I've been searching for an answer for a number of days with no luck. I was hoping one of you might have dabbled with this before, and could point me in the right direction.
I am trying to find the correct combination of WordPress functions that would allow me to have a one-to-many parent/child relationship between users, so I can use this relationship to both show the parent user various data sets form the child user, as well as to track certain actions the child user takes, so I can apply functionality that is trigger by those actions ... and other possibilities like this.
I'd want it to be somewhat automated ... so, something like giving the parent user the ability to create a unique invite registration form, that when a new user registers, it associates that user to the person who gave them the invitation.
I can give you guys specifics of the project I need this for, so you have context. I figured I would start here, and perhaps spark up a conversation.
The first step is to be able to connect the users together using user meta. I'd try to do this manually first, so I know it is working the way I anticipate.
I hope this post is appropriate. I tried to find something that could clue me in, but I had no luck.
Thanks so much!
