    How do I allow users to post? Or create a Frontend profile so that they can post?

    Did you get your question answered? If not, I hope I understand what you are asking.

    Users have to be registered, and their role (http://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities) determines whether or not they can post at all. Once you have the "New Post" page set up, that is where they will go to post.

    You actually don't need to set up a second or special profile for the front end. Instead, you keep them out of the back end. (It's great that the plugin includes this as well.)

    Under WP User Frontend>Settings>Others, select the Admin Area Access level that you want. This is where you can choose which roles are allowed to access the back end.

    Is that what you meant?

    Thanks for your help. I created an example user as a "subscriber" and made a post. The only thing is that it is giving me a 404 error when I press the submit as the "Subscriber" user, but it actually is posting the post.

    I guess i just have to adjust the landing page after it is posted to a "Thank you for your post" or something of the sort.

    Thanks for you help again!

    Oh, interesting. That did happen to me, actually, when I was changing things around (custom post types vs. post).

    Does it happen when you post as an admin? If so, you might want to check the shortcodes. If not, could it have something to do with those permissions?

    Otherwise, I think you have a good workaround. But I don't think you should have to do that.

    And anytime! I'm far from an expert, lol, but I'm glad to help when I can. :)
