I'm looking to create a site with a wide array of user contributed content. I have strong experience in programming, and I'm evaluating Wordpress for the task.
Having created a custom post type, can I allow a broad array of users (not necessarily per-approved or know to me) to create and manage their own instances of that custom post type?
What's the best way to go about this? Is there a front end for that creation, or do they need access to the admin?
Thanks for any help.
