Addon request: Visitors submit news

Postby NitroX_infinity » Wed Apr 16, 2003 11:59 am

Don't know if it already exists, but here goes:

You can let visitors of your site submit news by adding a form which, when submitted, sends you an email.

Is there some way this could be made as an addon for coranto?

There would be a link to the addon's page on the main page (like the upload manager) which would contain a link to every submission.
In front of the link would be a checkbox (if it's been posted or not) and there would be an option to delete the submission.
The link points to a page on which the submission can be viewed in full.
If someone submits news then his/her IP will be logged, so that if the user spams a lot you can block that person from using the addon.

If there's a new submission you get a pop-up on the main page of coranto informing you with a simple piece of text: "There is a new submission in the <name of addon> page."

The idea is that if a newsposter has read the submission he or she can post it using submit news (duh! :P ) and then either check the submission or delete it.

So is there something like this?
If not, perhaps someone with coding skills could create such an addon?

I don't know if it's what you want, but there's an addon (Guestpost Beta 9 - Allows guests to post news without having to login to Coranto..).
