    My father would like me to create a site for him where he can post the articles that he writes on sports and coaching practices. He would like it to be more than a blog in the since that he would like to charge people a nominal fee (preferrably monthly, but annually would work) in order to access his information. I know that this style of site is popular with porn and even some newpapers use this in order to gain access to some of their articles.
    I am a novice web designer and am familiar with html/ css and light php. I was going to try and use an open source blog creator like WordPress or something like it and try and implement the pay system. I was wondering if anyone has ever done anything like this and could offer some advice or at least point me in the right direction.
    Thanks in advance!

    You should use WordPress ... go in and customize the PHP script to
    only display if a session has been activated (by a membership log-in).

    You could even display only two lines from each entry for non-members ...
    to entice them to become members.

    My advice would be to hire someone who could combine a membership
    PHP system with WordPress. I'm wondering if there might already be a
    WordPress Plug-In that does just that ... worth searching for maybe?

    This might be a place to start ...
