I have a new, not live, Wordpress site for fiction writers, I want to add a new named page
for each registered user (I am using WP Responder to get emails/names, this can be changed,
there are no users yet anyway).
Perhaps do it in WP as custom coding, that may be the simplest way to do it.
Design is all done, this is for the coding work and perhaps some UI.
Registration system - email and name - sends email with confirmation; and terms and conditions if they want the page creation as well as basic registrtation.
The user can then:
have a profile with avatar, description etc
add files such as story pdfs, docs, etc,
each file has a description field
and a popup image as a preview (this is not essential)
user can manage that file list (display order, show /hide each file)
the page name will be
which they decide on in the initial setup.
That is basically it.
There will be an Admin system, for me to manage the users.
a way to 'friend' each other (users) and also a way to show/hide the files to friends only
or all public.
Also a vote on each file if users allows that, and display of results (possibly).
And some sort of instant chat between users (possibly).
This depends on what the method is for the main job as some cms have all this as plugins.
WHAT TO USE
This is a 'mini site' page for each user, for their own files and some texts.
There is a WP plug called Mingle. I have tried this but didn't like it, perhaps a custom
code of that would work.
Can link off a nav button, but into separate section.
A forum might be OK but I don't want that long commenting function, this is only for file
display and comment.
Or Drupal, Joomlas cms but that might be too big.
So I prefer a separate system (any of the ones are fine, but prefer easy to use) that can
be added into my site as
[url removed, login to view]
You can get the emails/names out of WP Responder - they are on the db I assume;
WP Responder this will have to trigger the setup in Drupal or whatever is used.
UNLESS you have a different registration system, as the site is not live yet so no existing users.
It might be better to base the registrations around this and then extract for an autoresponder.
IF USING WP ONLY
Can be added to WP, that sounds simplest. I have used Drupal and Joomla before and they are
too complicated as multipurpose.
Nav intergration - I am using Lightword theme modified a bit, with a logo etc; that has a
number of top level nav items (to sections made of WP pages). There is not a lot of room
for more things there, apart from the link to 'publish' which will be the user pages.
The top level nav will link to wherever you think best in the site structure, for the user
