I'm in the process of setting up a site with member interaction and the client would really prefer to keep the members out of the backend. I'm using the modified "user frontend"-plugin to manage posts and profiles in the front-end, and FEE to edit existing posts, but so far, publishing new posts is limited to using a simple form. So I was wondering about the following - I'm adding a "new entry" button to the admin bar, and if that button would not link to the form page, but call a script that would not output anything, but use insert_post with some standard content and then forward to the preview page of the just created post, wouldn't the FEE be able to edit it?
To the editor, it seems this would be regular editing, but to the user it would look like editing a new post.
Is my assumption correct? Would this work?
Thanks for a brief tip before I start coding it :)
