    How do I create a function on my website to allow people to create their own pages under my domain?

    Explanation: I have decided I would like to add a function to my website which allows users to create their own pages to advertise their child care business. This could be text related, with some small images. My domain is currently www.atoz-childcare-directory.com so basically if a user would create their own page it would be somthing like http://www.atoz-childcare-direcotry....are/index.html

    thanks in advance for any responses.

    How much power will you be giving them?

    They can make a basic HTML page?
    They can upload their own graphics and photos?
    Will it be one page, or can they make several pages?

    How much they are allowed to do will affect the method
    you use, and how much security is involved. In any case,
    will you be the "goto" person when they have problems?
    It could end up being very time-consuming for you.

    You'll need to first deal with the "member" login and password.
    That would be a PHP/MySQL script. Do you have that part yet?

    Then, you can use something like TinyMCE as an online WYSIWYG
    text editor. Through that, they can also upload any images they need.
    The storage of the HTML and images would depend on their login ID.
    You could make a separate directory for each member?

    http://tinymce.moxiecode.com/

    Because you are controlling the template, and they affect the text only,
    you would do some manipulation of their submitted code to make it
    conform to your template ... removing or restricting any HTML that would
    exceed the boundaries of what they're allowed to do.

    TinyMCE also has a way for you to remove or disable features as needed.

    The nice thing is that TinyMCE handles the upload part.
    Another online editor is: FCKeditor http://www.fckeditor.net/

    You want an easy method? Go to http://wordpress.org/ and download wordpress.

    You read their 5 minute install and put it in ABCdaycare folder.

    Next you setup users. Those users can add pages and only edit the pages they add. Wordpress has ranks.
    • Administrator - Somebody who has access to all the administration features
    • Editor - Somebody who can publish posts, manage posts as well as manage other people's posts, etc.
    • Author - Somebody who can publish and manage their own posts
    • Contributor - Somebody who can write and manage their posts but not publish posts
    • Subscriber - Somebody who can read comments/comment/receive news letters, etc.
    Depending on your level of programing skills. I have programed a blog system with one user and it took me a good 2 days as a semi-pro at php mysql.

    Wordpress you can have up and running with solid functionality. Only thing you will need to do is design your header and footer to where it seamlessly integrates to your website.

    I had been using both Joomla and Mambo CMS. If you had already designed it on dreamweaver it only needs some small tweaks on your code.. Put all your images in a single folder, all css files in a single folder then you have to create an XML file which lists down all your files with there respective location images, CSS, HTML, PHP.
