WordPress is an amazing platform for managing a website, blog, portfolio, and the like. However, it’s limited when it comes to the way you manage your content, as everything is done from the backend of your site. This means that if you need to edit something quickly on a post or page, you still need to go to the backend to do so. It’s quite a hassle, right?

There are many other things that can only be done from the backend, including uploading media, creating categories, switching themes, creating new posts, and more. But the idea of constantly going to the admin area just for a few small changes can be a huge setback if you have other things that require your immediate attention.

Wouldn’t it be a lot easier if you could just edit your content, add new posts, add new categories, and do many other tasks from the frontend? Well, that’s possible now, all thanks to these 10 WordPress frontend plugins right here! Check out their full features and see how they can help you out.

Enjoy!

Back End Instructions

Back End Instructions

The Back End Instructions plugin works by delivering instructions to clients who require instructions on running their new WordPress website, or readers with instructions on how to use a website. It also serves multi-author websites/blogs, wherein the owner can add a checklist to the frontend of their site.

Front-end Editor

Front-end Editor

This free WordPress plugin allows you to make changes to your content directly from your site. It doesn’t require you to load the admin backend just to correct a typo. It makes the same capability checks, so that if a user is not authorized to edit something in the WP admin area, they aren’t allowed to edit in the frontend, as well. With this plugin, you can edit posts, custom post types, comments, widgets, and many other elements.

Front End Login Form

Front End Login Form

Front End Login Form is a WordPress plugin that adds a login form on your pages so you can easily log in to your WordPress admin without having to visit the wp-login or wp-admin page. It provides a custom CSS3 based login form that’s ready to be integrated to your theme through shortcode.

Guest Posts

Guest Posts

This WordPress plugin allows your registered and unregistered users to use a frontend publishing form to submit posts. New submissions will be added to the pending queue. It also saves the author’s name and email, so it’s a lot easier for you to give credit to your guest authors. What’s more, you can automatically send a custom ‘Thank You’ message after a post is submitted.

Front End Upload

Front End Upload

The Front End Upload plugin allows your site visitors to upload files to your Media Library from your site’s frontend. Simply add a shortcode where you’d like the form to appear.

Live Edit

Live Edit

Live Edit provides a slide-out panel to edit the title/content, and any advanced custom fields on any template file. Instead of automatically adding an “edit” button to the page or post, Live Edit will specify a region (div element) which you can edit.
