I want to start a community site based on many users and content. Could
you please help me choosing the best kind of usertypes i should build
on, if i want to extend userdata but keep migration in mind for future
upgrades. a feature i would like to include are custom 'cropped' user
portraits with custom sizes, i successfully implemented this already
into custom membrane types - but did never try to upgrade this site.
so which kind of user or userfolder do you recommend?
* implement custom users based on membrane. i think the nicest way to
do this, but may break compatibility on future plone releases.
* extend plone's portal_memberdata and add those fields i need. if you
recommend this - how can i store custom/resizeable user portraits here?
* use a third party user authentication server, authenticating through
a PAS plugin?
* implement custom user types and set them as member folder in
portal_membership with custom workflow and additional archetype fields
* don't use plone
thanks a lot
