[resolved] safety? (6 posts)

    Hi, yes, it was very easy to get working. But now how do I make it safe? For example:

    - captcha or security question such as "what color is snow?"

    - the submissions should be drafts, not published posts. If the user registers and logs in, THEN the publication should be automatic.

    - would like to be able to choose categories

    - I would like to receive an email for each non-registered submission

    Thanks.

    The posts doesn't get automatically published, it goes to pending list.

    All other features are in the pool.

    Okay, I see what you mean. Thanks for responding quickly.

    I would like an email to go out to the administrator, saying that a guest submission has been received.

    Can you help me make this change?

    Name, email and (optionally) website are captured in the form. How do I make them show up in the posts page?

    Thanks.

    Name, email and (optionally) website are captured as custom fields. You will have to tweak your theme to show these info on the frontend.

    Let me check about the email thing.

    Tweak theme -- I don't mind digging in, but can you give me a starting point, please? Thank you!
