    Hi,

    Thank you for reaching out.

    We have the extension MB Frontend Submission which has similar functions to that plugin. It lets users edit the post on the frontend as well. Get more details on this documentation https://docs.metabox.io/extensions/mb-frontend-submission/.

    Thank you! If I compare, the MB Extension requires a fair bit of coding and more time to do the same job.
    Kind regards,

    With respect, this could be a good plugin to acquire or emulate as an MB solution offering.

    Kind regards,

    Hi,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    I think the extension MB Frontend Submission needs to extend some features like that plugin. I will inform the development team to consider adding it to the roadmap of this extension.

    Sorry, I am getting back to tackle this afresh after a while - Got busy with client work. Hope you don't mind if I'm not prompt with my replies here.

    I just looked up the support thread here and it seems familiar from my previous attempt. But only somewhat.

    Here's my particular scenario:

      I use a premium plugin, which in turn uses Meta Box free version.
      This premium plugin creates CPTs when a customer makes a purchase on the WooCommerce store.
      The plugin offers the customer a dashboard for managing such CPTs on the WP backend.
      Please note that I do not have a special frontend CPT submission form page here - but only a WooCommerce store.

    Now, I simply need to display this dashboard on the frontend.How to display this customer dashboard on the frontend in such a scenario please?

    Kind regards,

    Hi,

    The extension MB Frontend Submission only allows the users to edit their posts (author) on the frontend. If your premium plugin creates posts and assigns the author to the customers who make a purchase, you can create two pages:
    - One has a frontend form shortcode https://docs.metabox.io/extensions/mb-frontend-submission/#creating-post-forms
    - One has the dashboard shortcode https://docs.metabox.io/extensions/mb-frontend-submission/#user-posts-dashboard

    Then you can show the dashboard page for users to edit their posts on the frontend.

    Thank you so much to respond on a holiday!

    Yes, my system assigns ownership of the CPT to the customer who buys it.

    But, if you don't mind me asking, why do we need the frontend Form shortcode - since there is no form submission happening - its only product purchases which creates the CPT.

    Kind regards

    Hi,

    Because the Frontend Dashboard page needs the page has the shortcode Frontend Submit available. So we can do this trick to combine the Frontend Dashboard with your premium plugin while that plugin does not support editing posts on the frontend.

    Thank you. I am total newbie with MB and not a programmer. Just want to verify the process please.

    Step 1
    So I first create a dummy form submission page using the shortcode
    [mb_frontend_form post_fields="title,content"]

    Step 2
    Then,create another page with the shortcode
    [mb_frontend_dashboard edit_page="124"]
    Here, I will substitute the page id of 124 with the page id of the form submission page I create in step 1.

    Could you please confirm whether these are the only two steps required? I am not sure because I do not see a place to specify the CPT type in these shortcodes.

    You are right, at the moment, the premium plugin does not support editing posts on the frontend. Will making this dashboard enable frontend editing of CPTs?

    Kind regards,
