Guest Blogger

I am trying to set up a level and a free subscription so that someone can submit guest blog posts. First off my ability to set the default user role (ie to contributor so that their submissions can be reviewed) seems to have disappeared from my general settings menu. Second I set up the level and gave them access to the "Post" and "Add New" Menus and sub menus but they still don't get access when I log in as a test. It looks as though the plugin is in effect not working because their default role is set to 'subscriber'.
So do I have to manually go in and change their role after they've subscribed? That would seem to defeat the purpose of having all of this sophistocation :slight_frown:
