Front end edition with custom meta boxes
As WordPress and most of all BuddyPress is becoming more and more social, there SHOULD be a way in WordPress to post from the frontend.
I wrote a plugin for this(One Quick Post - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/one-quick-post/), but I think it should be developped really further.
Basically, my idea was that this should be able to
-handle custom types & taxonomies
-allow guest posting (mapped to a "guest" user); with a secret key to allow the user to edit his post later
-load any meta box from the backend, so it would have to be registered only once and could be called the same way by the frontend or the backend.
Some filters could remove/add specific stuff for the frontend.
-allow to "split" the frontend edition/creation in several steps (eg. 1) post title + description / 2) post categories + tags / 3) custom fields); so it would be easier for the user to follow the creation process
Lots of people are waiting for this feature !
Love to see it as a core plugin, but definitely not in the core WP code.
+1 for WP whether for core or core plugin
+2 for BuddyPress
Core with option to turn off in admin would be just like a plugin. Who better to develop than core developers?
this is already doable. def not something to be included in the core. maybe a plugin dev will pick it up. or you could write it yourself? i frequently write my own plugins, even tho other plugins exist to do what i want, i just want to have better control over it and be able to make changes easily later on. plus, it's fun.
Moving to plugin land as the general opinion suggests.
+1 for front-end posting/editing for Multisite users.
We really don't want our blog members to go through a different branded/layout back-end to post and edit new blog entries.
WordPress User Frontend (http://tareq.wedevs.com/2011/01/new-plugin-wordpress-user-frontend/) works great with dashboard and editing profiles for multisite blog members, but the posting is not working.
Yes it is disapointing to have more than one interface.
A plugin will be great.
I helped build a plugin that tries to solve that, all be it in a more generalist approach. WCK Front End Posting.
You have to setup your forms first with exactly what you need from front end posting, but that's the only extra step.
i have developed a plugin to post from widget or from page using shortcode .
plugin exists here
