    Hi!
    1) I have been able to create a front end submission dashboard with non-custom posts.

    2) I have been a create a front end submission form for custom posts.

    3) I have not been able to create a front end submission dashboard that will list the custom posts.
    I couldn't find documentation for the [mb_frontend_dashboard] shortcode that explains how to use it with custom posts.

    Thanks, James

    Hi Patrick,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    The frontend dashboard allows the users to edit their posts on the frontend. If you do not want to allow editing posts for some specific users, please don't give them access to this page. This plugin might help you to do that https://wordpress.org/plugins/restrict-user-access/.

    That's not the issue, Long.

    We're using PublishPress permissions to set custom capabilities for CPTs for custom user roles. So we have a role called Speaker who can edit a Speaker post that is assigned to them (they are the author) but they don't have permission to create a new Speaker post or to delete any post.

    These permissions are recognised and obeyed by WordPress. So in the backend admin screen, for example, they don't see the Add New option for Speaker posts and they don't have an option to delete their assigned post.

    However, your frontend dashboard has an 'Add new' button and a 'delete' action. Both of these allow the user to bypass these permissions and create new posts or delete their assigned posts.
