    I know this is a noob question but. Is there a plugin for wordpress that lets users make post? My first blog is going to be a basic joke site. And i just want a simple submit joke button and to have that joke posted on the main page. Do i need a theme based for this if so whats a good one? Thanks...


    oh and is it possible to set this up when i add a rating system that the top rated post is located at the top of the page?

    WP has membership functions built in so you could use that to allow visitors to register as members and then make posts which would appear as normal in any WP listings.

    Go to the WP Admin area and Settings/General to enable the membership options. Obviously you don't want to allow others to be Admins - think Contributor is the one you'll want for the New User Default Role but haven't really used the membership stuff myself so no too sure on that.
