We’ve just updated FeedSync to version 1.1.3 which now supports REAXML files that are delivered in zip files which also contain property images. This is a major version release that adds support for zip format REAXML files as supplied by some providers like Rockend Rest and Console.
What it now does to support the zip REAXML format is:
- Unzips the zip file(s) and moves the images into the processed/images folder.
- While processing the REAXML xml files it rewrites the image location with a valid URL so they hey can be imported.
- Moves the processed zip filed into processed/zips.
- Lists zip files waiting to be processed.
- Transfers content from current and appends new status when input file only contains status update.
Grab FeedSync REAXML processor here.

Just one more day…
If you’ve been uttering these words to yourself because you are finishing a project and it needs more time, like a lot more time you are not alone.
I’ve been uttering these words to myself every day for the past 6 months and thanks to you a ecommerce push post that I read on Chris Lema’s blog and his challenge that gave me a tight deadline to release my real estate plugin for WordPress.
This challenge gave me a launch date to strive for.

My requirements when developing this REAXML parser script was to make sure it was fast, efficient and not repeat imports if NO changes are detected and be able to use WP-Property to import the files and manage the property and rental listings.
So after countless hours searching for a REA XML parser to no avail I set out to find a developer to build my REA XML parser.
The script had to do the following:
- Combine the individual REAXML files into a single, or multiple import files.
- Process the results and store them in 3 new separate REAXML files: Current, SOLD/LEASED, and withdrawn to increase speed.
- When the property status changes to sold/leased/withdrawn delete the property entry from the current REAXML output file.
- Just added: Geocode the property address during import and add another field so my new property plugin did not have to also geocode the entry on import.
