The plugin disappears from my blog page, when ever i decide to use the blog template as standard and not masonry. Pls i would appreciate a speedy response ASAP.

Ignore the troll, this plugin is VERY secure (and awesome)!

I've been using your plugin for years now and haven't paid a dime for it. After reading that last trollish review, I had to take a moment to share my experience with anyone who may be reading and wondering about this plugin.

User Submitted Posts does exactly what it says and has only gotten better over the years. Anyone paying attention knows that Jeff works tirelessly to provide premium-grade support for his free plugins, and USP is no exception. It's a top-notch plugin that's always been very secure.

Anyone who understands how WordPress works knows that any user with proper permissions can access and modify content and files. It doesn't matter if it's backend or frontend. Contrary to wild claims made in the previous review, there is no security risk with USP, because it allows only what WordPress allows, nothing more, nothing less.

In short, User Submitted Posts is awesome and VERY secure. Use with confidence.

Thank you, Jeff, for your continued development and support of the USP plugin.


Serious Security Issues
By , for WP 4.5.2

****** Warning Serious Security Issue*******This plugin gives users full access to your entire media Library whereby a malicious user can not only view every image or document in your media library, but they are also able to alter and delete any amount of your content data.

I tried to speak to the plugin author regarding this issue and if there was any other way of disabling this level of access, so that each user could only view content that they themselves had uploaded, similar to other front-end publishing plugins that I have used.

I received only a dismissive and unconcerned response from the Plugin Author.

*****My advice would be to avoid this plugin.*******

The best plugin for guest posts!
By , for WP 4.5.1

I want readers to be able to submit text and images to my blog without the need for registration or access to the site backend. Having tried several plugins that do this, I've settled on USP as the best. It's simple to set up, easy to customize, and works well. The author Jeff also provides excellent support through the plugin forum.

Highly recommended!

Perfect plugin for what I was trying to do!!!
