Solved Guest Posting Usernames

Post by kkemlyn on July 24th 2015, 8:45 pm

How do I get the names in the posts of my guests to show up like this:


Instead of like this which they currently do:


Guest posting is working but I want everybody using it to be listed as Guest Guest like in the first image. Entering 'Guest' into the required username box results in these error messages: Sorry, but this username has been disallowed. Sorry, but this username has already been taken. I already have 'Unauthorize subscriptions made with the most commonly used spam usernames' set to no, although it was initially set to yes. I have resyncing my board, but I still can't get Guest Guest on any browser or any theme version. I am currently using punBB. My forum: http://fyfawsl.forumotion.co.uk/

When guests post on a forum, they can enter whatever username they want. I believe what you are referring to as guest are the posts for members who have unsubscribed from a forum.

It is working now, but I haven't actually changed anything in the time between starting this thread and posting this replay. Perhaps one of my earlier changes took a while to go through? Entering 'Guest' in the username box still results in the errors, but - if you enter Anonymous (for example) instead it allows you to post and the posts display as Guest Guest. So problem solved.
