This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

WP Report Post


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.


  • Easy to use – you can simply activate the plugin and it will do the thing
  • 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)
  • Works for Posts, Pages and Custom post types
  • Supports AJAXly loaded posts, ‘infinite scroll’ posts, etc.
  • Does not use additional databases / tables anymore. All reports are stored in postmeta.
  • Modal window instead of expandable form (works with AJAXly loaded posts!)
  • Bulk Unpublish, Publish, Delete Posts, Delete Reports
  • All texts displayed in front end are customizable via Options
  • Admin notification about reported posts
  • Can use Captcha to protect from spam

Plugin demo:


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>


  • Report Post Modal window

  • Report post link (it can be a button, or custom link / icon / button / etc)

  • Reported posts in the admin section, grouped by Post

  • Plugin options


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/wp-report-post directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Enjoy 🙂


I am using custom WordPress theme and there is no Report link appears in the post

You may have specified incorrectly element and class (or id) to add link to. Check your theme’s template and find an element that presents in each post.

I want to use custom link / button / image to display Report form

You can place report link / form anywhere on the page. Example markup:

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