Reviews

Contributor user level shows WordPress menu

Hi, I am using Social Articles that comes with Kleo theme. If we keep the default user as Subscriber, Social Articles option will not show in the users profile. Once we change the user profile to Contributor the Social Articles options shows in the profile but along with that WordPress admin menu bar also shows. What to do to hide the admin menu bar?

Promising Plugin

I see this plugin is really promising. I would suggest additional features such as:

1. Decline status for post
2. Post decline notification
3. Inline media uploader

however, the basic plugin is great

Excellent, simple and crucial!

An awesome, simple to manage and setup addon for BuddyPress that is crucial in order to boost social features! Bravo, thanks and can’t wait for you guys to release the premium version. Bravo!

Simple

Nice plugin giving users an easy way to write articles. Great work by the author!
