I have a question:
I was trying to create a member Web site with Joomla, where users can extract reports from the forms I have created (which automatically create a database).

First, I am somewhat technically challenged. I'm okay with HTML, but don't know sql, php, etc.

and another explanation from a user forum I posted a question to:

I would like to create a site that provides the following:

User A signs up at my new Joomla site.

User A creates his own password and username.
User A logs in and sets up his daily meetings and appointments on a personal calendar, accessible only to him.
While User A is logged in today, he can also input what he ate for
breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks.
User A logs off.
User A comes back tomorrow and logs in, repeats the same actions.
User A would like to print out a report showing his calendar for the week. He also wants a separate report showing what he ate all week.

I have created a bunch of forms using JForms Joomla plug in, but can't figure out how to get to the next step of letting users generate their own reports based off the data they enter in those fields. So I'm researching other open source solutions, including SilverStripe.

My site will be like, where users pay, register, enter diet and exercise, etc. each day. I want them to be able to print off their own reports generated from each of the 7 very different forms I have created.
