Can the CMS side of WB do this?

Post by etcbbu » Thu Oct 10, 2019 8:27 pm

Hi all,

Got a potential new client who wants a website with a Login system in-place, such that when people join, they can log-in to a .com website we're going to do for them, where they can see tailored-content to them, individually. I'd like to use WYSIWYG Web Builder and the CMS tools associated with WYSIWYG Web Builder to do it. (But, I will need to set up a MySQL database from within our web-space also, in order to use the CMS functionality too, correct? )

What the Registered Users need to be able to do is, once they log-in, someone who would essentially be the "Administrator" of this .com website I'm thinking of using the WYSIWYG Web Builder CMS system to do, would need to be able to push tailored content towards each Registered-User of our website who logs in, individually.

The premise of the website is like "healthy living", and whatnot. And so, the Administrator will sort of push YouTube videos, or put up a file-download, or maybe provide a URL hyper-link to different registered-users, give them workout-regimen programs or healthy-living-plans, individually.

It doesn't need to be anything flowery or fancy, as far as front-end graphics and things go, either. Just, does the CMS functionality of WYSIWYG Web Builder have the potential to have sort of an "Administrator" that can push content to the Registered-Users in this way?

I really want to use WYSIWYG Web Builder to do this with them.

I suggest that you check out the CMS demo template and set it up in a temporary folder on your website so you can play with it and see if this will work for you.

Does the default CMS that of WYSIWYG Web Builder have (the first link you sent) require that an Administrator must have the WYSIWYG Web Builder software on their hard-drive in order to make CONTENT-edits to pages?

Or, is only someone who is going to edit STRUCTURE the only one who needs to have of WYSIWYG Web Builder software on their hard-drive in order to make STRUCTURE-edits, but even without the of WYSIWYG Web Builder software on their hard-drive they could still do CONTENT-edits?

I'm getting the following error:

Code: Select all

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in /homepages/6/d310230039/htdocs/wbcms/content.php:54 Stack trace: #0 {main} thrown in /homepages/6/d310230039/htdocs/wbcms/content.php on line 54
Whenever I try to go here:

https://www.ktravisj.com/wbcms/administrator.html

and try to click "Content".

What's going on? Whenever I go into phpmyadmin for this particular MySQL database I have created on my web-space, it seems to not have any tables..? What's the deal? I know I filled out all of these fields:

MySQL Server
MySQL Database [Name]
MySQL Username
MySQL Password
(which were all what my host GAVE ME when I Created the MySQL database, except for the" password", which I made up myself, which, yes, I made up when I was creating the MySQL database)

In both the

CmsAdmin1 object on the administrator page
CmsView1 object on the content page

But, why is my MySQL database seemingly empty? Am I supposed to fill out the fields under "Email", within the "CmsAdmdin1"object, before all of this can work correctly..?

Please set the PHP version to 'php5 - php7' in the Page Properties.

Perfect! Got it working!

Now let me ask this--is there a way to hide this entire CMS-created site behind a password-protect? Like, either the Single-Page Protect, or in accordance with setting up the "Login" tool via MySQL?

Yes, the CMS can be used in combination with the login tools.

In 'allow users', you can specify which users have access.
