I am deciding between a CMS or custom code…here’s what I need:
This is the sales site where people sign up for an account and it creates an independent templated site (under directory or sub domain of main site)
MINI SITES – all the same, independent with individual login etc. (but may login from main site?)
From this sub domain or directory the user signs in (need forgot password / remember me etc.) and edit their text / upload images etc..
Trying to explain it better:
Think of Myspace, you go to the myspace.com main page sign up for a new account, choose you site name (myspace.com/sitename) then can log into the account and edit the details on you page and upload image etc.
it will be a lot simpler than myspace that’s just an example, it will have a number of pages (text and images) but wont have any of the interactivity/messaging between friends.
