Scripting Filemaker data

Hi all,

 

I'm building up a website in Wordpress that is using Filemaker as a source of data.

I'm using the plugin http://wordpressfilemaker.com/ that gives me some functionalities.

 

Now I need some extra features, like:

- I need to present more FM records (i.e. more worpress pages) in one layout and then update them. I think I can do that with a script and a loop, is it possible?

 

- I can upload images to wordpress with the wordpressfilemaker plugin; when I do that I get back a link of the image: how can I show the image in Filemaker? is there some kind of webviewer?

 

- The multilingual text of a Worpress post looks like:

<!--:en-->english<!--:--><!--:de-->german<!--:-->

so I would like to split the text of every language and put it in a different field when I get the data from worpress.

The other way around, I need to put together the different fields in one text field and sending to worpress.

How can I do that? I'm familiar with python, is there a way to use it inside FM?

 

Thanks for your help.

Best
