Simple Button, Users Can create a post (3 posts)

    I'm creating a WP page and I'd like users, who are logged in, to have a simple "post new" button and a simple screen to create a post. I hide their access to the admin page now to keep things simple. I don't want them to go to the existing "add new post " option that is standard with WP. It's too many options. Simplify, Simplify.

    Is there something like this already ? Is there a plug in to do this ?

    Your help would be appreciated !!

    You will probably want to use a custom post type http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/register_post_type (it is in the back end, but you can simplify it) and then set custom capabilities on it and grant those to subscribers http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/add_cap

    You can also search for a custom post type plugin and maybe combine that with a custom role editor plugin.

    I strongly advise against giving folks not known to you personally and well trusted by you to add content to your site without full review and moderation.
