Minisocial Login/User Registration System

Recommended Posts

Hi, I need to provide a quite complex user registration form: description, subdescription, drop-down lists etc. 
Through this registration, users will be able to access and comment.
If someone responds to their comments, I would like a NOTIFICATION to appear when accessing their panel.
My social interaction project is just that, it seems simple, I don't need more.
Now I am undecided whether to use buddypress, elgg, or a native processwire system.
What do you recommend? 
If you recommend processwire, which modules should I install?
Do they work or is processwire too immature for that?

Even though I feel pretty confident in using and working with Processwire and building lots and lots of different projects with it... your task/idea would be still a challenge for me - in some kind. 

There is so much more involved than just a registration form, all those fields, user restrictions, notifications, and whatsoever.

To be fair... you will have to code and customize a lot here.
Installing a few (more) modules wouldn't do the trick.

If this is kind of a long-term or fun project to get more into coding and challenging yourself: just start, try and break things, rebuild your code, do whatever is needed.

If this is a paid job or something you really want to share with others: well... maybe look for something that already exists, that is tested and maintained. Like this forum. It's a super solid piece of software. Not that cheap but robust, tested and maintained.

ProcessWire is mature enough. But is not a ready-made solution for this niche, like the names you mentioned. I have made a system quite similar to what you've described here. But it was a lot of work. And it was made with PW to support dealing with objects already in PW.

So I would support @wbmnfktr here. If you got time budget and the skills (or want to aquire them), and you know you will use ProcessWire for some things not available out of the box in the ready-made solutions, than go for it using PW. If not and you just need a quick turnover, use one of a plethora of ready made stuff. Just test it out out before making a final decision.

      Hi. I'm currently stuck at the login page in my project. Once I enter my admin username and my password and hit login, nothing happens. The page just reloads. However, the URL changes from http://myipaddress/processwire to http://myipaddress/processwire/?login=1. I've checked all of my server settings, and to my knowledge, all seems to be fine there. I don't know where to go from here.. Thanks in advance!

      I have a client who is reporting that in the last couple of days they can no longer login to their site with their normal browser (Chrome). Using another browser or an incognito window works.
      I've tried logging into the site using the same login details in my usual browser (Firefox) and have had no problems.
      The site is a membership site and today other members are reporting the same problem.
      The site is running 3.0.148 and has the session handler DB and login throttle modules installed. It was recently upgraded to 3.x from 2.x. But no changes have been made to the site between the time when they were able to login OK and when the problem started happening.

      The Minimal Site works fine, but if I try to login as admin, I have no idea what the credentials are.
      I did not do the "install" process myself. The OVA came with everything set up, but there's no mention of the PW admin credentials being set to some initial value.
      Wondering if anyone else has tried the Bitnami OVA and if there's a simple answer.

      I'm creating a site where people can vote on dogs.
      To start with, I need the dog owners to register and then upload text, images, and videos about their dog. What I thought I could do is to create a page when the user registers. The page would be unique by using the member ID. So I would end up with:
           - Members
      Then each member page would have 1 or more children which would be the dogs that they have added.
      I just wanted to ask if that is a good way of doing things or if there's maybe a much simpler way of doing this.
      Thanks in advance for any advice.

      Dear processwire community,
      i have a problem in loginRegister module, i could not add custom field in login and register page.
      i read from plugin documentation. they are saying.
      " By default, the email and password fields are required for both forms. You may want to add more fields. To do this, you’ll need to add fields to your “user” template. You can add fields to your user template in the admin by going to “Setup > Templates > Show system templates > user”.

      but i could not find similar scenario like “Setup > Templates > Show system templates > user”
      i can see just "Setup > Templates" not seeing "Show system templates > user" in my admin panel.

      Please help me in this case that how i can add custom field in these two page.
      Regards AbdulQayyum
