Advices for wordpress web developing

I want to make a website where users can sign up and post stories of their own in certain categories which will get through a verification process by the admin. After verification,it will be displayed on the category page.Now many suggested me buddypress but I wanted to know if there is anything else. I don't want people to add friends or do private chats. I would like it to be more like sololearn with follow options. Any plugins, themes(wont be making one from scratch) you can suggest? 😃

There are plugins for user submitted posts, they allow the user publish posts without using the WP-Admin and also allows approval before the posts can be seen. https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/plugins-user-generated-content/ WordPress is great for that purpose.

A man is making a hot air balloon flight. He strays and decides to descend and ask someone. Go down about 10 meters from the ground and ask a person passing by: - Please, can you tell me where I am? - Well, look, you're in a hot air balloon, about 10 meters above the ground. - You are a computer, right? - Yes, how do you know? - Because they gave me a technically correct answer, but that does not solve anything. - And you are a user, right? - Yes, how do you know? - Because he's as lost as before, but now he blames me.
