Can you take a look at this plugin https://www.gravityforms.com/add-ons/limit-submissions/ for more feature suggestions for buddyblog.
Thank you for the suggestion.
Even though an addon for limiting submission will be good, I am not finding the above addon much helpful. I will explain with each of their limits.
1.Limit who can submit your forms. :- We already have the ability to limit by roles.
2.Limit what can be submitted. :- Not much relevant as the plugin is for creating content not a form submission. If we extend our validations features, that will take care of this.
3. Limit where your forms can be submitted. – Not relevant as the form has predefined locations currently.
4. Limit when your forms can be submitted.:- It does not seem a highly needed feature. It can be an option in the future but I am not seeing a strong reason to have it. The reason is you can globally turn off creation anytime.
Overall, I find that BuddyBlog Pro is aimed at a different use case than the contact form submission plugins and are used in different context. We should have restrictions(how many entries are allowed, who can publish, who can edit after publish, how many days after publishing an entry is allowed to be edited, set limit for auto deletion/drafting of posts after n days and so).
I will love to hear your ideas in BuddyBlog context.
I do agree with you 100%, the restrictions that are most applicable in BuddyBlog context are the ones you outlined (how many entries are allowed, who can publish, who can edit after publish, how many days after publishing an entry is allowed to be edited, set limit for auto deletion/drafting of posts after n days and so).
I Also think its better not to over complicate features. Ive been having all this suggestions lately as I think buddypress plugins really need to improve in terms of monetization of features and functionality. Why have a community or platform if it cannot be monetized properly. For example this was a plugin heading in a good direction before it was abandoned. https://wordpress.org/plugins/bp-premiums/
