I use the custom field plugin http://www.advancedcustomfields.com

Is it possible to create and edit custom posts via the front end? I'd need to be able to see all the custom fields and allow those to be edited as well. Users should only be allowed to edit their own posts if they are logged in.

if you've understood how it works, you will get able to add all fields (or even filtered fields). you can retrieve all custom fields related to a post using the following function:


you will get an array of fields which you can iterate over to create form fields in the metabox.

i've given you some hints which you can use as guide to implement yourself. i'm sorry as it is not possible to provide complete solution
