Plug in for word press

I am in need of  a plugin that will do the following:

When a user enters a zip code in a dialogue box and his "Submit" button, it directs them directly to a webage. The next page is a landing page.

It would upload a csv file that has two columns... column one is zip codes. Column two is the appropriate landing page.

If they enter a zip code that is not listed, they would be directed to a generic landing page.

Thanks!

The basic mechanism is:

Enter something.
Be redirected based on value.
+Go to the next page.
+Upload something
or
-Go to the next page

I would just use a form plugin like Ninja Forms or Gravity Forms and build around it.  I don't think you're going to find "Bob's Zipcode Uploader Plugin" in the repository.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Jason's right. You'd probably have to have this built. You can get a database of current zip codes from zip-codes.com (I've used them repeatedly for projects, and it's quite nice). There are thousands and thousands of zip codes. Are you specifically looking for all of them or just a few that are relevant to what you're doing?

The latter is cheaper to get made than the former.

Thanks guys! It is actually just about 275 zip codes that I already have. Any zip code that would be entered other than those, would go to a generic page.

I already have an excel spread sheet with 275 zip code in column A and the correct landing page in column B. Could I write this in HTML? Would it be very difficult? How much would it cost to pay someone to help me with it?

Thanks again, any info you have is great.

I am guessing this is about a day's work based on gut feeling of how long it would take me to code. That can range from $125 for overseas amateurs to, $1,250 for first rate developers. It will also depend on how you want to interact with the zip codes and data and if you need any user friendly controls or settings, which could increase the price. You could potentially naked it cheaper if you are willing to give up control / customization nice-to-haves.

And no,  you can't do this in HTML. You need a PHP developer who is experienced with Wordpress.
