It started small about three years ago but now it's too big for one person to keep up with. I get submissions every day now and need to get this converted to something more manageable.
I went and downloaded one of those "data miner" programs that are supposed to be so obnoxious but I figure if I'm using it on my own site only then that's not so rude.
But, before I install and try to figure out how to use this thing, is this even what I need to do?
The directory now has 52 pages. The index page has static links to the 51 "category" pages. The "categories" are the 50 states plus the District of Columbia.
I need to pull the listings into a database or spreadsheet of some type. There are only three parts to each listing. Here is a URL removed snippet of the code:
<li><a href="http://www.somesite.org/">Some Site</a> - Some City</li>
<li><a href="http://www.anothersite/">Another Site</a> - Another City</li>
<li><a href="http://www.blahblah/">Blah Blah Site</a> - Blah Town</li>
<li><a href="http://yougettheidea.com">You Get the idea</a> - City</li>
I would also need it to pull the state from the page title or somewhere since it's not a part of each individual listing.
Of course, I've no idea what to do with the database once I have it. I figure one thing at a time. Maybe editing static pages is the best way for me to go since I don't know what I'm doing.
