Hi, I noticed that when I visit a frontend form (and post lists) the html loads first and then the css. This gives an unpleasant sensation that the page is being built right in front of you. After checking the page source, I noticed that both the css and js are located in the footer. I don’t know if this is a natural behavior of the plugin or some incompatibility with other plugin.


Thanks! The resources being registered at init is a specific behavior of your plugin, or a standard behaviour of wordpress?

I think it is a matter of choice but you can see examples of this in the WP core as well.


How can I schedule post date through front end editor? I’ve seen your demo has a date picker on it, but I don’t see that option when building a form.

Hi. The datepicker element is available for custom fields. All you need to do is create a new custom field and select datetime picker from the element type dropdown. Unfortunately scheduling is not available at the moment.

Hi. Any updates on the integration with script?

We integrated with chosen ages ago :)

But recently we switched to Select2 since Chosen didn’t allow addition of new items.

use el demo de esta pagina

y no muestra el campo Gallery por que ?

Sorry I don’t understand what you are trying to say. I tried using Google translate but that didn’t help much.


How to add or showing third party plugin icon in fronted publishing pro like in editor backend WP, because on the fronted publishing pro can not showing.

ex: Syntax Highlighter icon in the menu editor fronted publishing pro.

Please help. Thank you.

Hi. It depends on the third-party plugin. If they have chosen to hide the button on the frontend then it won’t appear in the form.

how to allow permission for showing the button. because i need this feature.

like this

Hi, i really want buy this plugin… But i have question for you… I need create frontend form:

1. Form with title “Tutorial” and with category “Tutorial” only not other.
2. Form with title “Blog” and showing all category except “Tutorial” category.

My question, how about “Post List”, are can showing “Tutorial” category only not include other category?? Or showing all category except “Tutorial” category. Thankyou… :)


1. Yes, you can create a form with only one category

2. Yes, you can create a form with all categories except for one

3. No, post list will show all posts

I hope you can create post list like what i want on next update, so i can buy it…

Hi, i’ve got a pre-purchase question. Can I set a limit of post that one user can post? I mean, I would like to set that a user can just post maximun of 5 posts per hour. Is it avaible? Is it going to be? I just need that feature :S

I read one of your replies 7 months ago, is it going to take so long?

It shouldn’t :)

In the past few months literally dozens of new features and bug fixes have been introduced. I just never got to stuff like posting limits because there was more important items on the list. But now that most of that is out of the way, I can develop this. Unfortunately I can’t give you an exact date.

Thank You! Going to buy it ;)


Presale questions.

I would like to know 2 things :

1. If we can create different user’s role, 1 per custom post type. A user role could only post on one type of custom post. Could we do that ?

2. If for one custom post type (one role) we could define several pay plans ? For exemple one Basic and one Premium, the Premium one to make feature posts. Possible ?

Excuse me for my bad english. Du you speak french ?


Hello. Unfortunately I don’t speak french.

1. Forms created with this plugin only create posts of a single post type. So you will have to create a form for each post type.

If you want certain users to not be able to post content of a post type, you will have to hide the form of that post type with the help of a content hiding plugin.

2. You can set a different price for each user role. But, on making the payment, the post will get published. There is no way to set it to featured right now.

Please let me know if you want me to clarify further. Thanks


Hopefully a quick pre-sale question:

When using this and the custom fields, could I enter the meta key for an ACF custom field and that be the item that gets saved/updated from the front end?

I guess a simpler way of saying this is, does this easily integrate with Advanced Custom Fields?

Thanks in advance

Hi. Yes you could enter the meta_key of a custom field from ACF and the two plugins would work perfectly together.

Awesome! Thanks for the quick reply :)

Hi. I need an ability to display the user submitted form right after it has been filled. The form needs to be displayed on the same place on the front end of the website where it was submitted. Is this possible?

Sorry I don’t understand the question. Please provide an example.

There is a user profile page which contains different types of profile tabs. One of the tabs contains a front end submission form that user can fill. After the user has filled in the form and submitted it, the submitted post is displayed in the same profile tab where the form is. At this point, other users will see the submitted form, but only the owner of the profile can edit the form.

Unfortunately such a feature is not available at the moment.

have a bug, button “add media” not working.. pls help

Hi, I’m interested in you plugin but is there a way to put html into label? because I would like to add tooltips on right of each label. Thanks for your help

Error tooltips are already integrated into the form. On the demo if you leave all the fields empty and try to submit, you should see an error tooltip against the title field.

Hi, I’m not able to upload any files. The Media Interface is showing up and I can choose existing files, but can’t upload new one. I get the following js error: File.lastModifiedDate is deprecated. Use File.lastModified instead. plupload.full.min.js:13:29994 I tried to disable validation and tool tips but nothing changes.

Hi. On the latest version of WP and Frontend Publishing Pro I am not seeing any such error. Try disabling your other plugins and switching to the default theme to isolate the issue. If that doesn’t help please send me your site’s URL and login details so I can help you fix this.

I had already switched to the default theme but it was WP Media Folder which interfered with your add on. I had disabled WP Media Folder for front page uploads to avoid problems. Funny fact: Enabling it was resolved the error. Now everything is working fine. Thanks for your efforts.

That’s weird but glad you got it working.

Hello? I have bought it; but i ma unable to download your item… see : This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it.

Hi. Did you encounter this on CodeCanyon? If yes then you might want to tell Envato about it.

Hello, could download your plugin. but odes not work. after creating a form, I wanted to test it and I have got this message : Security token expired. Please try reloading the page. again and agian; i connot post… can you help ?

yes the body is visible but is is empty.there is no text inside.

Please send me your site’s URL and login details so I can take a look.

OK just sent a message on the support box with details . thanks in advance.

Hi again.

I really hate to ask again, but what changes have been made in this latest update? Last time I asked you pointed me to and said I can always look there for the current update information. That was great and thanks for that. But this time I go there and nothing has been added for Version: 3.7.0.

I really need to know what changes are made before I update because I am working with many plugins so potential issues I need to be able to quickly troubleshoot and using changelogs and other update information helps that process. Thanks

Hi. I was waiting for the new version to get approved. It was approved last night so I didn’t get a chance to update the logs. I will do that now.

Sorry about the inconvenience.

Thanks for that.

Hi I don’t see where to set PayPal payments up?

Thank you, but at the same time your product listing is deceiving because no where does it state that these features are extra plugins. It gives the assumption or impression that the product is wholly intact at the point of purchase. I hope these additional files are safe. My biggest concern is that there has been no codecanyon audit to ensure that it is safe. My hope is for the best, and that in the future your solution will be better. Thank you.

They are perfectly safe. Some functionality has been split into separate addons because only some people need it.

If you are not satisfied and you think I have some nefarious purpose behind the creation of these addons please find some other plugin and initiate a refund request. I’d also like to remind you that there are thousands of independent sellers out there that offer free and premium plugins from their own websites. Not everything is sold on CodeCanyon.

My apologizes, my style of writing did not come across the way that I had initially intended it. You have been very helpful in the past and I will continue down the road with you. Please note that, if in fact I was looking for a free ride, I would not be a member of codecanyon, there is a reason why I am here, and why I continue to buy from various authors. Kind regards.

How to display the extra fields in the front end of the post

Because in the example that have the demo you have the field Extra Rich Text And is not visible when you publish it

I want to buy your plugin but I want to know how to show the extra fields

In the latest version you simply tell the plugin which fields you want to be displayed under the post content and those fields are displayed automatically. The version on the demo site is a bit dated. I haven’t had a chance to update it.

Validation , required, min / max all seem to be ignored when trying to add new items to form?

You must be logged in as admin. By default validation is disabled for admins. There is a setting for this in the form settings.

I see. Great thank you. What about adding placeholder text instead of labels. Also, can we disable scroll wheel for date picker?

These things are not possible currently. Also, I’ve noticed that you don’t currently have support for the plugin. I’d really appreciate it if you could renew your support package.

Hi, I installed the new version but I’m not seeing the custom fields on the admin edit screen. Do I need to activate in the settings for this feature to work?

Hi. Yes you will have to change the settings. In the form fields tab, each field has a setting called “Automatically Display”. Make sure “Admin area edit page” is selected for every field that you would like to display on the edit screen.

Thank you!
