How to allow anyone to write posts on my blog (9 posts)

    Hi,
    I'm looking to create a community news site that would look and function like the Huffington Post, and it's not clear to me that the themes will allow anyone to register on the front-end, and be able to not just leave comments but to actually write posts. I'm sure this is possible but would appreciate if anyone can clarify how it works, if it is a standard or premium feature etc.

    If you have any theme recommendations for a news site that would accommodate community contributions would also appreciate it it.

    You might want to consider looking into BuddyPress and WordPressMU

    you can allow anyone to post quite easily.

    In general settings you can set up to let people register

    Also, you can pick default access level for thiose people. Contributer level would allow them to post.

    Hi,

    There's an even better way, try the Gravity Forms plugin. Create a new form using just the post fields, you can even let users post images. Then create a new page called "Add a post" and on that page add your post form you just created. Gravity forms is the best forms plugin for WordPress, hands down. Users can go to your "add a post" page (call it what you want) and start creating content.

    Here's an example, click on my "your voice" page and post to your hearts content without registering.

    Yes it will, however you have full publish control over users posts. Make sure the form settings are set to publish. This will enable their posts to to be added to your main page.
