Can I have a guest gallery

    I am very new to the concept of blgging it is goiong well so far, I would appreciate if anyone can tell me if it is possible to create a guest gallery where people can come into my blog and post any topic or write on any topic. I do not mean people commenting on my topics. Rather people can post their own topics under specific criteria.



    Only method with what we have here would be to have them create their own WordPress Account without their own blog (ie The username only method) and then for you to add them into your User List.

    What you’re thinking of is not really a blog but a CMS like PHPNuke where outsiders submit “articles” and an admin approves them.


    Thanks for the suggestion, one more question if anyone can help my blog has a regular hit of around 200 to 250 but how can I popularize this any suggestion from our friendly forumn will be really appreciated. Thanks once again for the earlier suggestion.



    I did an article here on the subject.

    You also need to work on your Category tags. For example, this post I would add in “Indian Politics” at the very least. While the subject of your blog is Indian Politics, the Tag System isn’t seeing that nor is any of the Ping services. They look for subject tags.

    Hope this helps,



    What I have done on my blog is to create a guest writers page and to have an email address posted in contact information in the sidebar that submissions can be sent to. I have a notice on my blog in the sidebar too. Thus far I’ve had 5 submissions by email that I have posted. My blog is only 3 months old so I think that’s pretty good. Although I know this is not exactly what you’re looking for perhaps it would work for you too.

    P.S. I usually remove the guest writer’s submissions I post on the guest writers page after a week.



    You can set up a forum like maybe at ProBoards and then post the link on your sidebar. With ProBoards, anyone can start topics if you set it up that way.
