I don't know where to begin with this, creating the PDF magazines and hosting them is not the problem, it is managing the downloads and hence my posting here.
There is another Print Magazine (I will post the link if allowed) that has a website that also offers its magazine as a paid PDF download (cheaper than the print mag) and it seems to be managed rather well.
You subscribe, log in your account, get email updates with a user-specific URL to download the next issue.
Is there any kind of service that is available for managing this sort of thing?
I do not want to just post a single URL for everyone to download from.
One CMS that comes to my mind which certainly would support username dependent URLs for one PDF resource is Typo3. It is free software, but it is not really easy to learn. If you have not much software experience, typo3 might therefore not be the right choice for you.
free is good, but not required.
I can budget the cost of the CMS into the subscription and would rather have something semi-easy for me to manage rather than something that is free and difficult for me to deal with .
I can't even do CSS yet!
any tips on shopping for a CMS would be welcome.
such as: What to look for, what to stay away from when trying to shop around for this.
at least I got an acronym to use now.
