I want to setup a simple custom form for users to post, which will automatically:

  • Subscribe user to updates (i.e. moderation approved, comment posted)
  • Enable DISQUS xor IntenseDebate comments
  • Publish to /users-articles/.

The form should look something like this:


Rich-text post (with char-limit):


Submit (goto login/register if unauthed)

Which plugin can I use to create this form?

I'm not familiar with a plugin that is that specific but this answer should point you in the right direction if you're up to some dev work... stackoverflow.com/questions/4321914/wp-insert-post-with-a-form – jackreichert Feb 22 '12 at 4:23

Formidable Pro (formidablepro.com) will allow you to have users create posts to either your wordpress blog or to a custom post types (I am assuming the mentioned users-articles is a custom post type). I think subscription to updates and the enabled comments would need to be done through other plugins though.

Thanks Steve, I emailed Formidable yesterday to see if they can provide the functionality I am looking for. Also, it seems that the Quick Post Widget might solve the issue. – A T Feb 23 '12 at 7:29
