Setup Advice please on WPMU site

Hi there.

I'm setting up a site (it's a directory site basically) which needs the following functions

1. Users can register and have their own site newuser.domain.com

2. Different memberships levels with different options

3. The individual site is only customisable by certain fixed fields (eg About Us, Contact, Facebook, Photo, Map etc ) - ideally not a WP backend. (I've been pointed at http://wordpress.org/plugins/profile-builder/)

Can someone fill in the gaps for me please with which WPMU plugins will do the job here....

Thanks

John

    Hey there John,

    Thanks for posting on the forums.

    1. Users can register and have their own site newuser.domain.com

    You just need WordPress multisite for this.

    2. Different memberships levels with different options

    That depends on what kind of membership are you talking about here. If you are talking about access to different content on your site, then you should use Membership Plugin but if you are looking to restrict the plugins and themes the members can choose, then you should use Pro Sites

    3. The individual site is only customisable by certain fixed fields (eg About Us, Contact, Facebook, Photo, Map etc ) - ideally not a WP backend. (I've been pointed at http://wordpress.org/plugins/profile-builder/)

    What about using New Blog Templates and define what all pages can be edited. That ways you will be able to create fixed templates and members can choose any template they like.

    I hope that helps. Please feel free to ask if you have more questions on the same.

    Cheers
