#1 AccessPress Anonymous Post Plugin

Frontend Post Plugin

AccessPress Anonymous Post is a responsive HTML5 form to allow your website users (guests/visitors/not logged in users) to submit a Standard WordPress Post in an easy and customized way, including a featured image.

I’m using this plugin in most of my themes in order to add a Front-end Submission Form. Because this plugin by default will work with any WordPress theme, some additional style work should be done to the fields, but as for the functionality, everything will work smoothly.

Frontend Posting Plugins are those plugins that allow your visitor/user to submit information, news, reviews, articles, and any other contents right from the front end. You can easily add front end submission feature in your WordPress website and allow your visitors to post or submit content in the simple, convenient and fastest way. Add a Front-end Submission Form to Your WordPress Theme.

#2 Dave’s WordPress Live Search Plugin

Dave's WordPress Live Search

Dave’s WordPress Live Search adds “live search” functionality to your WordPress site. As visitors type words into your WordPress site’s search box, the plugin continually queries WordPress, looking for search results that match what the user has typed so far.

The live search technique means that most people will find the results they are looking for before they finish typing their query, and it saves them the step of having to click a submit button to get their search results.

Note: This plugin hasn’t been updated in more than 2 years, but it still works without any issue with the latest WordPress version and I’m still using it in some of my themes. If you think that a plugin that is no longer maintained or updated for a period of time, isn’t for you, you can disable it without any problem and nothing will be lost, only the live search functionality will be disabled.
