  • Hello, most of what you want to do is not really WordPress related — if you want it to be “separte from everything else.” You can code all of your requirements into your theme.

    Most of WordPress custom development is not due in the dashboard. You will need to get into the files and edit the php, etc. It’s best that you just get started and then ask specific questions.

    that’s what I thought. so you do absolutely think that what I’m wanting to do MUST be done by editing the PHP files directly, is that correct? I just want to make sure that is what you’re saying. I’m pretty sure I’m hearing you correctly.

    can you confirm? thanks.

    Yeah, probably. However, you could go search the plugin repository — there might be a plugin that can help out (especially with the user registration). It’s not really “editing the php files” but rather adding to include your intended functionality.

    I understand what you’re saying. thanks so much Patrick. I know there are plug-ins to provide the “log in” and “registration” functionality. But just to bother you with another question, shouldn’t that log in and registration stuff be included in the original installation? It should seem obvious to the developers, should it not?

    It’s included at the most basic level at /wp-register.php — You can further customize from there either by coding it yourself or using a plugin.
