    Hi,
    I saw in previous topics that some users need to let their users post from their profile page. I myself needed such a thing and tried many ways to find a solution.
    Now I have found a perfect way and want to share it with others.
    first you need to install these tow plugins:
    Ultimate Member Profile Tabs
    WP User Frontend
    the first plugin creates a profile tab for ultimate member and you can add anything to it for example any kind of shortcode.
    you must create two tabs for ultimate member:
    name one of them add new post and the other edit posts
    now go to user frontend and add a new post form. you can customize every option and the results will appear on frontend. and then save it. now copy the post form shortcode to profile tab that you created add new post and save it.
    now your users can post from their profile page.
    for activating the edit option, first you must add a new page and put this shortcode [wpuf_edit] on it and save it.
    now go to ultimate member profile tab and put this shortcode [wpuf_dashboard] to the edit posts tab. you can customize options as well.
    nowt go to user frontend settings and activate the options that lets users edit and delete their posts and also don’t forget to select edit post page which you put the edit shortcode on it.
    now everything should be ok.
    for changing the profile tab icons go to ultimate member add new post tab and put this code um-faicon-pencil-square-o in the icon field.
    now for changing edit post tab icon go to ultimate member edit posts tab and put this code um-faicon-pencil-square in the icon field.
    I hope this method helps you.
    you can see the result on my website:
    submission stories
    you can even make a new profile tab for private messaging between users and install the Front End PM plugin and add private messaging on your profile tab. for this you must copy the frontend pm shortcode to the ultimate member profile tab.
