Need to turn WordPress into a paid subscription directory (6 posts)

    I need to create a paid subscription directory where people can register their business and enter its details.

    Subscriptions should be paid on a monthly or yearly basis.

    Business details include typical fields such as: description, address, phone number, zip code, etc.

    The idea is that people can create their user as usual, but all the data about their business should be entered in a custom post type. The reason I want this is because I can easily add new fields to a custom post type and also can assign different custom taxonomies, such as neighborhood, business type, etc

    Question #1: how do I restrict each user to a single post? When a user signs up, a post should be created and assigned to his username automatically.

    Question #2: I also need to offer paid membership per month or per year. How can integrate such a feature with a payment gateway, such as Paypal for example?

    I don't expect an exact response for these questions, but it would be great if I could get some guideance on where to get started.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the suggestion, but that's not what I'm looking for

    googled: wordpress number of posts per user
    http://cleverness.org/2010/08/13/limit-number-of-posts-per-user-in-wordpress/

    googled: wordpress subscription plugin
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/membership/ and more

    the auto-create post i'm not sure, but google it. I know you
    can look at the "wordpress template hierarchy" and set up a template
    for each post, or for all posts (posts.php in your theme folder)

    good luck

    Thanks! This might actually do the work.

    Funny thing is that I actually googled this but I guess I used the wrong keywords LOL

    Thanks again digibucc, will give this a try

    the right words are everything. i spend a lot of time
    searching for info so distilling it to keywords is... a
    specialty :)

    that's why i give the words i use when i find something,
    as they are not always the ones you'd expect to get you
    an answer.
