    Hi. Can I create new post directly from site using this tool? If no, when this option will be available? Thanks.

    Yes. Simply click "New post" on the front-end (*not* the back-end). let me know if it doesn't work.

    It works but I want to create direct link without using this bar. Can I do that?

    I disabled this bar so users can't see "New post" button. I want to create link that will be placed on site (in header). When users will click on that link they will create new posts. Can I do that?

    Not at the moment, but I'll add that in the future.

    I'll second this request.

    It would be great to have a direct link that I can give to my contributors to add a new post through the front-end, without giving them links to the rest of the backend. (by disabling the bar as mentioned above).

    Funny, it "looks" like the 'new post' link on the bar is going to the regular backend url for a new post - but it's obviously not. Interesting... :)

    Looks like we would need to be able to disable the 'edit in admin' link on the new/edit post too, to keep users off the backend...

    The behaviour of that button is changed with JavaScript, that's why it still has the original link.

    Buttons in the admin bar can be removed/added by hooking into the admin bar.

    If a user is logged in they can use:

    <a href="http://your-domain.com/wp-admin/post-new.php">New Post</a>

    That's a link to the regular wordpress editor.

    What we are requesting is a way to have a link, something we can put in the sidebar, for example, that opens the Front End Editor in editing mode.

    Gotcha!

    The best option I have found is to use another plugin to create posts. Really simple with current support.
