I'm pretty new to web design in general, so I'm not really sure how to get started with this. I have a wordpress site that I would like to be able to manage user profiles on. The built in account management stuff works great for regular logon/off sessions, but there are some features I would like to make available for our users.
I maintain a wellness site and I would like to allow users who are logged on to be able to click a button that says "Claim Points" or something similar for events they participate in - when they click the button, it would automatically update their total wellness points on their profile. Can anyone suggest where I should start on this? I'm assuming PHP might be an easy way to interact with users, but I'm really not sure where to begin.
