Hello everyone!
This is my first post and hopefully you can help me!

I have developed a poker site (not sure if I can post links so I will leave that empty for now) where the intention is to have people register in my promotions. At the moment the site is built on wordpress and of course Im starting to realize that I need more. I have been reading a lot in the past days and I think I need a CMS system to be able to do more things with my site.

Some things I need:

1 - People should be able to register an account and then they could see their on user page with the points they make and the money they have to receive from us

2 - I want to have an affiliate section so people can promote us and make money by doing it. I have a logo and I will have to create banners and the html code for people to use. Then they will have to be able to see the normal affiliate reports.

I have no clue on how to do any of these 2...

I hope you can help me or give me a few links or sites that I should continue reading.

Best regards,
Miguel

P.S. In terms of CMS what is the best one?

Not knowing the answer to this, I used Google to see if there
are already some WP Membership modules (or add-ons):

It looks like you can add that to WP.

Now, how about member pages?
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=wordpress+member+pages&btnG=Search

Might be something there too?

I have not ever tried any of those for WP, but if you get it working,
let us know ... it might help the next person with your same situation.
