Installation & Usage

Overview

Upload the /user-submitted-posts/ directory to your plugins folder and activateGo to the “User Submitted Posts” Settings Page and customize your optionsDisplay the submission form on your page(s) using template tag or shortcode

Displaying the submission form

To display the form on a post or page, use the shortcode: [user-submitted-posts]

To display the form anywhere in your theme, use the template tag:
<?php if (function_exists('user_submitted_posts')) user_submitted_posts(); ?>

Customizing the submission form

To style the submission form, use the included CSS file located at: /resources/usp.cssTo add custom JavaScript, use the included JS file located at: /resources/usp.js

Customizing user-submitted posts

User-submitted posts are just like any other post, with the exception that they each contain a set of custom fields. The custom fields include extra information about the post:

is_submission – indicates that the post is in fact user-submitteduser_submit_image – the URL of the submitted image (one custom field per image)user_submit_ip – the IP address of the submitted-post authoruser_submit_name – the name of the submitted-post authoruser_submit_url – the submitted URL

So when user-submitted posts are displayed on your website, say on the home page or single-view, these custom fields are available to you in your theme files. This enables you to customize the user-submitted posts by displaying the submitted name, URL, images, and so forth. Here are two articles for those new to using WordPress custom-fields:
