I need a membership site that does these things...

by Dayne Dylan 10 replies
Warriors,

I'm thinking of staring a paid membership website in the self improvement field. What I would like is for this site to have places for articles, reports, audio/video, forum/message board and most of all, individual member pages (like Myspace or similiar) that are easy to create for members. This would make it more of a community.

Any recommendations of what program or service to use for this?

Thanks!

    Joomla is a great option ...

    it is free but extremely well supported. It gives you great publishing capabilities just like you want and more. You can also get a free plugin that adds membership functionality.

    Good luck

    You could use any membership site script to protect a folder and then install some social networking software within the membership area?

    All the best

      This is a new piece of software that my friend developed with his partner.

      I think it may have all the elements that you are looking for.

      Check out the video overview and then if you like it, you can try it for a week for $1.

        Joomla is a CMS, Drupal is a CMS for community applications. That may be more of what you want.

              It is a great Content Management System.

              I just started using Joomla, as I had made a similar post regarding either Joomla or Drupal.

              In a short couple of hours I had the basic concept set up, now all I need to do is add more extensions, which they have many, and add content.

              As I am not that good at php, it was a snap to get up and running.

              I am going to be using it as a local business directory that offers membership for listings, websites, etc.

    Here is where Dolphin shines esp. if you want minimal setup chores. You mentioned paid membership but missed to list payment processor . Dolphin takes care of that too.

    You're free to define membership types-free,standard,premium etc. Customize the page layout, menu, fields, images and lots more.

    I have a few sites under development myself. So give Dolphin a look.
