The security risk would require more management and monitoring. You would need a business plan and appropriate plugins to do this. But, if you have a few trusted sources that you’d like to give access to, you can do that by adding them to your site as authors. We have more details on that here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/adding-users/ You’ll want to be sure you understand user roles, too — essentially you’ll only want to make these people authors so they can’t edit other users’ stuff. http://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/ Alternatively, you can have people contribute via email, then you publish and give credit and what not. Let us know if you have more questions on this, or if you had something else in mind. Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
