    Hi,
    I'm looking for some advice on building a website which allows people to sign up (and pay via paypal subscription) and have an editable profile (simple with some customisable fields) which would be listed with a thumbnail on the main page.
    Is it possible to do this with xsite pro (or partially)? I was reading that ruby on rails is good for this kind of stuff however I am pretty inexperienced with building decent websites from scratch. I downloaded aptana studio, it's going to be a steep learning curve, if someone could point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.
    peace

    Find a script like phpFox or Handshakes, and you won't need to program anything yourself. They come with paypal support straight out of the box...

    Building a site on rails is not even in the same ballpark as building a simple site from scratch, you have to know advanced programming techniques.
