Display Posts to the Public for Normal Unregistered Visitors of your Site

Most of the themes or plugins come with their own views to display submissions. If you use BuddyForms to create a form for an existing post type, the display part is most of the time already done because the theme or plugin is creating the post type. In this case you only use BuddyForms for the frontend form and management of the users submissions from the frontend. 

If you have created you own post type and search for a way to list the post created by a forms you can use the following Shortcodes.

Display all Submission created by a Form
[buddyforms_list_all query_option="list_all_published_posts" user_logged_in_only="false" form_slug=""]
