I want anyone to be able to view all the posts on my site.
I want however to be able to have a page where those who would like to become contributors (contributing articles/posts) and just fill in the title, content and choose the category.
I don't want them going in to the back end and seeing the dashboard and all of that.
I do want them to sign up to be a contributor, choose a user name and password and then be able to sign in with that username and password which would take them and them alone to a page where they would have the ability to enter Title, Content, and content.
I would like to be able to get their email as well so I could automatically or manually send a response when they sign up or submit content.
I hope you understand what I am looking to do. I am sure it is possible but do not know what plugins etc to use to accomplish this.
