Front-end custom form to post (9 posts)

    I'm looking for a plugin or example code that allows me to place a custom form into one of my pages (hopefully the front-end) to allow users to enter information that will then be saved as a single post.

    I have an events calendar and am currently using flutter. I want to let users post an event, but the current template is difficult and it is often done wrong. I can create a form with Event Date, Event Location etc, but I need to get it to save as a post so that the Event Calendar plugin I am using will pick it us and add it to the calendar.

    I have tried More Fields and hacks made from QuickPost, but nothing really fits the bill.

    Any ideas?

    Hi,

    This is a cool feature!
    However, I'm a fan of the "contact form 7" Just wonder how that works as a front end post editor.
    And cform is only for uploading pictures to a gallies right?

    Have you considered Formidable Pro?

    A review of Formidable Pro Unlimited has just been published. I think it's one of the best form plugins you can get.

    sorry but Contact Form 7 has file upload in non paid version !!!

    plus ...

    what I need is tu have a shortcode in post / page
    which allows users with special rank to see upload field !!
    then they upload file ... the uploaded file/s would be than listed in a box at the end of post so other users with predefined ranks can see them and download them

    plus later when I decide to delete a post wit files included the files would be automaticly deleted from server too
