User Profile Management

Someone September 10, 2014 by Someone


I'm hoping to create a site that allows me to give profiles sections to members where they can edit their public profile. I'm curious if anyone has had any experience with doing something similar with Statamic and possibly Raven Forms.

I'd like to give the visitor the ability to upload multiple images, profile description/name/etc. I'd want to be 100% certain that they can only edit their own profile.

Off the top of my head I think I can use the Raven forms and edit the settings to save the profiles as an .md file in the _contents folder.

Then I was looking into the membership section of the documentation and I seem to think that I can use some of the code there for registration/login and such.

When it comes to updating the form on the membership section of the documentation I am starting to wonder if I even need Raven forms, can I just contain all my custom profile details in the member fields.yaml?

I'd love to hear thoughts and feedback from others who may have experienced building something similar or have an idea of the best route/practices to take.

Thank you in advance.
