Creating a database from excel for a wordpress site
Posted on 2014-11-10
I would like to create a site like getapp, software advice, capterra, toptenreviews.
I have crawled the list of URLs on these sites to get a better understanding on how the site is structured.
I have sorted out the types of pages (vendor profile pages, category pages, search results page, alternative to page, comparison page, etc). I have a list of vendors for each category and a list of tags. I have the entire list of URLs/pages and have grouped them according to the type of page.
I think wordpress might be the best solution to go for here. I would like to customize wordpress to make it do what is needed here.
I do have a few themes and plugins that would help out (like reviews, listings, comparisons, ratings, etc).
I have the entire database ready for use in an excel file.
A lot of these sites don't really have detailed information on these vendors. I went to each of the vendor's site and make sure that I got every single feature they have and more detailed info. I made a very through profile and comparison.
I would like to use this excel file for creating the backend (database) of the site that I am going to build.
How do I turn this into a database that can be used for a wordpress site?
