Good Morning Jenna,

To tell you the truth I do not understand this "enable" part.
On my website, I have a page where posts from Guest Writers go. You invite somebody to write a guest post. They accept and then will send the post as a word document or a PDF, you are the one who puts it on your website. Loes said one should not give control on your website to other people. I wrote a guest post for Michelle, Sylvia, and Loes, they put it on their website.
Therefore I do not understand why one needs a plugin etc.

Thank you very much for your opinion! Makes sense to me. What about images? Do they get sent too? Or do you choose them?

Sending much Love and Light!

Good Morning Jenna,

I sent my guest writer post in the same layout as if I would put it on my own website. The receiver of the post will adapt it to their style on their own website. They might make the photos smaller and place them in a different way. When I did a post for Loes it was in Dutch. I had included 2 English speaking videos which she took out. Perfectly ok as her website is Dutch.
I now also know that Google does not like it when you mix the language on your website. If you have an English website one should not put a Spanish video or a link to a Spanish website.
When you hand over your guest post you are not the owner of it anymore.

Hi Jenna :)

You can just add guest writers as a new user in Wordpress and use the AUTHOR option so that's all they have the authority to do.

Hope that suggestion helps.

Will be interested to see if there is a plugin option that is better :)

Nicola :)

Thank you, Nicola! Ok, add a new user.

There are some plugins. One seems to match what I want to install, but it wasn't updated for 3 years.
Will look for more suggestions!!

Thank you for your support!
