Plugin for  Right Move BLM file imports to WordPress

Right Move is a property portal used in the UK and Europe.  It has an interface file specification called .blm  which is defined in the Rightmove Automated Datafeed Specification .

Many Estate agent back office systems generate .blm RightMove file format for uploading to RightMove and if you have  a back office system it makes sense to use the same data feed to your own estate agency website, so keeping the data exactly in sync between your backoffice, RightMove (and other Portals) and your own website.

WordPress is such a popular platform, with multiple themes and plugins for property agents. The major players in the plugin stake are Easy Property Listings, WP-Property and for Genesis, Agent Press listings.

Considering the variety of designs of plugins ( & themes) that support properties, a sensible design would be to write a plugin that converts .blm to xml format and then use the excellent WP All Import to do the heavy lifting of the creation of the custom post types used by the particular plugins and themes. This makes the solution modular in as far as the conversion to XML is separate from the structures used by the property plugins. And with WP All Import Pro version, you can trigger cron jobs to fully automate the upload.

I have developed a plugin based on Rightmove Automated Datafeed Specification Version 3 and have used it based on the output of a property agent backoffice system,Gemini VTUK , and used it to import to Easy Property Listings via WP All Import Pro.
