integration with Expedia or Agoda? I want something like their white-label but the ability to add in blog posts to make the content more interesting instead of endless hotel sites out there being sold on Flippa.

    Free help or premium help ? :p

    Secondly, Chameleon is a property of Elegant themes. Are you sure expedia is providing it to their affiliates for free? Interesting, I have to take care..

    To be honest I don't have that much money, I have already spent $50 out of my $100 budget on a hosting service and a few domain names and themes. so I would prefer free help. I am just looking for someone to guide me in the right direction. Not spoon feed me. Expedia API look too complicated for a newbie like me to maintain so I think I will pass on that one.

    The Chameleon I am reffering is a Expedia site building system for their affiliates. It is not to be confused with the theme "chameleon" by Elegant Themes.

    So Can someone who has used Expedia Chameleon System please help me. I just need to know how to integrate my own domain with Expedia's Chamelon programme.



    thanks
