Meta Box Frontend Submission
Create editorial forms so users can submit blog posts on the front end.
Meta Box Frontend Submission is a Meta Box extension that lets developers create custom forms so users can submit posts on the front end of a website.
The extension supports both traditional post fields and custom fields, and you can also embed forms anywhere on your site using shortcodes — with no extra coding required.
Front-End Forms for WordPress Made Easy
No matter if you’re the website owner or if you’re the user submitting content: everyone gets to breathe a little easier with Meta Box Frontend Submission.
When you have multiple people submitting content to a website, managing editor accounts, and user permissions can be a huge hassle. Having custom details and posts submitted from the front end is a quicker and cleaner solution.
When users contribute their content via a front-end form, the submission can be reviewed from a single location before publication similar to how comments work in WordPress core.
Your contributors’ post submissions will be neatly organized for fast and fearless publication in a way that even the most finicky stickler can appreciate.
It’s all the magic with no wand needed.
Skip the Set-Up
Before Meta Box Frontend Submission, you would have to use extensive custom code to display the form on the front end, and manually control how and where it saves vast amounts of variable data.
Now, who has time for that?
With Meta Box Frontend Submission, everything is handled: no extra redirection code.
Just insert the shortcode to add the form and let the extension do the rest.
You can use Meta Box Frontend Submission to create a flawless, user-generated content system. You’ll be able to relax while details, data and documents roll right in from the front end of your site.
There are endless ways you can customize your forms to collect all the details you need with a light amount of effort.
Below are just a few ways you can use MB Frontend Submission to get organized without missing a beat.
