Pre Purchase Question
I would like to run past you what I am intending to achieve, to find out if Anahita is a good way to go. If you think Anahita is a good fit then I will purchase a Premium account.
First of all I would not call myself a coder but I am a quick learner. I have worked with many sites for many years with a fair bit of database experience as well. That being said I want to build out the project I am envisioning in a way that is very stable, integrated, fast, and secure.
What I want to create is a website with different functionality in areas of the site that I will explain briefly below. This would include community features all through the site to feel like a unified user experience across all the offerings on the site.
Aside from sections of the site dedicated to information which is to say text and pictures.
I also want an area of the site to be an online school. The school area would have perhaps 10 or so courses in it. Each would be a paid course that people would have to buy to gain access to. The courses would have video, audio, text, forms, etc… It is important that some courses have to be taken in a specific order. For example you could not take the advanced course until you complete the beginner or intermediate courses.
Another part of the site would be a video area. There would be a free area and a paid area. The paid area would be accessed by subscriptions of 1 month or 6 months. Also part of the video area would be the need to offer for small extra fee special videos for special occasions, or also old videos in archives that people might want to gain access to an old special video to add to their account or monthly subscription.
There are other areas of the site as well, but are just basic things like blogs, discussions, etc...
It would be good if this could be under one roof so there is a unified user name, password, and profiles for the users, rather than multiple websites. Though perhaps that may not be optimal, it might be best to keep things separate with bridges or something.
I also have an online product catalogue with about 100 or 200 products that I would like to connect as well. I am thinking of using a hosted e-commerce platform for this and link via templates, menus and user account bridging, or perhaps something different entirely.
