Lynda.com Clone : Plugin or What? (7 posts)

    So I'm curious... as a new WordPress user / developer-wannabe, if I wanted to clone Lyynda.com and do video training but use WordPress to set it up, would I need to develop my own plugin? Or does anyone know of any current plugins that would let me do about the same thing?

    I wanna setup a series of categories and sub-categories of video-blogs/tutorials, and have them be searchable. I had thought about making them pages for each class, with multiple videos per page... but I don't know how to categorize them to make them easily searchable.

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    What do you mean "clone Lynda.com"?

    I would like to replicate the functionality of the lynda.com website using WordPress as my engine.

    I wanna make a wordpress site look and act like lynda.com

    In theory, it's possible but asking people here how to do that would be well beyond the scope of these forums.

    I can figure out how to do that... that isn't my problem.

    I don't know WordPress well enough yet to know whether this would be a Custom Theme, Template, Custom Post Type, Plugin, or a Drupal question... or whether it's already built-in to WordPress already and I just have to activate XYZ settings...

    That's why I asked.

    Likely customized theme and plugins. No single answer though, as there are many ways to do it.
