Plugin / BP Site Post




Providing a front end post solution for a BuddyPress social network is not simply a case of enabling a front-end editor. There are other considerations such as removing access to the WP back-end if that’s required. This plugin aims to help with both of these tasks by providing an editor that is closely integrated with BuddyPress and also providing options to better customize the overall look and feel of the users access to the site. So for example to can hide key elements of the WordPress Tool-bar, you can also disable any WordPress edit links that would traditionally go to the back-end. You can also deny users access to the backend altogether by redirecting to such requests to the home page.

This plugin is a fork of DJD Site Post, it’s been updated in order to work with BP Post Status to deliver a front end editing experience which offers site admin a great degree of control over the user editing experience. A large number of features can be customized. It supports Group. Members Only, Friends Only and Follow post statuses and you can choose to only allow pending submissions or to allow users to to publish immediately.

Some of the features include:

  • Front end posting from a page with the shortcode loaded [bp-site-post];
  • Front End editing of posts – the plugin has options to replace the WordPress edit links with links pointing to the Site Post editor.
  • Supports BP Post Status post statuses – Group, Members, Friends and Follow posts.
  • Various elements of the post structure are optional.
  • Where applicable, certain aspects of the post can be enforced, for example you can enforce unique post titles across the site.
  • Allows guest publishing without a login.
  • Posts can be from all site members or just those with edit_posts capability.
  • Post Format, Categories and tags can be selected.
  • Media upload for image insertion plus other related third party plugins for all site members, not just thse with ‘upload_files’ capability.
  • Post categories can be restricted to a subset of the full category list.
  • The first inserted image in the post can be automatically set as the featured image.
  • Post structure is customizable and enforceable.
  • Post widget with the same features as the shortcode.
  • Hide the WP Toolbar, or just the New Content and Edit menu items
  • Replace WP Edit Post link with links to the Site Post editor.
  • Supports Shortcodes Ultimate button for more front end posting options (media upload capability required).
  • Provides My Posts page listing the authors posts for visitors to the profile, if the author views the profile, draft posts will be displayed with additional post information.
  • Provides a Pending Posts page for users to view and edit their submitted posts.
  • Provides a Moderation page to users who can edit others posts – Editors.

After installing and activating the plugin you will need to add the [bp-site-post] shortcode to the page that will host the editor. This adds a responsive form to the front end.

Please note: This plugin is not compatible with Gutenberg edited posts; Though it’s possible to completely separate front end edited posts from those created in the back end.

Note that whilst it will work standalone it has been designed to work best with BP Post Status. It also needs BuddyPress.
