Post From Site
Post From Site with multiple custom post types (3 posts)

    Hi

    I'm developing a site with three custom post types that I would like users to be able to post to from the front end.

    I know Post From Site allows for one custom post type to be chosen in the settings, but is it possible to override this in the shortcode or via php in a template so that I could have three versions of Post From Site with a different custom post type for each one?

    Thanks

    It doesn't look like it's possible with the plugin right now, but I'd like to be able to do it too. Hopefully the developer will add the feature.

    This can be accomplished by uploading the Widgets on Pages plugin and creating a new sidebar for each instance of the post-from-site widget you want to run. Then simply add the shortcode for Widgets on Pages, relative to the widget instance, in your page (one for each page, or several on one page). The only issue with this is that it will stretch the widget out (it will not be the css for the page post-from-site, but rather the widget post-from-site). To fix this you can simply adjust the css in the quick-post-widget.php file and match it to that of the page post-from-site (considering you only want to use the page post-from-site and not the widget one).
