Memory-eater, but works
By , for WP 3.8.1

Good plugin since it works and have easy configuration / usage. If you all have the problem with memory usage, remember to point the URL where the form is located in Options > Targeted Loading. Otherwise scripts and style will be loaded on entire site.

Doesn't work
By , for WP 3.8.1

When you upload an image, it doesn't show in the post. You have to add code into your theme. Huh? What's the point of a plugin if I have to go messing around with code? Added the code and it STILL doesn't work, just shows a link to the uploaded image.

Ok so I won't use that option, I'll instead just let people submit links. Well, the links don't show up in the article, either.

The visual editor doesn't work, only text.

This plugin should be amazing, and it's really really not. Wasted two hours trying to figure it out and am now giving up.

Shame as had potential

I've been using Community News before this but was looking for a plugin that did the same yet added to categories as Community News doesn't. Therefore none of the posts can be SEO'd or used with Jetpack pubicize.

On the face of it this had loads of potential but failed in these areas:

1: Image doesn't upload

2: no way to capture email address

3: Styling is questionable

Without those features, it's up there with a chocolate fire guard and nigh on useless. If those were included, I would pay for it. The redirect is great, the category posting is great. However, it doesn't work as it should.

Shame as it could be blinding and tick a load of boxes.

good work

Thanks for this plugin. Do you work on a pro plugin? Wouldbe great to have more options of custom fields.

Very useful and comprehensive.
It will be also nice if the user submitting the post could select a drop down to show their name or remains anonymous.

Great plugin and is working great !!!

Excellent plugin. Contributors don't have to register and I have a complete control over their posts. Can assign my own categories and tags and everything. Love it! Thanks.

Does not work

Some posts go directly to the trash folder and after this the user-submitted images and custom fields are lost. It seems that others had the same problem according to the support threads but unfortunately it was not possible to get any useful advice here how to solve it. I changed to another plugin (as suggested by the plugin author too!) and am really happy with it ...
