    Hi there, id like to allow a guest author to write articles. I want to assign the Contributor role so that i can ultimately edit and publish the post.
    How can i allow the contributor role to upload images for their posts?

    Even I am looking for the solution to this problem. I guess there shud be an option to allow certain files (like jpeg gif etc) for contributors. If I have a writer whose job is to submit an article then I would expect a complete article with images. I can't make him an author as it has a risk of article getting published without approval and proof reading.

    Or the other way is if I have an option to restrict authors to publish content.

    Any solution please???

    I want to know about this one too. I have 10 folks that need to be able to post new entries with photos and /or video, etc.

    But, I don't want them to be able to publish the posts without review first.

    Thanks.

  4. Use the Role Manager plugin and give them the "upload_files" capability.

    By the way that plug-in rocks! Thanks to its author.

    One problem remains: now all contributors are allowed to delete images uploaded by others too.
