edit submitted articles

    hi,

    i let logged in user submit articles to my site (using post fields) - everything fine so far, great tool, easy to use.

    is it possible to let the authors/logged in users (still no wp backend users, no wp authors) to edit their articles after submission (like your function to edit already submitted forum posts) or let dem delete their submitted articles if they are outdated for example? i thought about creating a list of their submitted titles with an delete button next to each title which removes the article or sets the article to draft.

    is that possible?
    tnx, eric

  2. There is this 3rd party add-on which claims to allow post editing:

    http://www.p51labs.com/gravity-forms-update-post-plugin-v0-5-1-released/

    This is not a feature of Gravity Forms. You will have to come up with some way to control access to only the posts they have written. Then you might be able to use this plugin to allow the visitor to edit the post.

    tnx for response, i´ll have a look at this plugin.

    btw: on my site i also use s2member for user registration, as a registered free user i give them access to the gravity article submit form. so i know which user created which article... any chance to use this infomation to create a list of their articles and at least give them the option to delete some of their articles?

    tnx, eric

  4. I'm sorry - what information is stored for the user, and how did you want to use that information?
