Hi guys,

I've always used WP but I want to swtich to PW. I'm not sure ....

I'd like to know if it's possible to create a website for an online photo contest.

The participants of the competition could create their own account, in which they upload their photos. The photos uploaded remain visible only to themselves and the judges.

From their account they can make the "entrance fee" payment.
The judges of the competition can create their own account... entering they see the photos of the participants and vote photos

At the main page I imagine the title of the competition, a button to read the regulation, and a button to register.

The website should be in Italian and English.

Thank you!!

Processwire is light years ahead compared to Wordpress. It depends however on your dead line. When does it need to be ready ? If you just started with Processwire it is going to take some time before you know how to handle it's potential.

We have used ProcessWire for exactly this many times.

It's VERY straight forward using the API. Now, if you don't feel confident in PHP then I would still suggest using WordPress and a plugin, but if you are willing to learn, it will be absolutely worth it as you can built it exactly how you want it and you can use the skills you have learnt for building other things in future. 

The ProcessWire API is very versatile and consistent, this means learning a way to do one thing such as using hooks gives you worlds of knowledge to do other things. It doesn't take long to pick up the entire API as it's very straight forward. 

If you need any help, let me know.

It would be impossible for us to give a time scale on your speed of learning. For the entrance fee if you use https://www.foxy.io/ - you could have something like this built in two weeks (judging that your learning as you go along). I would also encourage you to learn AJAX if you don't already know it as it would help improve the user experience for this.

Here is the good news ..... you don't need to be a full blown php coder to start using Processwire. Neither you need to be an expert in javascript.

Even with the php basics you can already start making websites with Processwire e.g.

<?php

echo "this";
echo "that";
echo "<img src='$image->url' alt='$image->description' />";

access a page

$pages->get("/path/to/page/");

output your pictures in a gallery

foreach($page->images as $image) {
$large = $image->width(500);
$thumb = $image->size(100, 100);
echo "<a href='{$large->url}' rel='lightbox-smarts'><img src='{$thumb->url}' alt='{$thumb->description}' /></a>";
}

?>

Some basic php syntax stuff

Did you already go through the Tuto's ?

Start it up with Processwire

A good read about Processwire and WordPress

Anyway, you are not going to find any better api out there than the Processwire api.

Feel free to always come back here and ask questions.
