Great plug-in

It is very nice and I am so happy with it.
However, I have one question^^ Do you have some plan about ‘Media upload form’ I include by update? because my member can not upload image. only featured one…

Sweet Plugin

Just what I needed to give my buddypress visitors the ability to create on the site…great job Miguel for being part of the magic!

Very Good Plugin

There are more plugins that let member published post in front end, but this has 2 important things:
Integration with buddypress (so user can access to edit and create post from USER PERFIL PAGE)
Notification in admin bar, inclusing notification when friends publish posts.
BuddyPress administrato can’t ask for more…
I want to give you 6 stars, but there are only 5… 😉
Thanks very very very much for your work.
You deserve a donation.

Don’t do it! You have so much to live for!

This plugin is built with bad practices that override your site’s CSS, making it impossible to integrate gracefully. If you have anything other than a white or pale background you’re screwed.

it also includes a huge bar across the top just to say whether the article is new or published, which wastes screen space. Surely they could have put a status box next to the title field or another similar elegant solution; but they half assed it instead.

Functionally it does as advertised on the tin; but be careful. It allows users to put any – and I mean any – HTML and other code into your WordPress database, making it not so much a publishing tool as a free pass for hacking. It’s like taking a coked up stripper home for your parent’s anniversary; on the one hand there are features you want to show off. but on the other there’s just too much that can go wrong.

Finally, there are 18 tickets submitted in the past 2 months and only 11 have been dealt with as of this writing. That glacial support doesn’t exactly make one brim with confidence. There’s no brimming here whatsoever. Seething, mostly.

Long story short, sometimes you come across helpful plugins that add rich features to your site. Other times you get ones that make you back away slowly. Run screaming from this one.
