Scraping with ACF Pro?

  • I have a website which is going to be recommending books.

    I want a custom field where I enter the Amazon URL, and I get back the following data automatically:

    Book title (to be set as post title)
    Book author (to be added to ‘Authors’ custom taxonomy)
    Book image (to be set as featured image)
    Book genre (to be added to ‘Genres’ custom taxonomy)
    Book description (to be added to custom field)

    Is there a way to achieve this with ACF Pro? I thought maybe oEmbed would be the way to go about it, but I’m not having a lot of luck there.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

  • option a: use the amazon api to get the info.
    option b: use php to scrape the info, and programatically insert into an ACF field.
