Posting on WordPress From the Front End

We’ve had an ongoing series of posts related to posting from the front end on WordPress. Even expanding on that to include editing and deleting. Those were very popular posts, and helped a lot of people. I wanted to guide people to an exciting series of tutorials that is ongoing on WPTuts+ right now. Check out this series for some new information and tutorials for your front end posting needs. I haven’t had much time lately to work on that series, but I think you will find plenty of information in that tutorial to improve your code, and to learn from!

Let me know what you think of that tutorial? Does it work for you?

Gravity Forms is Working Towards Full WP Editor

I’ve made a couple of posts over the past while about Gravity Forms. Specifically with regards to their user registration module. This module has saved me tonnes of spam, plus it just makes my sites look a little more polished and professional in my opinion. It’s nice to have a site branded registration process. Well, recently Gravity Forms released an update, and while this update didn’t do anything major for me, the release notes spelled out a very cool roadmap for the near future, let’s discuss!

Reader Request – Use Category Slug Based Images for Posts

One of our VoodooPress readers had a question recently. Seems they were using the front end posting form we started talking about here. They became concerned that allowing users to upload new images for every post using this technique would soon fill their hosting allotment. That’s a valid concern. Let’s look at one possible technique here.

Edit and Delete posts from front end with no plugin

This is a continuous tutorial to the “post from your front end” tutorial by voodoo. I will break the tutorial to two parts to make it easier. First part will be creating “my-posts.php” template file. This file displays a list of posts (approved and pending) of a user when he is logged in when each post will have “Edit” and “Delete” buttons. Clicking on “delete” button of a post will instantly delete it. Clicking on “Edit” will send the user to “edit-post.php” file that we will create in the second part of this tutorial.

Full Front End Editor in WordPress 3.3

Here’s a link to an article I think several of us are going to want to look at. The forthcoming WordPress 3.3 release is going to make it quite easy to add the full editor on the front end. We have a very active discussion going on VoodooPress where we’ve established how to post from the front end. I’m not going to have time to work on this for a bit, but wanted to point out the links. Hopefully someone can get this going. It looks like it will be pretty simple for us to get a full editor on our front end posting. If someone works this out, let us know in the comments. Maybe make a full post on your site and link it here, or you can write a guest post on VoodooPress about it.
