    Hi to all of you!
    I am a newbie here in WordPress and would like to know some thoughts on how can I develop my site.

    I would like to have a site where there is a

    1. User Registration - only members can post comments.
    2. Contact Page -
    3. File Upload - registered user can upload file through one of the page of the site.

    Do you have an idea on how I can achieve these? What is the best plugins to use?

    Appreciate you help.

    Hi Cubes,

    Welcome to the world of WordPress:)

    1. In your blog's admin area, go to Settings > General and tick 'Anyone can register'; then go to Settings > Discussion and tick 'Users must be registered and logged in to comment'

    2. I use Contact Form 7 to make contact forms. Free and easy.

    3. WPRecipes posted some code for how to enable this: http://www.wprecipes.com/wordpress-tip-allow-contributors-to-upload-files

    Look out for is current_user_can('contributor') in that piece of code. The contributor bit means that only registered users who are classed as Contributors will be allowed to upload files; it still won't allow Subscribers (the base level) to upload files, and for security reasons I don't think you would want to allow that.

    Hope that helps.
