    I only want the user to be able to edit and update the form on the front end - no need to see the actual post - is there a way to hide the Title column and the posts - but leave the date and edit buttons etc

    Hi Paul,

    You can use the attribute columns to remove the column title from the frontend dashboard. For example

    [mb_frontend_dashboard edit_page="6" columns="date,status"]
    

    Read more on the documentation https://docs.metabox.io/extensions/mb-frontend-submission/#user-posts-dashboard

    If you are not familiar with coding, you can use a third-party plugin to limit posts per user.

    Thank you - I have sorted the issues above - I'm having trouble with the redirect - I have seen the code below - but not sure if I need to change anything to get it to work and also where I implement it - I have tried adding the code using a code snippets plugin to run everywhere - but it didn't seem to work.

    Also - is it possible to alter the text Howdie on the title - would like to say "Welcome" instead

    add_filter( 'rwmb_frontend_redirect', function( $redirect, $config ) {
        // Make sure you work on the correct form.
        if ( 'my-id' !== $config['id'] ) {
            return $redirect;
        }
    
    // Get submitted data via $_POST.
    $value = empty( $_POST['field_id'] ) ? null : $_POST['field_id'];
    if ( 'yes' === $value ) {
        $redirect = 'https://yourdomain.com/custom-page/';
    }
    return $redirect;
    
    }, 10, 2 );

    Hi,

    You can use this filter code to change the welcome message

    add_filter( 'mbfs_welcome_message', function( $message, $user, $query ) {
        $message  = '<h3>'. esc_html( sprintf( __( 'Hello, %s!', 'mb-frontend-submission' ), $user->display_name ) ).'</h3>';
        $message .= '<p>'. esc_html( sprintf( __( 'You have %d %s.', 'mb-frontend-submission' ), $query->post_count, strtolower( $query->query['post_type'] ) ) ).'</p>';
    
        return $message;
    }, 10, 3 );

    Regarding the redirect code above, you need to replace my-id and field_id with your meta box ID, field ID to make it works.

    thank you for all your patience with me.

    can you just let me know where I get the info for the following.

    Regarding the redirect code above, you need to replace my-id and field_id with your meta box ID, field ID to make it works.

    I have this shortcode for the form - where do I find the 2 IDs
    [mb_frontend_form id='garden-form' post_fields='title,content']

    sorry for my lack of knowledge on this topic - this is all new to me

    kind regards

    Paul

    Hi,

    You can add those code blocks to the file functions.php in the theme/child theme folder to implement them. You can see the details in this screen record https://www.loom.com/share/f6cf8db0ab7a4aef8218ce03fcc34b6e

    thank you for your help again - I don't want it to redirect if a value is matched - I just want it to go to a different page once it has been submitted - so after post go to /newpage/

    thanks again

    Hi,

    You can use the attribute redirect to redirect to the newpage after the post is submitted successfully.

    [mb_frontend_form id='garden-form' post_fields='title,content' redirect='http://your-site.com/newpage']

    Get more details about the attributes here https://docs.metabox.io/extensions/mb-frontend-submission/#shortcode-attributes
