I’ve been thinking a lot lately about making WordPress post from front end. Solutions exist, in terms of plugins and specialized themes, but neither fit the bill and there are times when they just aren’t all that flexible. However there’s always the possibility of a custom built WordPress front-end posting plugin that can be adjusted to fit an exact need.
In this article, we’ll look at the reasons why you’ll need WordPress post from front end, using the WordPress API to insert posts and finally putting it all together in the form of an easy to modify WordPress front end posting plugin.
Reasons WordPress Post From Front End
WordPress is getting more and more used as a framework (or application platform) and for good reasons. It’s really well documented, “there’s a plugin for that” phrase is as true as it’s gonna get and you can find really good developers at good prices.
All these combined encourage people to build, build, build:
- community websites
- Q&A sites
- photo sharing portals
