    I'm adding the shortcode of [quick-post-page] in my page and nothing is showing up? I have searched and the faq's is not clear w/ just a simple copy/paste and examples of how to use the sCodes.

    I seem to be having the same problem. WP3.2.1 w/Suffusion 3.9.2 theme and BuddyPress 1.5.1. Placed QuickPostPage widget in its widget area along with a text widget holding some text. Created page "New Post" with shortcode [quick-post-page]. When I do a 'view page' from the admin panel I see a page with both the text widget information and post form. When I add this page to my menu and call it from the menu, I get ONLY the text info and NO Quick Post form. It looks like it is ignoring the shortcode.
    Any idea where I should look for the problem?

    Upon further testing I found that part of the problem is that QuickPostWidget is ROLE dependent. Or maybe it is just following WP role rules and only appears if it thinks the user has the rights to publish. Whatever the case the Quick Post page appears for Admin/Editor/Author roles but nothing below that. That’s OK if I can find that module that lets me define the rights for the different roles. Then I can simply set Members or Subscribers to be able to publish and it should work.
    In the meantime I discovered three other problems.
    1. If the user is an Author or Editor the Quick Post box will appear, but only the <Post Title> tag will be visible. The Content area does NOT allow you to enter any text. This is corrected by disabling the Visual Editor in the Quick Post options area. Then the <Post Content> tag appears and the content area will accept input. Unchecking the box in the options area removes the <Post Content> tag. This is reproducible.
    2. If the user (Author or Editor) publishes something and then clicks on the ‘Edit’ link in the post, they are taken to the backend WYSIWYG editor rather than to the Quick Post page. I want my members to be able to post news items but I don’t want them to be able to screw up the format/style of the site by all kinds of different fonts, etc so I don’t want them to have access to the WYSIWYG editor. Is there any way to make the QuickPost editor the default for non-Admins???
    3. For the most part my site is only open to members, but it does have some pages posts visible to the public (not logged in user). The DEFAULT setting for posts and pages is “Members ONLY”. Using the ‘backend’ WYSIWYG editor, the author can select t o whom the post will be visible (members only, non-members, etc.). Any post written with the QuickPost Widget is visible on the ‘public’ face of the site, i.e. to everyone. That’s a big problem for us. Any thoughts??
