Is This Possible In Wordpress At The Moment?

8 replies
Hey Warriors,

Ive got a client who needs a business site doing soon and it's a really simple concept and would work perfectly in wordpress as it is except that im not sure if this exists already or if it's going to be a custom plugin job!

Now basicly in a nutshell it will be like one of those freebie sites you can setup (a bit like squidoo and stuff too) whereby each user has a page and edit's it in a WYSIWYG editor!

The editor would then in this case be wordpress and they would each get a set number of pages!

The tricky thing is each person needs to buy a page and won't just be given one for free! They then get given an auto category relative to their company name and then can buy more pages (posts) as they need to and then it gives them the option to add another one! But only if they buy it.

Simple right?

The only thing i thought would be rather complicated and probably doesn't exist is disabling the other options except adding a new post would be custom and also a payment per page system too but making it all auto will save alot of manual admin time and user problems too.

So you tech god's first off does this or something similar already exist (i was thinking about an article directory type plugin)? Or if not is this at all possible (easy or hard)?

    Well I think and most probably this can be done with WPMU, you install it on your main blog and then all the others will have to pay to get yoursite.com/theirname

    You can also control from WPMU what to enable and disable.

    Overall yes it can be done but it might take you some time to implement everything and install all the required plugins

      Would WPMU be able to keep the same theme, css styles and generally keep it 'branded' as such so they can only edit the post's and not the categories links and general layout so they would really only be paying for a post and not a 'sub site' or 'mini site'!

      (Im a bit techno retarded when it comes to all of this)

          Yeah Steve once it's done i know the coding work could have alot of other potentials and a wide market of people who would want it but for it's intended use it is only for a small business website who will charge around $20 per page a month (+$200 to $300 one time if you want it done for you) and so is cheaper and you will get relevant traffic (plus bring traffic to the main site and people to the real business) than paying for a whole site yourself!

          Will work out well but is only small scale for the client!

          Bigger potential with this script and ability's is to make a squidoo/hubpages etc type site with a high PR and nice on site seo so the link juice flows like mad and then sell the pages at a one time or subscription type fee!

    Mark, be sure to checkout BuddyPress.org - WordPress Social Network Software

    You might want to consider this instead of WPMU..

    Check out WPMUDEV as they have plugins for WPMU that allow you to charge people for blogs along with tons of other features. I've used the suite of tools before and they work great.

      Just checked it out and the paid to blog + the WPMU settings changed so they cannot change all that much look's great!

      Plus i think i noticed a plugin which made it easy for them to point their main domain to their 'page/post' on my site which would be even better to have too as a free option for them which would bring in their old visitors too.

      Now im really glad i asked the question before paying someone to make this.

      Thanks everyone so far
