    editing pages on the front-end Link to this post

    Hi Everyone

    We are looking at building a small module that assist in letting users edit pages on the front-end. Here are some notes about our ideas:

    User can….

    1. go to a page to request to become a member and complete details (a la forum module)
    2. user is validated by (decided in _config): a. A. confirms email b. B. by admin
    3. add / edit pages (which ones are decided in _config.php)
    4. can update their details (a la forum module)

    Potential Classes:

    MemberAdminPage + FORM:
    • add member,
    • edit member details
    • works out a way to validate new members: o send email to their email address to check validity o AND/OR get admin to select pages that the member can edit inCMS?
    • what pages can the current user add? And where in the Sitetree?
    • What pages can the current user edit?
    • Adds extra functions to Page Class to allow the page to be added in the front-end (e.g. something similar to getCMSFields() – you may have getFrontEndFields())

    Has anyone done anything like that? I would love to get some input.
