    With WordPress 4.1, your plugin seems broken : it doesn’t save the category. Maybe it’s the way the array is made? A new bug of WordPress 4.1? My version of PHP is 5.2.17

    • Martin Beaudin-Lecours says

      Sorry, I forgot to write “with a custom content and custom taxonomy”. A detail! 😉

      My bad, surely. Your plugin works well as is.

      I should have asked “how do you alter the form, or what shortcode to use, for a custom content and custom taxonomy”?

      • Team Editor says

        Hello Martin Beaudin-Lecours, Thanks for your comment and understand that this plugin working well. I’m really sorry to say that there’re no custom shortcode for custom taxonomy. If you want to add anymore option then you should use custom installation support.

        • Martin Beaudin-Lecours says

          Thanks for your answer and your plugin. I found a way to do what I want (with tax_input).

  2. Shan says


    I checked out the doc, its cool to use this Plugin. But i am expecting that, i want to Insert my own Field.

    For eg: Inside the post content box, i want to add Extra inputs from the users.

    Is it possible to give our own text boxes to get more input. Let me know.


    • WPthorp says

      @Shan, You can do it but it’s not easy to do if you’re not clear about code. I didn’t add admin consol to manage all in dashboard. If you want to add extra field then add extra text field and verify it to another file. Or if you let me know details what you want to add then i can help out.

    Is it posible to add a category inside the shortcode?
    I would like to have a single page with one category, and another page with the other category, so people don’t have to sellect the category themselfs.
    Something like: [mag-simple-guest-post redirect=”URL” author=”username” cat=”4″]

    • WPthorp says

      Yes, you can add this shortcode. Thanks!

  4. Henk Verdienen says

    Its a good plugin but it does need some updates. Great job anyway.

    • WPthorp says

      @Henk, Actually we didn’t get free time to update this plugin. We’ve some idea to improve more this plugin and will be added soon. Stay with us… :)

    Integrating a captcha into your plug-in?

    I use Slider Captcha and it generates custom PHP, Java or Short code to insert the captcha into forms.

    Would it be possible for you to add a method of inserting custom code into your plugin form (just before the end form tag) so captcha can be added without editing your plugin?

    • Ataul Ghani says

      Yes, We can use this function for captha. Can you send us code then we can review it.

  6. Sarah says

    Thanks for this plug-in. I have it as a page for guest posts. I entered [mag-simple-guest-post ” author=”username”]. However, if my guest is posting and is not logged in — the username does not come up, so when I view the post to publish, there is no author assigned to the post.

    What I want is for the author’s name and email address to be visible in the post. How do I do that?

    • Ataul Ghani says

      Thanks for your commnet. Author name and email will not come up on post. This option is for asign posted article to someone already there like admin. So if you input author name admin that means that post will be asinged to admin account. I think you have got the point. :)

  7. Horby says

    Plugin is excellent and easy.
    how i can add captcha?

    • Ataul Ghani says

      Thanks! To add captcha there need to add some custom code with this plugin. But Right now it’s safe. I think no need to use captcha because posting is much secure now.
