[resolved] Multisite - Single Page Control? (7 posts)

    Hello,

    Basically I want to create a website where users can sign up get their own personal page on my website?

    From what I can see Multisite is a good way to go, but can anyone tell me if it's possible to do the following:

    • only allow the user to have one page when they sign up, and only allow them to see and edit their own page with 1000mb being the data limit to their page?
    • users can see each others pages via the website but when they log in they can only edit their own.
    • to sign up users would have to pay a small subscription fee. I would be able to control subscription in admin.
    • Users will have access to the online images folder and can upload their own images and videos.
    • I as admin can see and control all pages added? Deleting any if necessary!
    • Add additional features to pages such as a rating system for comments?
    • Online Forum, that anyone can post on?

    I did look at BuddyPress which is close to what I'm after, but with that you can only create a profile page and post comments, I'd like to be able to allow user to add own content etc.. that anyone can comment on?

    I also came across this website http://www.myblogportal.co.uk/ which does what I want but gives the user the ability to create a whole wordpress website rather than just the 1 page.

    If theres anyone who can tell me what plugins would be suitable for this project it would be much appreciated. I would be happy to pay money for a plugin if it does the job.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Ipstenu,

    When I say personal page, I mean a page where they can add what they want, i.e. one user might choose to have a page about their favourite sports team.

    Would a user be able to do this type of thing inside a personal blog instead? So they can add own content i.e images and videos inside their blog and people can comment on it? This might work even better!

    Can you limit the amount of data that one person can blog? With the website I mention above, the user is limited to 1000MB for their website?

    For the additional plugins what do you personally recommend, there are so many to choose from?

    Thanks for your help

  4. Would a user be able to do this type of thing inside a personal blog instead? So they can add own content i.e images and videos inside their blog and people can comment on it?

    Yes. :)

    Can you limit the amount of data that one person can blog? With the website I mention above, the user is limited to 1000MB for their website?

    No. You can limit the files they upload, but not the DB space they take up.

    As to the plugins...

    to sign up users would have to pay a small subscription fee. I would be able to control subscription in admin.

    I haven't ever used one so I have no idea.

    Add additional features to pages such as a rating system for comments?

    I use GD Stars, but there's also PollDaddy which I THINK lets you do that too.

    Online Forum, that anyone can post on?

    bbPress, SimplePress, Vanilla forums... If you use BuddyPress, it's integrated with bbPress last I checked.

    Thank you Ipstenu you've been very helpful. Least I know my project can be done now.

    I'm sure there are many documents that will guide me to creating my project, but if you do see any further posts by me, you'll know what I'm trying to do.

    Thanks again
