Well, I guess the only part I'm stuck on is whether to buy the product or not, because I need to know I can get it up and running to my requirements without too much effort. I'm not asking you to create a video unless you feel it would be beneficial to others as well.
First, I tried contacting Webassist in a pre-sales fashion, and the responce I received was that it would require simple customization and that I could receive help through the forum. So here I am. I applogize in advance if this is only for current owners of the product.
I did buy Site Sculpter and am learning this product to help me get up to speed, since CS5 and all their training videos still left me with way too much to learn. I thought that InContext Editing was going to work until that feature was killed. Site Sculpter as an entry-point looks great but it's also led me to believe I'll need to also purchase PowerCMS to maintain the site (but I digress...).
I'm the webmaster for a large Boy Scout Troop. We currently use Yahoo Groups which works well for calendar, files, photos and protected communications, but I'd like a bit richer content, and have started my own website. In order to maintain member privacy, we restrict access to the Yahoo Groups pages by making it a private group, and sending out pre-approved invitatons or authorizing a member request that finds our group from another reference. No one can join unless we know they are in our troop. I don't feel that just anyone that fills in a form should be granted immediate access. I get an automated email from YG when someone requests access and It's easy to approve or deny. What I don't get is the full name of the requestor or the name of the scout. Some email addresses give me a hint, but not always. I'd like more information on the membership as well. I looked at the feature tour videos and read some of the forum threads so I think it's easy enough to get that working but that's secondary to my basic need at this point.
I purchased another "security access" product which requires me to manually assign & maintain passwords to our website, but it's too much to handle with a 369 member group. I'm only a volunteer, not a paid web developer.
I like all the features that your product shows, but I simply don't know what the customization would entail when you say "edit the user table". Is this something in your product? Because I can't see anything in cpanel that would allow me to do this. One man's "easy" is another man's "WTH?". ;-)
