i think this topic is quite similar to my needs, im currently working on a "listing" style website.
users will be able to sign up and list their holiday homes/properties similar to what you see here: http://www.ownersdirect.co.uk/brazil-north-east-2bed.htm
ideally, i plan to have users create a profile on my site, then subscribe with paypal to "publish" their listing.
so far I have installed the "memberprofiles" module which i THIK will work fine. I will just add lots more fields to the members page, and a has_many for all of the property images.
paypals subscription/recurring payments seems easy enough, i just need to tweak it all a little to get it working.
basically i wondered if anybody has any experience at all with this? will the memberprofiles module be suffice? what about if my users have more than 1 property? will they have to create a profile for each one? (thats not ideal!)
i'm guessing i need to store all of the properties as objects using DOM, then i can create pages dynamically as seen in this topic: http://www.ssbits.com/tutorials/2010/dataobjects-as-pages-part-1-keeping-it-simple/
can somebody help at all with how i start to create a "property" object that only the owner can create/edit?
obviously this all needs to happen in the front end as they wont have CMS access.
