Report Post is a highly customizable plugin that lets your visitors to report posts or pages with inappropriate content. All these reports are displayed as a table in your Administrator section so you can decide what to do next: edit contents, unpublish posts/pages, or just delete these reports. The plugin was designed to work in both automatic and manual modes. In automatic mode, the link to report will be added to post’s meta box. In manual mode, you can place the link, button or image anywhere you want in templates.

  • Highly customizable via Options and CSS
  • AJAX based – no page reload will occur
  • Can be used in Automatic and Manual modes (to use in templates)

  • Does not use additional databases / tables anymore. All reports are stored in postmeta.
  • Modal window instead of expandable form (works with AJAXly loaded posts!)

  • All texts displayed in front end are customizable via Options

Plugin demo: www.esiteq.com/projects/wordpress-report-post-plugin/


Plugin handles 4 class names. Two pre-defined (.report-post-link for a simple link with exclamation mark icon and .report-post-button for button) and two custom that you can define yourself (.report-post-custom-link and .report-post-custom-button, respectively).

To work correctly, report link must be placed inside of an


article> tag. Article tag must have id=”post-XXXX”, where XXXX is the id of current post. If your theme does not use


article> tags, you can add post-id=”XXXX” attribute to report link, e.g.

<a href="#" post-id="<?php echo $post->ID; ?>" class="report-post-link">Report Inappropriate Post</a>
