Website help

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I'm creating a web site where I want users to be able to set up their own personal profiles similar to what you might find on like a dating site.  Are there programs or scripts or even books I could get to help me accomplish this?  Any help will be greatly appreciated. 

Thanks

I'm guessing you're looking for a membership system.

There's a good tutorial right here that can help you started

giving your users the option of creating their own portfolio is pretty simple once you know how to make a membership system.

Thanks that is really helpful.  I'm pretty new to this stuff do you think creating something like that is over my head?

depends how much time you're willing to put into it.

If you don't want to spend too much time on it you could always look for a free script and if it doesn't do everything you need, just look at how it was made and add your own custom features to it.

All you need right now is a membership system that allows users to edit their profile. There are tons of those out there that might suit your needs.

If you don't find anything you can always make your own by following that tutorial

When you say there are a ton of good membership systems out there, any advice on where I would find a good one?  Also where would I find a free script that I can edit?  Thanks

yeh, search hotscripts for a script called PUMA member system, its a good one, uses flat file. but if you create your own one you have more flexability. learnt he basics first tho. good luck.
