Any help ? give me some details to get my feet wet
Install WP, some plugins, done.
better if you put more info about what membership you looking for..
if you only want protect your content for paid member, try use Wordpress and s2member..
I don't understand what a WP is, and what plugins?
is WordPress, look here
http://WordPress.og everything is on there
And if you have no clue about WP or plugins I would't even thinking about a membership site for now. Focus on how to work with WP
I made THIS POST a while back which should give you a good overview and send you in the right direction. Things have changed a bit since four or so years ago, but feel free to let me know if you have any questions.
Its the cms based on WordPress and plugin do the functions like membership and other stuff like content protection.
Considering you have no experience in Wordpress, and most likely no web development experience in general, I recommend you hire a Freelancer to develop it for you.
I have only used wix, so if wordpress is like wix with templates etc then I can hack it.
No WordPress is another cms.
I can provide you my services for setting up a membership website if allowed.
Wordpress is self-hosted (unless you are paying for them to take care of it for you). You need to manage the backend and it's not all drag &a drop like Wix. To set up a more advanced site, you'd need development knowledge, otherwise just simply use one of the various Wordpress membership plugins.
Do you want to do the technical work yourself or do you want someone who has done all the work for you?
Sorry to post here but anyone know of some membership + classified ads plugin for WP?
I'd like to learn but it is very complicated.
It's not as complicated as you think. Go to youtube, type in Wordpress Setup, follow the tutorials on there.
If you don't have hosting or a domain I'd suggest going with namecheap as their support will help you with any problems you will encounter.
Once you learn the basics everything will come naturally as you go.
is wordpress better than wix?
I only used wix once and it was for a landing page but I would say wordpress is way better. I'm sure that's what 90% of people on this forum are using. Definitely look into wordpress and don't think twice about it
Wordpress > everything else
I appreciate the advice guys, I do have dreamweaver though, it seems very complex.
