Hi

I'm a bit new to php, but have helped develop a couple of projects several years ago - trying to make the time to "re-enter" the php world.

I'm trying to first find out if this idea even can be done - never heard of anything like it: I want to update a web form that was opened via login on one of the ecommerce marketplace websites with another webform I create on my own hosted site. The opened web form would already have a template contained in it with spaces where variables would be inserted.

The issue is that I have hundreds of the same type of product in inventory that I want to enter. Each has it's own brand, model number, etc. Basically it's a quick way to create product records without needing to re-enter 12 diffrent variables in several diffrent places withing the inventory record.

I know I could develop something like this via web form and a data base using trim functions or something along those lines, but really want something that gets the inventory entered fast and instantly (versus needing to upload a file).

Thanks for taking the time to look at my idea.


PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Project: Custom Data Entry Form to Enter Inventory - PHP Web Form.

Project Summary: Script would allow data entry of inventory items via web form. The data entered into the fields within the form would populate one or more {variable} fields contained in the description text within another web form that is open on another website via login on a ecommerce marketplace website.

Rationale: The issue here is that many of the variables that need to be entered have to be retyped and entered over several times when creating a product record. This solution allows the entery of variables just once, and have them recorded in all of the places they need to go automatically within a template.

Variable Data Entry Form:

{sku_number}
{brand}
{model_number}
{manufacturer}
{mpn}
{input}
{output}
{connector_type}
{condition}
{addl_details}
{regular_price}
{our_price}

Actual Inventory Product Record Example Template:

Title:
{brand} AC Power Supply Adapter No. {model_number} - (Refurbished)
