Setting up new user accounts with author permissions can be quite a hassle when you’re trying to encourage guest posts on your blog. A new free plugin called WordPress Guest Post aims to make this process much easier.
After you’ve installed and activated the plugin, the guest post submission page will look something like this:
The plugin will automatically create an “Add Posts” page where the form will appear. You can then request your guest bloggers to submit through that page.
Post submitted through that form will appear among your drafts for approval. You can then edit submissions and make them live.
Adding this plugin will make it much easier for you to receive guests posts on a regular basis and keep pumping fresh content through your blog. Simply review and approve posts – no need to create a bunch of new users and train them on WordPress. Find out more at the WordPress Guest Post Plugin homepage.
