    Is it possible to somehow scrape Craigslist & backpage data and post it thru Classi?

    Hello all,

    I am creating a classifieds network thanks to Classipress, and I'm excited to be starting in my new venture. I have checked similar threads matching this, but there are no plugins in the WP directory that has anything to do with classifieds site importing.

    I am not a coder so my computer savvy with coding is short to none; I can only dream of features! LOL.

    In terms of coding, is it possible to create a script that imports over data and posts it as its own Classipress ads? That'd be awesome to beef up my site with some real content.

    Thank you for your time in reading and responding to this question! Cheers from California!
