Hi all, this is my first post here. So before I get into it Id just like to say you have some really cool plugins and themes here. Lets hope the forum lives up to these high standards :wink: Im sure it will.
OK so I know this has probably been asked a hundred times but Ive searched and searched and cant find a good solution anywhere. Which says to me there is a gap in the market for clever plugin builders (hint hint)!
How can I create a client area in Wordpress? What I need is an area where clients only have access to their own area, they can then upload and download pdfs and other files etc. It would also be good for the client and the site admin to have some kind of dialogue either via comments, posts or whatever.
Now I thought about using Dropbox with password encoded pages, but wouldnt I have to create a dropbox account for each individual client? Does anyone know about dropbox here?
Then I thought about using a forum like Simplepress but the way its setup you can assign single users to forums or topics, also the file upload is a bit clunky. It would also mean that all clients would be able to see all the others forums or topics in the main forum home view, which is not what I want!
So then I thought about using multisite and forcing clients to signup for a site, where they would only have access to the posts menu to post files and updates etc. How easy would this to do and would any of your plugins help?
I came across your support system plugin which I thought would work as a client area if you could only share files etc.
I dont know, really confused about they way forward to be honest. Thought WP would have this down already!
Any help mucho appreciated
