OK so this is a long shot because I know that you don't have to help me with this but, I'm asking anyway.
I want to build a directory site. I have tried plugins but they are too limiting so now I'm turning to GF. A bit of flattery to oil the wheels, I think that GF is a beauty.
I want users to register and have editorial control of their entries and I don't want them to be able to go anywhere near anything else.
It's like a business directory but this is focused on social care agencies and other groups. Oranisations that provide services for disabled/disadvantaged people.
I have tried the GF directory plugin but its a bit buggy and is making me go round and round.
I think the first step is to get people to register. After that, use a form to populate a post that sits outside of the blog. I then want them to be able to edit their listing with a form rather than the back-end.
This is what I think I need to do:
Create a custom post type for a Listing.
Create a form that populates the custom post type
Create a page with a loop that calls the custom post
Work some magic with the whole membership/registration thing
Stare at some code to will it into submission
Make it so that I can charge people a small fee to list (I need to pay for the hosting and my GF Dev Licence!)
Now, I know you are thinking that I don't know what I'm doing but hey, why else would I be asking?
All I want is for someone to suggest a work-flow so that I can work through this stuff and get it going.
