    Best way to add community features to an existing website

    Hello,

    I have a website that I would like to add to it some community features. I would like the visitors to be able to sign-up, write comments and give ratings. It would also be nice (but not required) if they could also have their own profile pages and are able to interact with each other.

    Is there any PHP script or online service that can help me do this?

    Thanks

    When you say "existing website", is it already written in PHP?
    Are you planning to run code within existing web pages on your site, or do you want to add a new section with these features?

    Hello,

    Existing website that already runs on PHP. Some of the features will need to be on existing pages (e.g. reviews and ratings of existing items) and some other features can take up the whole main content of the page (e.g. login, user profile etc) but still will need to integrate with the rest of the site (header, footer, sidebar, styles, sessions etc).

    Any ideas?

    So if you are simply adding new sections to your site, that is very easy. You can add something like vBulletin, or maybe even phpLD with the ratings and comments mod.

    If you are trying to actually add PHP programming to existing pages, that may involve a little more, and you may want to consider hiring a programmer for this task.

    (sorry for the slow reply).
