For what I needed, this plugin was perfect. Simple and compact. I just needed a plugin that allowed guests to post updates about the surrounding area we live in. After trying multiple plugins (that were either too complicated or required more than what I was budgeted for), I came across this gem. The only drawback is that it currently doesn't implement a captcha system, but the author stated that's going to happen in an upcoming release. So if you are looking for a simple, and easy-to-use, front-end guest posting plugin, this is definitely the one to use. The best feature about this though is that the plugin pages use an integrated chat where the actual author of the plugin responds! Amazing.

Love it. Everything about it, including the personal immediate attention of the plugin creator. The flexibility of controls and the power this gives to wordpress will disruptively revolutionize social media everywhere, if wordpress users use this plugin and run with it.

The concept of creating, submitting and editing content from the front-end is working well. The content opened in an editor block for editing using the modern Next-generation block styled editor (EditorJS) with serveral features like text Marker (highlight text), List, inline Code. The editing settings can be activated and deactivated by setting for each forms. Really useful plugin with many implementing areas. Great work!

It looks like there are custom fields in the description. But it says custom domains are included in the paid plan when you install it. If it wasn't for this it would have deserved 5 stars.
