Ideas

Ability to post through the front end

    The majority of the time I'm going into wp-admin is for new posts. It would be great if I could just have the 'New Post' functionality sit at a secret URL on my site.. i.e. wordpress/my_secret_url_to_post. Just a place that I wouldn't have to login to admin every time to post.

    I'm just a couple weeks into WordPress so maybe this is a bad idea for a specific reason, but seems like it would work well. I would dig it.

    This is how all forums work! For making new post we should not go to administration section (back and). It should be only for real administration purposes, as I said, like forums! Good idea, yy4u2rel82!

    What happens if somebody else figures out this URL?

    "What happens if somebody else figures out this URL?"

    No, man, it should be like forums work, as I said. After you are loged in (and you can only log in with your administrators UN & PW) you get a fiew more options like: "edit this post", "delete this post", "make new post" or "make new category". And the backend should be used only for configuration and settings! That would be great.

    Yes this is a great idea!
    I'am currently looking for exactly that feature.

    But it should be only a additional feature, the backend shouldn't be touched by this.

    I suggest this:

    - a solution as WP-Plugin (to configure e.g.)
    - with a wp-addpost.php in WP-root providing the needed form elements (like in /wp-admin/edit-form[-advanced].php - should be configurable by the plugin) using the selected theme

    Of course frontend-posting is only capable for authorized users.

    Any other suggestions?
