One frequently asked question from our users is how to build a membership directory where site visitors can register, manage their profile, and connect with others. Such a system gives website owners many advantages – it allows them to build an online community, test new ideas, and potentially open up more revenue opportunities.
Traditionally, building a custom membership application is both costly and complex. However, with Caspio’s cloud database platform, you can easily create your own membership application and modify it on-the-fly as your needs evolve. A Caspio-powered membership application can also be password-protected so that only authorized users can log in to access certain information or services.
To help you get started quickly, we have created a step-by-step video that shows how to build a membership application and embed it on a Yola website in less than 30 minutes, all without writing a single line of code.
In this video, you’ll learn how to:
- Build a registration form for new members
- Add password protection for registered members to login and update their profile
- Add a searchable directory to find and connect with other members
- Set up a centralized database to manage all the data
The membership application can be easily tailored for different purposes: business listings, product catalogs, service listings, employee/client directories, partner portals, buyer’s guides, and the list goes on.
