  1. Really like the idea of User Submitted posts.
    Is there a chance to make it look like Divi form ?

  2. Great article! My site is set up to eventually collate lots of stories and blog posts from other users, mainly medical professionals but also patients. I want to be able to share experiences and opinions as well as high quality evidence based pieces.

    I’ve been toying with different ways to allow this to happen, so far I’m accepting emails and contacts via forms, URL to copy+paste of their own blog, but it just seems inefficient and unprofessional in a way.

    I’ve been looking for a plugin for it and the one you mention (usersubmittedposts) may just be it so thank you!

  3. Love the idea of allowing the visitor submit drafts directly into WordPress. Though I haven’t accepted any user generated content on my blog but the idea is a good one as it allows one never run out of blog post to publish on site. Thanks for sharing, and particularly the third option.

    • You are very welcome Emmanuel, glad you found it useful 🙂

  4. Hello, for what reasons i need to allow users to submit articles?

    • That is explained in the article under the heading “Why Accepting User-Submitted Articles Is a Smart Idea” – thank you for your comment Iamia 🙂

  5. Totally agree that user created content is a god send but can also be a hindrance too. I utilise a WP theme that has this natively integrated. My only issue is the standard of posts people like to share, hence why I now place them as pending, but content is key and if users can do it for you, then your on your way to winning. BTW Great Artlicle

    • Good points, glad you liked the article 🙂
