Thanks, Ed. I have some skill, but probably not enough. The learning curve would be steep.

I love Wikidot for its ease, flexibility, and features. But, I knew this might not be an easy issue.

We want to present the site in a way that is consistent with what we are trying to do: (a) nonlinear in appearance and approach (not like the typical courseware packages); (b) attractive, especially within the "entrance" pages (corresponds to a sense of "beauty" and aesthetics of nonlinear system; (c) easy to navigate between multiple perspectives or understandings from multiple contexts; and (d) easy communication among participants (e.g., Wikidot comments and forum are perfect). The kicker is money. My son insists that it should be free, but charge for extras, like one-on-one and group video conferencing. But, my co-conspirator would rather have a nominal fee for participation.

We could do a Wikidot pro site. Isn't there a way to password protect different pages? If so, would people have to enter a password every time they go to a new page? If so, that wouldn't be very workable.

But, I'll check out WordPress. Maybe we'll just have to do it the old-fashioned way with HTML.

Thanks again.

Rolling your own paid membership system on Wikidot would be challenging, but could probably be done. I don't know what the terms are for educational site status, but it seems like a misuse if paid memberships are allowed.

I'd suggest building a new site. I'm not trying to start a platform war, but it might be worth looking at other platforms like Wordpress that have existing plugins that will make building and managing a paid membership site a lot easier than what could be done in Wikidot's framework.

For example, a quick Google search found this post (and thousands more):
Wordpress Membership Plugins

Of course, if you have the time and skill, it might be fun to develop your own system in Wikidot.

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for my questions. If it is not, can you please direct me to the correct one.

A colleague and I are in the beginning stages of developing what we are calling an online salon where we can invite people to learn about specific content (multi-systems thinking) and to join in conversations about the material. We want to charge a small fee for access with additional fees for extra time-intensive features. At this point we have a couple of freely accessible sites up on Wikidot, but this one would be devoted to these online salons. Our current sites are free educational sites (e.g., http://internationalbatesoninstitute.wikidot.com).

So, my question is about setting up such a site. What is involved in doing a site where we charge for access to most features. Can this be done on an educational site? If so or if not, what do we need to do?

Thanks.

Wow, Timothy, the site is a big surprise ! And done on wikidot plattform …

It's possible, but it isn't very easy to make a responsive site. Unfortunately the best resource for making a Wikidot responsive site is the so-called Standard Template, and having not been updated since 2013, it's a little outdated. You're best bet is to start there and read Bootstrap's documentation.

If you really want to "edit" this page than you should use the emergency-help from the community abd stop the Rendering from this page: http://community.wikidot.com/help:emergency-help#toc3 which means you should expand your URL to http://the-kathmandu-moraira.wikidot.com/home:home/norender/true ( or click on this link).

Edit: Also important ist the fact, that you have defined on the home:_live template (home:_template , http://the-kathmandu-moraira.wikidot.com/home:_template ) 2 dataform fields "header" and "content" , and that is the reason for the 2 fields on the edit window:

[[div class="feature feature-header"]]
%%form_raw{header}%%
[[/div]]

%%form_raw{content}%%

[[module CSS]]
@import url('http://css.wikidot.com/theme:standard-cover/code_');
[[/module]]

=========
[[form]]
fields:
  header:
    label: Header
    type: wiki
    height: 6
  content:
    label: Content
    type: wiki
    height: 12
[[/form]]

One page on my Wikidot site comes up with a very small window when I go to edit without any options to preview or look at the history or content of files. How do I get the normal window back? Here is a screen shot of what I have when trying to edit the front page - all other pages show the normal edit window.
EditWindow.png

I am not sure… but will the splitting into 4 content ( 1-4)= nort help?
( http://www.wikidot.com/doc:templates )

[[div style="float:right; width: 200px; border: 1px solid #999; margin: 10px;"]]
%%content{1}%%
[[/div]]

%%content{2}%%

[[table]]
[[row]]
[[column]]
%%content{3}%%
[[/column]]
[[column]]
%%content{4}%%
[[/column]]
[[/row]]
[[/table]]

==== 

This will be content of the side bar.

==== 

The main content.

==== 

This will go into the left cell of the table.

==== 

And this into the right cell.

There are two things described above: splitting content and default page content.

Splitting allows you to create sections in the page and manipulate them separately in the template. Sections are separated by a series (4 or more) "equals" characters and are referred to as %%content{X}%% in the template. You can access them in any order within the template.

Using this you can easily create advanced layouts (like multicolumn, multi-navigation etc.) and make editing and maintenance much easier.

Either way, is there some way to use dual positions. If I go static, it will put a div at the bottom of the main content. If I go fixed or relative it uses the overall page.

I'd like it to be at bottom but visible on the page, and stop scrolling down before it goes over the standard wikidot bottom with the edit button and tag button and such.

Edit: if its just not possible to have a 'floating' position that stays within the confines of the main content, that's fine too, someone with more know can say that, and I'll stop tinkering with it. Just feels like there could be a way to do that.

Yep, anything with _template is a "Live Template" and is category-specific. They are extremely powerful.

Whereas "template:something" is just a regular page comment and acts as default text.
