Xpressme/Wordpress Author Submission

Hello XOOPSers,
This is for Xpressme power users or hopefull the module developer himself (phppp according to modules listin) if he is in this forum. Permissions are all set up for users to have "author" status on sign in. But the blog screen does not provide authors with any obvious way to create/post new content. They can only read, and set notifications. What was the intent concerning how author should submit content when this module was designed? If I change users to "editors", rank, then they do get the "post new" link, however I was able to edit another users blog as a test user and that isn't good at all. Authors must only be capable of editing their own. What is the intended create/post procedure for authors with this module?

Thanks.

phppp has left the Xoops Project and did so in a bad way so I don't expect him to be anywhere around this site.

Attending College working towards Bachelors in Software Engineering and Network Security.

Hi RHR
Yeah, I saw on of the announcement stating he was no longer on the XOOPS council.

Thanks for the update, I hope we got some XpressMe users with current authors who might be able to help.

Not sure. Just started using XPressME. I'll have to look into it.

Geez I almost don't want to post this but what the hay. When you open the XprMe blog, the attention of the user (being me) is on the center of the screen. It does however also post an innocuous almost unnoticable menu bar at the top of the screen that contains a submenu with the post command. When clicked it opens up a post screen that works great.

However I am going to study the referenced link in detail thanks cgunthere.
