I am trying to add the information below into a Wordpress database table (specifically the wp_postmeta table). But I can't figure out how to add the ones with the same node name.

The XML document is:

The code I have so far is:

<?php
//error display
error_reporting(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors', true);

$target_path = "temp/";

$target_path = $target_path . basename($_FILES['feed']['name']); 

if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES['feed']['tmp_name'], $target_path)) {

    $time = time();
    $rand = rand(100,500);
    rename("temp/".basename($_FILES['feed']['name']), "temp/".$time.$rand.".xml");

    $filename = $time.$rand.".xml";

    $objDOM = new DOMDocument();
    $objDOM->load("temp/".$filename);
    $job = $objDOM->getElementsByTagName("job"); 

    foreach( $job as $value ) {
    $title = $value->getElementsByTagName("title");
    $link = $value->getElementsByTagName("link");
    $post_name = $value->getElementsByTagName("post_name");
    $status = $value->getElementsByTagName("status");
    $category = $value->getElementsByTagName("category");
    $category = $value->getElementsByTagName("category");
    $wp:postmeta = $value->getElementsByTagName("wp:postmeta");
    $wp:postmeta = $value->getElementsByTagName("wp:postmeta");
    $wp:postmeta = $value->getElementsByTagName("wp:postmeta");
    $wp:postmeta = $value->getElementsByTagName("wp:postmeta");
    $wp:postmeta = $value->getElementsByTagName("wp:postmeta");
    }

    $f01 = $title->item(0)->nodeValue;
    $f02  = $link->item(0)->nodeValue;
    $f03  = $post_name->item(0)->nodeValue;
    $f04  = $status->item(0)->nodeValue;
    $f05  = $category->item(0)->nodeValue;
    $f06  = $wp:postmeta->item(0)->nodeValue;
    $f07 = $wp:

    mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "password") or die(mysql_error());
    mysql_select_db("dbname") or die(mysql_error());

//if insert entry   
if($title != ""){

    $query = mysql_query("INSERT INTO wp_postmeta (meta_key, meta_value )" ) or die(mysql_error());
    $current_id = mysql_insert_id(); 
} else{
    //file didn't been upload properly
    echo "There was an error uploading the file, please try again!";
}

?>

$wp:postmeta = $value->getElementsByTagName("wp:postmeta");

You should handle this just like you did with "job", with a foreach.

Can you be more specific? Is it something like this?

<?php
    //error display
    error_reporting(E_ALL);
    ini_set('display_errors', true);
    $target_path = "temp/";
    $target_path = $target_path . basename($_FILES['feed']['name']);
    if(move_uploaded_file($_FILES['feed']['tmp_name'], $target_path)) {
    $time = time();
    $rand = rand(100,500);
    rename("temp/".basename($_FILES['feed']['name']), "temp/".$time.$rand.".xml");
    $filename = $time.$rand.".xml";
    $objDOM = new DOMDocument();
    $objDOM->load("temp/".$filename);
    $job = $objDOM->getElementsByTagName("job");

    foreach( $job as $value ) {
        $meta_value = $value->getElementsByTagName("title");
        $link = $value->getElementsByTagName("link");
        $post_name = $value->getElementsByTagName("post_name");
        $status = $value->getElementsByTagName("status");
        $category = $value->getElementsByTagName("category");
        $category = $value->getElementsByTagName("category");


        $f01 = $title->item(0)->nodeValue;
        $f02  = $link->item(0)->nodeValue;
        $f03  = $post_name->item(0)->nodeValue;
        $f04  = $status->item(0)->nodeValue;
        $f05  = $category->item(0)->nodeValue;


        foreach( $post as $entry ) {
            $meta_key0.$entry = $wp:postmeta = $entry->getElementsByTagName("wp:meta_key");
            $meta_value0.$entry = $wp:postmeta = $entry->getElementsByTagName("wp:meta_value");
            $meta_key0.$entry  = $wp:postmeta->item(0)->nodeValue;
            $meta_value0.$entry  = $wp:postmeta->item(0)->nodeValue;
        }
    mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "password") or die(mysql_error());
    mysql_select_db("dbname") or die(mysql_error());
    //if insert entry
    if($title != ""){
    $query = mysql_query("INSERT INTO wp_postmeta (meta_key, meta_value )" ) or die(mysql_error());
    $current_id = mysql_insert_id();
    } else{
    //file didn't been upload properly
    echo "There was an error uploading the file, please try again!";
    }
    ?>

Thanks

I have just written this, but it isn't doing anything. What is wrong with the code?

Getting any errors ? If not, add output at key places to determine where the code stops.

I've made some fixes. Everything works as expected, but at the "//Loop through the postmeta tags and add to table" point, it doesn't work. This section is not executing and nothing is getting added to the table.

$post = $objDOM->getElementsByTagName("wp:postmeta");

Am not entirely sure, but for this to work I think the wp namespace needs to be added to the DOMDocument.

I've made some fixes. I've managed to add everything as I want to the database. But I expected the change in the wp_postmeta table to be reflected in the wp admin area. Guess I haven't added everything necessary for this to happen. If anyone knows about wordpress and what alterations are necessary on any of the tables in order for a post to appear under its post tab please let me know.

This is giving me error.Fatal error: Call to a member function item() on a non-object in C:\websites\WP\jobs\upload.php on line 53
