Hi @amitkool21,

I'm sorry, but that is not possible to do for security reasons as only authors, admins (high-level users) have permission to create posts.

But I bought this addon for this purpose only ☹ 

Because the description said "Full Blog to Forum and  semi Forum to Blog cross-posting system"

Can't we just restrict the addon to post only Admins Forum post to blog ?

@amitkool21,

The semi forum to Blog is about replies:

If the user Replies in the Topic, the reply would appear in the Blog Post as well, and if the user Comments in the Blog Post, the Comment would appear in the Topic.

If the return is not an option, Is there a chance that It'll work other way (Forum to blog) in future...?? ... Is there no way to just restrict the addon to post only Admins Forum post to blog ? 😕

@amitkool21,

I'm sorry, but we don't have any plans to work on topic to blog post cross posting feature. This is no way to restrict this kind of cross-posting, it's a very unsecure and uncontrolled way. There is no appropriate areas and tools on the topic creating form to manage all what you can do in Blog Post editing admin page, so it's almost impossible to create a secure cross-posting from forum to blog post.

We can refund your order even if this is not a refundable case. The description of this addon says what it does. It doesn't say you can do this kind of cross-posting. You have not even read the addon description before buying it: https://gvectors.com/product/wpforo-cross-posting/

Thank You @tomson for offering the refund. I read the description and thought that it'll work as I thought. So, I take it partially as my fault also and in that case I'll keep it and I'll find some use for it on my forum. By the way could you guys make a Note on the description page that it doesn't work for Forum to Blog posting, So someone else won't do the same mistake which I did.

Thanks again.
