WordPress interactive?

  • Author
  • #609697


    I want to make a website from wordpress where the visitors can register to my website (not thru the regular wordpress register) and login to. I want them to be able to write articles in one category and would also like them to use a map where they can add locations and add comments (like good restaurants).

    What do I need?



    You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you’ll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don’t understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It’ll help people to answer your question.

    I was working on a site a few years ago where I tied the registration and log in parts of my website, wordpress, and bbpress together. It took extensive customization of the PHP files that makeup wordpress, but it was functional. If I remember correctly, whenever a user logged in from either the site, wordpress, or bbpress, the functions to log them into the others were called automatically.

    I don’t think you can do that with a wordpress.com hosted blog; I think you would need to host it somewhere else so you can customize the backend code.

    I don’t know anything about the mapping part of your question. Check the google maps API.


    Hello Seglarunt,

    I understand that you want to create an interactive wordpress website that is more of a social website than just a singly authored blog. It is unfortunate that wordpress.com does not allow us to edit the PHP files as all of us are using the same theme template.

    You might want to adopt wordpress.org which is even more seamless and installs within 5 minutes! And check out a better support community over here: http://wordpress.org/support/

    If you still want to stick with WordPress.com, Id recommend you use WordPress,com’s inbuilt Users architecture to your benefit. It is excellent and you can control user’s privileges too. Check out: http://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/

    and http://en.support.wordpress.com/adding-users/

    Hope it helps, Cheers!
