I am looking for an opinion - a strategy in how best to use your tools

I have a client that wants me to convert a joomla site to wordpress. That in itself is no problem but this site has some special needs. 1. it uses jomsocial, a social community extension to manage acl, and a profile system.
2. it charges users for access to the profile - like a fee-based directory site.
3. users can add their own ads to their profiles to generate revenue.
4. users can upload photos, videos to their profiles - where the videos become part of a larger youtube-like experience for non-paying customers.
5. paid users are compelled to participate in blogging, posting videos through a user points system
6. users like to view seo analytic about how their profiles are viewed - in terms of traffic.

In general I am looking to figure out how to do all of this in wordpress. I will admit in advance that this is an admittedly open ended question. So if this is a private message I can share the urls of the sites I want to migrate to your code-distros. Maybe you can tell me if what i want is even doable with wpmu and wordpress.

    Hi there and welcome to the WPMUdev Support Community!

    Buddypress will help you with with 1, 3, 4 and part of 5. Our Directory plugin would be for 2, which is why I moved this discussion. Cubepoints, which is not our plugin, but is supported as a Gateway in our Marketpress might work for the second half of 5, and I'm not sure about 6, but we do have a Post Voting plugin that may accomplish some of what you're looking for there.

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you get stuck somewhere.
