Hi all.

I wondered if it possible to build the following site using Silverstripe with not too much of a learning curve. I am a php developer with a few years under my belt, long time asp dev so am happy to get my hands dirty...

A Member Site with advanced search option.

1. I'd like a person to be able to register on the site entering their personal details along with a set of skills (about 10 form fields). Admin need to manually 'activate' registration request and auto send email to confirm this has happened.

2. A user of the site would be able to search through the database of registered users using a form with multiple fields to narrow down their results.

I suppose it's a bit like a real estate website but using people and their skills instead of properties.

Many thanks for any help or pointers.
