multiple users, checklists, limited access?

  1. Hello Bloggers!

    I've been using wordpress for years now, but I want to try out something more complicated then my usual blogging. The answers to some of my questions probably are scattered one the web somewhere, but because of lack of time, I thought I might find someone here who knows the answers.

    So...

    I would like to create a wordpress based birding website. Much like birding.hu, where birders can share their bird lists, observations etc.

    Is it possible to transform a wordpress blog somehow to resemble a tipical database site? Is it possible to add multiple users to a blog with limited access? I mean, a user can modify only one page (his page) on a blog, but can't change the rest?

    Also, we would like to lots of tables, with ringing data, and we would like to limit the access to these tables. Searching in the tables should be easy. Is this possible on wordpress?

    Can I/we add checklists on a page? Birders love checklists, to brag with the number of birds seen etc. How can I add this to a page? Also, can I set up these pages, so only one of many users can modify it?

    Can we make it somehow that the front page works and resembles this kind of pages: http://birding.hu/index.php?&Lang=en ?

    Best wishes,
    Attila Marton

    The blog I need help with is ringingromania.wordpress.com.

    You are describing a wiki, not a blog. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/06/13/whats-a-wiki/

  3. Thanks for the prompt answer! I think yes... and no. I don't know a lot about wikis, but if I understood correctly, anyone can modify a wiki page, and this is something that I don't want. The site must be constructed of many pages, every page should be managed only by one person (different for each page). And alas, it should be very easy to handle, so older birders can contribute to.

  4. I'm going to leave this thread for another Volunteer to answer. Technically I believe one could do this on a WordPress.org blog but IMHO it would be an administrative nightmare to manage.
