I have a members area but it isn't that good. I need a better members area created that you gain access to, following payment. It needs to be expandable to be able to offer different levels of membership depending on the payment amount. The payment method is probably best done using paypal - please advise. Although at the moment only one payment value will gain access. This is just for future advancement we may have.
I would like the sign up to allow the user to create their own username and password. Preferably with Ajax so to advise dynamically whether the username is taken from the SQL database.
The signup/payment form should be look like the one already coded. So you can use the css already present for styling.
The php should protect the site from hackers.
My members are already sends an email to the user reminding them of their chosen username and password. The sign-up should include this using php.mailer.
The user will pay to have access to the site for a limited amount of time and so the code will need to remind them of this issue close to the time for membership renewal.
I know there are standard templates for doing all this so it shouldn't take too long, especially since much of the design aspect has been developed.
Please also inform me of any other aspects/issues/complications I may have forgotten or not be aware of.
