Would like to write a scraper and grab articles from an articles directory that I like, and put the articles into my own articles directory.
Your script would spider their directory, and pull in: name of author, the full article, and the author’s bio. Then it would put that information into my own articles directory.
I had a programmer install a script called ArticlesCM. We customized a few features and the templates, but no major changes.
ArticlesCM uses a mysql database on the webserver (we use host gator to host our sites). ArticlesCM is written in PHP and is easily customized.
Important: I’d like to be able to run an update once a day to see if any new articles have been added to the original articles directory, and then spier them and bring them over to my articles directory.
