Hi everyone,

I'm using Django 1.5, Python 2.7 on windows 7.
I have the following view that extracts and display links from various
sources. It works ok. But I don't know how to:
1. save the data to the database and
2. sort it by date extracted.

I hope someone could help me here.


def foo():
     site = "http://www.foo.com/portal/jobs"
     hdr = {'User-Agent' : 'Mozilla/5.0'}
     req = urllib2.Request(site, headers=hdr)
     jobpass = urllib2.urlopen(req)
     soup = BeautifulSoup(jobpass)
     for tag in soup.find_all('a', href = True):
         tag['href'] =
urlparse.urljoin('http://www.businessghana.com/portal/', tag['href'])
     return map(str, soup.find_all('a', href = re.compile('.getJobInfo')))

def example():
     site = "http://example.com"
     hdr = {'User-Agent' : 'Mozilla/5.0'}
     req = urllib2.Request(site, headers=hdr)
     jobpass = urllib2.urlopen(req)
     soup = BeautifulSoup(jobpass)
     return map(str, soup.find_all('a', href = re.compile('.display-job')))

  foo_links = foo()
  example_links = example()

def all_links():
     return (foo_links + example_links)

def display_links(request):
     name = all_links()
     paginator = Paginator(name, 25)
     page = request.GET.get('page')
         name = paginator.page(page)
     except PageNotAnInteger:
         name = paginator.page(1)
     except EmptyPage:
         name = paginator.page(paginator.num_pages)

     return render_to_response('jobs.html', {'name' : name})

my template looks like this:

{% for link in name %}
   <li> {{ link|safe }}</li>
{% endfor %}
  <div class="pagination">
<span class= "step-links">
     {% if name.has_previous %}
         <a href="?page={{ names.previous_page_number }}">Previous</a>
     {% endif %}

     <span class = "current">
         Page {{ name.number }} of {{ name.paginator.num_pages}}.

     {% if name.has_next %}
         <a href="?page={{ name.next_page_number}}">next</a>
     {% endif %}

My model looks like this:

from django.db import models

class jobLinks(models.Model):
     links = models.URLField()
     pub_date = models.DateTimeField('date retrieved')

     def __unicode__(self):
         return self.links

It is my first programming project and I can't get this part to work no
matter what I tried/searched
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
