I've just started Wordpress-programming a few days ago, but I've been programming php 5-6 years.
I've been writing some code -added custom taxonomies, custom post-types/fields etc. Now I want to be able to store members for a club. There are a lot of plugins out there, but not exactly what I'm looking for. Secondly I don't want to rely on other plugins because you never know when they stop getting supported. Thirdly - I want to learn the basics of WP-programming.
Therefore my question: I want to store members (they should only be able to register at front - and admin should be able to add/edit users backend)
What is the right approach to do this? Is it to use Wordpress native users? Or should I create a new taxonomy called club_users? (or something more explaining for the club)
