Surely more than one client has asked you that their editors do not need to enter the WordPress administration area in order to publish .
And if not, it has even occurred to you to offer the opportunity to your visitors of to publish articles as guests without even the need to register.
Or maybe it's that you miss the editor on the cover of Joomla?
Well, whatever your case, and like almost everything in WordPress, it is absolutely possible, in fact it is very easy and we have several options to do it. Let's see a few …
1. Guest editor
Guest editor is a plugin through which you can offer your visitors leave their articles as guests. The best thing is that they do not even have to register. You only need to enable a special page, which you configure in the plugin settings, where you will leave your publications.
The entries will not be published automatically but you must approve them, which seems to me the most appropriate way to allow this type of functionality .
2. Front-end Editor
Front-end editor is another fantastic plugin, but in this case what allows you is not creating new entries but editing existing ones without having to enter the WordPress Desktop.
Do not use the TinyMCE editor but a different visual editor, but also very effective. The only requirement is that you need PHP 5 or higher to make it work. The best thing is that it adapts to any topic, it is indifferent. To edit an entry you just have to double click on it and the editor opens. A joy.
3. One quick post
Compatible with WordPress and BuddyPress, One quick post allows the creation and editing of entries on the cover, without enter the Desktop.
Supports custom entry types and has multiple options, such as file upload and even geolocation. It is as complete as you can find.
4. Quick post widget
The easiest way to offer guest articles on your site is Quick post widget . You install it and it offers you a new widget that you can place where you want and, from this moment, your visitors can send articles without registering. Also, since the last version, you can enable the "inline" editor on a page of your choice, you just have to add the "shortcode"
[quick-post-page] to make it work.
You can configure a lot of options in the widget though the editor itself is pretty simple, but enough for most users.
Well, that's what I found, if you know any more, tell us in the comments.
