I don't know what is the best plugin to use for this but I want a WordPress directory installed as a sub-domain on my website.
I only want to have 10 categories that users can register themselves under. I want to have certain fields that users have to register under so if it is a plugin it may need to be modified. Here are the fields:
Email address (private, admin use only.)
website url (link to users external site)
Tags (select from tags provided - when a tag is clicked then all listings under that tag should show in the search results)
When a visitor clicks on a category, then a list of records of those registered should appear down the page. this is all pretty standard but I want some programming that when a visitor clicks on any of the website url's, they get redirected through a masked affiliate link, this should be as least obvious as possible.
All registrations should be accepted by admin before going live.
This does not have to be WordPress, any alternatives will be considered, I would be happy to hear alternatives and suggestions. As long as it is light weight, can blend in to my current theme and is easy to use and navigate. Should have good search functionality. Please address bids to Mr Andrews.
I have another requirement that I will discuss during interviews.
