[Pro] user registration and online payment

Hi!

I have a need to make a simple site that explains several upcoming events and presentations. That’s no problem for me, I’m a decent FW user. But it also requires people to register (username and password, different for every user) and a place to pay for the event online (likely VISA card number, not only Paypal)

My coding skills are close to non existent, as are my database skills (I can build and run a database but never made one for a web site)

Are there any solutions out there that are fairly easy, that require minimal coding that anyone can recommend?

Thanks!!

You might find some kind of username/password script on one the script
sites like HotScripts, PHPJabbers etc.

As for payment processors there are numerous pre made options in
addition to Paypal, many quite nice. But whether they will suit your
needs I can’t say.

What script will work best depends on the specific requirements. If your
needs are simple you can probably find something. But if you can’t find
a “canned” script that does exactly what you need out of the box then
you will need to modify (hack) it which can be a rabbit hole of pain.

There are a lot of variables but the first step is searching through
those script sites for something that gets you most of the way there.

Another potential way to approach it is by using a CMS. Many have tools
or plugins that allow easy and convenient management of users/passwords
etc. Plus many also have plugins for different types of common payment
processors. The benefit being a more unified and integrated management
platform vs. a patchwork of disparate scripts you’re trying to tie together.

In either case you have some research to do.

You could look at Perch CMS. That would cover the login out of the box by use of the members app. There’s even an Events app. But like all this stuff you’d need to do work with the basic setup at achieve something.

Thanks David. I just had a look at Perch and it looks really interesting! Have you used it with Freeway before? My understanding is that I can build a site in Freeway as always and then add Perch (Runway) to it to allow visitor registration and ecommerce. Is that your understanding? Any wisdom you can impart on its use alongside Freeway?

Hi Brian,

Perch has been my CMS of choice for a new site. I’ve done quite a few sites using Perch. The design/frameworks are created in Freeway (at the moment - let’s see what the future brings though I might probably end up hand coding, There’s still a speed benefit in Freeway building the base templates).

It should be understood I’ve arrived at this position from a long path of using Freeway (1999). Eventually you start adding PHP to Freeway sites, understanding CSS and incorporating scripts and CMS’s like Perch.

Of course Perch or Runway comes at a cost. But all the sites I do are commercial projects for organisations like Golf Clubs (they need Member logins).

Perch is easy to get going with say by creating a Welcome section on the home page including the following on a Freeway page…

<?php 
perch_content('Welcome'); // html textarea
?>

Note: Using Walt’s Crowbar Action (Invaluable! as it removed the P tags)

And in Perch give it a template to use. You control the content in that temple. Then either style that section using Freeway’s CSS, or I create external style sheets and hand code them to control the Perch content that inserted in the Freeway page.

The Perch Template you control to add anything you like. Typically solution are list and detail pages. The staple for client content. A typical example of list and detail would this site’s courses page… http://www.elitegoalkeepinguk.com/courses.php. (Note all the content is produced by the client using Perch. Freeway is the page framework ~ boxes)

I am available to build a Perch site if anyone does not to get their hand dirty using code.
