Can I allow guests to post?

Post by Mayflow on September 1st 2012, 4:41 pm

I just created a new forum and would like to allow as much freedom as possible for all, but I didn't see an option for me to allow guests to post. Did I miss it or can't I do it?

Thanks.

Administration Panel > General > Forum > Categories & Forums
Go through each forum (permissions) and check the boxes for guests to Open a Topic, etc.

Hi

Yes you can let guests post on your forum but a word of warning
If you let guests post your open to spam and other UN-wanted posters.

But if you still want this setting then it can be done by doing the following step..

ACP >>
General Tab >>

Forum >> Categories and forums >> click the little >> icon on the forums you wish the guests to post in and then right near the top there should be
View and read
Guests [ ]
Write and reply
Guests [ ] Tick the box and save


Hope this is what your looking for

Your Friendly Helper Ape

Well, I didn't see an option for guests, but one for "all"

Problem fixed. Thanks guys or girls as the case may be. And, I'll be careful and will know how to be careful in the future, but for now I just want to attract a few members and make everything as easy as possible for them.

Great advice and answers and thanks again. :-)
