Access Plugin's UI From Frontend (3 posts)

    I have been looking around for a way to access the user interface of a plugin from the frontend of my website.

    Normally, I would post any code and the website, but I really just need a push in the right direction. I have not found any documentation for how to do this specifically.

    I can think of a few convoluted and resource consuming ways to do it, but I'd really like a simply way for users to access a particular plugin from the frontend.

    I want to keep them out of the backend not for security reasons, but it's because I feel they would have a more seamless experience if they never had to go to the backend.

    You're going to have recreate it yourself, if the plugin has a suitable API in which to do so.

    Most UIs are made for the backend so a consistent experience can be made with other plugins and WordPress itself.

    I'm not sure how to do that.

    However, I did try a couple of other things. Each time I got a Catchable Fatal Error for turning it into a string.

    For example, when I tried to create a shortcode for it, I got:

    Catchable fatal error: Object of class Anthologize could not be converted to string in /home/server/mydomain.com/wp-includes/shortcodes.php on line 287
