    Hello Themosaurus team!

    We are using Social Articles to allow front-end publishing for our users but we encounter several limitations:

    • Users can submit simple articles but can’t include inline images and media (except with link)
    • Categories to select don’t appear to have a hierarchy (apparently Social Article kept that functionality for their premium plugin)
    • Only one post format available. So if we want users to submit a video post type, we can’t (or I haven’t found how)

    So we were thinking… is there a way to redirect users to the regular, back-end Gutenberg editing? So they can benefit from all the publishing options (but with some options hidden because of their role).

    or is there a way to enhance Social Article capabilities?

    Thanks a bunch, have a great sunny weekend! ??☀️

    Hi @pilgrimteam,

    Thanks again for creating separated topics for your questions. This is really helpful to keep our forums tidy and create a well-organized knowledge base! 🙂

    Unfortunately, a recent plugin exists to give access to Gutenberg in the front-end but to me, it is not mature enough to be used in production:


    There is also Front-End Editor from Scribu but it doesn’t seem to include the social aspect of Social Articles:

    Front-end Editor

    WP User Frontend seems interesting but its features are overlapping with other plugins already installed on your website as it handles membership and other things:

    WP User Frontend – Membership, Profile, Registration & Post Submission Plugin for WordPress

    Some plugins can make your dashboard accessible but they might require more tinkering to achieve what you’re looking for:


    Display WP Admin Pages in the Frontend – WP Frontend Admin

    Frontend Dashboard

    Finally, you can also use custom code to style your admin like your frontend and let users with limited edition rights access Gutenberg and edit their posts.

    In summary, it is safe to say that you’re better of buying the premium version of Social Articles as it will end up save you more time/money than these other solutions.

    Hey Olivier,

    Thanks a lot for your answer!

    I took a look at all those links, thank you for suggesting so many different options!
    As some of these plugins are very old, and since my coding skills (besides CSS and HTML) aren’t exactly through the roof, I think I’ll consider buying the pro version of Social Articles if the need should arise.

    I’ll keep an eye on that Frontrom plugin though!

    Thx again!

    Great! This is the safest bet. We will also keep an eye on Frontrom, we have big hopes for this plugin. 😉
