External submit post page (4 posts)

    I want to build a page where people can submit simple articles / videos / posts / whatevers with a title, body and tags that are treated as if the author was an author (so sent to the Pending Review section).

    I've tried playing around with different plugins including Custom Write Panel, Role Manager, WPLite, Flutter and Clutter Free but none of them do what I want.

    Ideally I want a simple page that only contains four things: Title, body, tags and categories. The user fills it out, hits the submit button and gets a thank you page in return. The admin sees the post appear in the Pending Review section under manage and can edit or publish it later.

    I know this can be done with a bit of custom coding but I was hoping someone has already invented the wheel so I don't have to start from scratch.

    Oh, and if possible it should work without the submitters having to log in first... unsafe and insecure but that's what my friend wants...

    any help will be rewarded with excellent karma.

    One more thing:

    Alternately, is it possible to direct the subscriber users to a different page after login than the admin?

    1. The ability to use the search button before posting... is also rewarded by good karma:

    2. See #1. (hint for keyword: login redirect)
