    Members editing content best approach

    Hi all,

    I need to plan a project where members would login from the front end to access their content (a few page items per member and a node for each members information) and edit that content.

    can anyone advise on the best approach in order to achieve this please?

    Hi Roger

    What kind of content would the members be editing? Is it clean text, rich text, images etc?

    This should be quite easy to achieve using the API's to update the nodes in the Umbraco backoffice.

    You can see the API documentation here - there should be some examples that show the basic concepts. Please note their is a difference wether you're using umbraco 4 or 6 and wether you're using MVC or webforms.

    Hope this helps a bit - Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Hi Jan, It's v6 and yes you're correct, basically the system were planning will allow venues to edit their basic information. General page items and images from document types. They will also be able to view reviews and ratings on them from customers etc. we will offer much more in terms of functionality in the future but for now, that's basically it.

    1, member registers 2, registration confirmed 3, member logs in 4, member edits profile and adds images via front end form fields.

    Each member would have their own venue node, sub nodes for reviews etc

    1,2 and 3 are no problem but just wanted the best approach for 4.

    Thanks for the reply, I'll look into the documentation you suggested

    Hi, i've tried to follow the older video tutorials but with v6.1.6 i think most of it is obsolete.

    Are there any working examples of usercontrols that update node content?
