    I tried it, the idea seems good (I have yet to look at the code), my judgment is more than good.
    However, we assume that you wrote ...
    ...It can be a huge time saver if you have a very popular blog or article directory. |

    Well then my advice is to improve first [fep_article_list] using a 'pagination for the items (some of my authors have more than 1,000)

    another small problem:
    if a member is not writing access: [fep_submission_form]
    receive this error:

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent in /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/wordpress/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 876

    A, I forgot, it would be ideal also select the sub-category, in addition to one category.
    thanks anyway, let me know if you can fix these problems,

    are available to further test

    my hasty solution for the category would be to replace:

    ...but still would get a nice long list
    it takes a box? ...

    Allow me to introduce you some other feature suggestions, in addition to pagination and category checkbox ;)

    - If Category checkbox, allow admin to set a min and max categories to check.
    - Allow admin to remove Tag field, in order to prevent users to create thousand and thousand tags.
    - Allow translations via po/mo files (I can send you french translation)
    - Rather than create an author bio via Custom field: create a front-end page for profiles where users can update their profile fields, including the Author Bio for instance, but also their social networks?
    - Add an anti-spam field and/or a honeypot field (hidden field to fight against spams).
    - Link the form to Comment Blacklist of WordPress (in options-discussions.php), to prevent from trolls, racist posts, etc...

    It's a very very nice plugin! WordPress need an efficient front-end publishing plugin.

    I'm glad you like the plugin. I will try to include all these features in the upcoming versions.

    I didn't include a frontend page for profiles because there are already some very good plugins out there that take care of the profile and login page (Theme My Login for instance).

    I could've used the default wordpress bio instead of adding a custom field below the form but many guest bloggers want to submit a new bio with each article, usually for SEO purposes.

    Right now the plugin uses nonces for security. I know it's not foolproof so I may add a captcha or honeypot to the form.

    Thanks a lot for taking the time to share your ideas.
