Post From Site

Description

Add an interface on your site to write a post (or page, or anything), without having to go into the admin section. Also allows for ‘anonymous’ posting (not logged in users, still asks for name/email) with a recaptcha. This makes Post From Site a perfect plugin for your user reviews, a suggestion box, or even a very basic forum site.

After install, you can display a form on your site via a widget, shortcode, or PHP code in your theme. See this page for further documentation.

Screenshots

  • Post From Site in action (default 'twentyeleven' theme): inserted onto a sticky post using the shortcode.

Installation

  1. Unzip pfs.zip
  2. Upload all files to the /wp-content/plugins/post-from-site directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Use your choice of include:

  1. Add a widget in the Widgets section
  2. Add a shortcode to a page/post/CPT
    • Post From Site’s basic shortcode is [post-from-site]. It has three options: popup defines whether the form will show on the site, or only after clicking a link (defaults to false, not a popup). link defines that link’s text (defaults to ‘quick post’). cat restricts the post to a specific category (defaults to none).
  3. Add PHP code to your template files.
    • <?php $pfs = new PostFromSite(); $pfs->form(); ?> will output the form. You can pass the same variables as in the shortcode.

FAQ

The popup won’t show up / I’m redirected to a white page on submit

Check that you have the javascript and css files in the plugin’s folder (post-from-site). A problem with the first version of this plugin was that the plugin was looking for the files in the wrong directory. For other people it was also a problem with my code assuming a Linux filestructure, so on Windows servers it broke. 2.0.0+ shouldn’t have this problem, as I’m using a different method of calling other files.
