User Submitted Posts

User Submitted Posts enables your visitors to submit posts and images from anywhere on your site.

Adds a basic form via template tag or shortcode that enables your visitors to submit posts and upload images. User-submitted posts optionally include tags, categories, post titles, and more. You can set submitted posts as draft, publish immediately, or after some number of approved posts. Also enables users to upload multiple images when submitting a post. Everything super-easy to customize via Admin Settings page.
