    hi i have a plugin that uses cpt’s and it lets logged in users add posts from the frontend althought the post types are infact selectable in requirements checklist and i can get it to work just fine when creating the post via the backend when creating the same posts via the frontend the requirement checklists are ignored once clicking submit and publishing the post on the frontend and the post gets published anyhows even if the requiremnts are not met. any ideas?

  • i think this is because the from the frontend the plugin has a submit button to publish your post that is always visible.

    This has less to do with the publish button always being visible on the frontend and more to do with the fact that your frontend editor plugin can’t load any files from my plugin. I will not be adding support for these types of frontend editor plugins, as there are many of them – they all handle information differently and I cannot guarantee they won’t change the way they work later on. It would also require me to load my plugin files on all admin pages and all frontend pages, not to mention writing a different codebase to work with each of these plugins – this goes against my goal for a lightweight plugin.

    I will, however, add support for this if it ever becomes a built-in feature in WordPress. There are talks about adding a frontend editor to core, so perhaps it will happen in the future. But, for now, my plugin will only work when adding content in the traditional way.

    If you must use a particular frontend editor and must have it working with this plugin, I can be reached directly through my website for custom work.

    AH no problems dave, cheers for your response, see the problem i face is this, i have disabled the ability for anyone but myself to even reach wp-admin and login pages and the urls have been changed to display 404 pages if they are typed in by someone, even my register pages are front-end, in other-words the whole of my site is restricted to front-end use.

    The problem i face is that the plugin that lets my users submit content via the front-end is directing to an error page, meaning if a user misses filling in say the ‘title’ and they have spent ages typing and arranging their content in the wysiwyg editor they are taken to a wordpress error page because the plugin uses wp_die if it is blank and sends them there, once they are at the error page saying ‘title is required’ there is no way back unless you hit the browser back button and thus all the users work in the wysiwyg editor has vanished.

    I was hoping i could find a plugin like yours to remedy the problem.

    Which frontend editor plugin are you using? Perhaps I can take a look into making an addon plugin for it to work with mine?

    Sounds like you need some AJAX to test values of fields before the content is actually submtted (or attempted to be submitted). But, without knowing the plugin you use, I can’t guess at a solution.

    its a customized version of a plugin that i bought and have had work done on it so as it stands my version isn’t available to download anywhere, its not really a front end editor as such that lets me make my own cpt’s or taxonomies within it like other front-end editor plugins its more of a plugin that has predefined and already setup cpt’s and taxonomies to serve the purpose of the plugin, all i know really via browsing through the code is that it uses wp_die when a title is not filled in and it uses wp_editor as the wysiwyg editor for adding content via the fron-tend.

    It may be something i have to live with and integrate a warning directly into the edit pages via html into the plugin to notify users not to forget to add a title.

    mcpeanut,

    As your site seems to be one of a kind in this regard, I won’t really be able to help you out. Best thing I can suggest is to go to the developer who customized the site for the frontend capabilities… they should be able to hard-code a warning and prevent publishing with javascript.
