7. User Profiles:

User Profiles allow the administrator to view, edit and delete user related information. Logged-in users can view and edit their own account related information: Change password, e-mail, security question and answer, personal information (name, address etc.) and avatar image.

8. File Explorer:

Utilizing PHP and JQuery, the File Explorer allows the administrator to view the entire structure of the site and view/edit any text based file (txt, html, css, js, xml, php, sql etc…) in the browser using a JQuery modal dialogue.

12. Flexible Page Protection:

To protect any PHP page within your site, you use a simple copy and paste script. You can edit this script, by simply listing the Security Roles (Groups) that you want to allow to view the page. There is no limit to the number of Roles you create in the database and use in your pages. You can create Roles for a single user account or for an unlimited number. Very simple, very powerful.

13. PayPal Subscriptions Manager for Premium Membership:

The PayPal Premium Membership module is a fully featured user management system with PayPal Subscriptions integration. It allows the administrator to create and manage an unlimited number of subscription options and rates. With a single additional line of code snippet, you can verify Premium Membership Access for any of your premium content pages. In addition to the powerful authentication and authorization system mentioned above, you can make sure that premium content pages are only viewed by paying customers.

PLEASE NOTE: File upload uses PHP’s built in file upload, and the upload file size will depend on your server settings in php.ini. This facility is not meant for distributing very large files. Example for php.ini settings can be found in the web.config.php file.

Documentation and Installation Instructions:

Documentation and installation instruction are available online at the Live Preview / Demo Site. Installation is very simple: 1. Deploy the database script, 2. edit connection string, 3. add your email address to the configuration file, 4. Upload files to your hosting server.
