Hi Everybody

ocPortal has been suggested to me as a CMS. It really comes highly recommended by talented and highly educated users…..I was hoping that if I can tell you what I need the CMS to do, you will be able to tell me if this is the right CMS for me..

I want to create a site, where a User can send me a "Set fee" by PayPal, and then be directed to a registration page where he will complete the registration and then have access to all the Attachments for one (1) year……..Can this be done?

I also want to treat this site as a "Store ", the only permissions that a user would have, is to only have download rights.

Many thanks in advance

Ron

It can be accomplished, yes.

What you could do is have free registration and then the user subscribes to have access to other parts of the site that guests and regular members do not. When they subscribe, they can be moved to another usergroup (private and hidden if you so choose).

Check this tutorial out and see if this is what you want. :thumbs:

This is a quote from that tutorial I think that is exactly what you are looking for:


Subscriptions


Adding a capability for a usergroup subscription

Subscriptions are an extension of products, adding in support for termination.
Members may also view their active subscriptions.

Usergroup subscriptions are implemented on top of subscriptions. Set up a usergroup description as follows:
  1. Add a usergroup that members will be able to subscribe to. Make sure it is not 'Open membership', otherwise people could join it without paying.
  2. Assign additional access to this usergroup (or remove access from some of the other usergroups!).
  3. Go to the Setup section of the Admin Zone, then the eCommerce icon, then the 'Add usergroup subscription' icon
  4. Fill in the form. Be aware that a '5' 'monthly' subscription means someone pays 'every 5 months'. It does not mean a subscription is paid every month and lasts for 5 months - subscriptions last indefinitely until the user chooses to cancel them.
  5. Provide a path for members to visit the purchase page so that they may activate their subscription. You do this via the site:purchase page-link, which can be inserted into a template, Comcode page, or most simply, onto your menu using the menu editor.

You can add as many usergroup subscriptions as you like. For example, you could make it cheaper to subscribe yearly than monthly.

Well-settled

I know I haven't posted in a long time but with what you NEED and WANT to do, I would personally suggest OCPortal.
