PLEASE HELP: Account System


Recommended Posts

Hello, My name is Kyle, I recently started an online eSports community. The website is www.eSportSpot.com. I have been making websites for a long time, about 8 years, as a hobby in my free time. However, I have never advanced my coding knowledge past advanced HTML and some very basic JavaScript. I am looking to create a member account system for this website, but I don't want to use an online service (I want to create my own system that I can modify, tweak, and develop exactly the way I want it). I have done a little bit of research about what programming language would be the most efficient and easiest to learn to achieve my goals, but I can not make a decision. I was wondering if anyone in this great community would be willing to help me out. Here are the things that I want to be able to do: 1. Visitors to my website able to create an account using an email address.2. Verification email sent to provided email address.3. Upon being verified, members will be taken to a place where they can edit their profile (picture, bio, website, email, etc.) These are the basic goals that I would like to achieve. On top of that though, some other things that I would like to are: 1. Program my own simple, clean, professional looking message forums.2. Implement system where members can send direct private messages to one another.3. Implement system where I can mark certain members as a 'Featured Author', and then have a page where those members can write and post their own content to my website, without me having to upload the files to my server, or give them the password to my hosting cpanel or anything like that. I understand these goals I have can be somewhat advanced and time consuming, but I do not mind. I am very eager to learn a new programming language and to make this website a success, and I'll do whatever it takes to do so. So, finally, I am basically asking, what language would be the best to achieve these goals? And, when answering, please provide a link(s) to websites that use that language so that I can see it in action. Also, if it makes a difference (I'm not sure if it does or not) the hosting provider that I use is www.BlueHost.com. They have a great cPanel and they support a lot of stuff. Thanks so much in advance for any help you guys can give me! It is greatly appreciated :) ~ Kyle 'OneShot' Ennis

any server side language can do these things. PHP would be good choice as most of webhost supports it and it is quite popular. so it is also increase chances of getting help from peers and third party libraries. In this forum most of people use PHP.If you are not already in PHP best would be starts from the basic from w3schools site and php.net site.

Sounds very much like a Forum software that you need.User profiles, sign-ons, messaging, and most Forums allows "groups" which you could use to offer various levels of authority.PHP and MySql are a great combination for this application.
