How to add a blog post form to a page

    I’m pretty new to BuddyPress, so please be kind :)

    I am developing: http://www.elonscloset.com using BP 1.2.5.2

    I have disabled access to the Dashboard for all members except admins, but want all logged in users to be able to create a blog post (in addition to their activity posts), as I will be soliciting articles, etc. from them.

    I have created a page to display the posts (Articles).

    Here’s the question: how do I create a page where they can add and/or edit them, without giving them access to the Dashboard?

    Thanks in advance!

    Maybe yo can try the Ucan post plugin http://cartpauj.com/projects/ucan-post-plugin/ . I’m not a hardcore buddypress user so I can’t help you with a BP only solution.

    there are several plugins you can find on wordpress.org plugins for frontend posting, there is even a buddypress frontend posting plugin around here somewhere.

    you could also use http://gravityforms.com which is the premium route.

    or you could do it yourself http://wpshout.com/wordpress-submit-posts-from-frontend/

    ah and there is the option where you can leave access to the dashboard and just css the heck out of it to make it look like the frontend.

    I like both the gravity forms and dashboard theming options.

    Thank you both so much!! I’m not sure why I couldn’t find a plugin – must have been using the wrong keywords. Chalk that up to newbie who doesn’t have all the terminology down yet!

    I looked at all options, and decided to go with the ucan plugin. It installed and worked seamlessly!

    All is well, and we move on to learn new tricks :)
