Description of Post Generation add-on of Form Maker WordPress plugin

Do you want to have user-generated content on your site? Do you want to make the process of the user-content-generation structured and easy? Now you can use the Form Maker Post Generation Add-on for creating form-based posts and pages.

Attention: Post Generation Add-On requires Form Maker version 1.7.65/2.7.65 and higher: if you are using an older version, please update your plugin.

General description

Post- Generation add-on allows creating a post, page or custom post based on the submitted data. The form fields can be used for generating the title, the post content, tags, categories and featured images. If necessary the form fields can be accompanied with custom text.

The permission setting allows to choose whether to allow guest-posting or to give that permission only for the logged in users. To avoid spam postings, there is a default option of setting the generated post to draft and publishing it after editor reviewing.
