Guest/member Login/Topic posting Issues

Post by turnerjeremy0 on February 27th 2011, 7:34 pm

I have set up a forum for a Tri Club -

I have been asked by people who are members if it is possible to not have to login in order to view all the topics. In the admin panel i have adjusted all the guest/member settings to allow this.

However...when it comes to posting a new topic or reply without going through the login process - it asks for a username and if i type my own (i am a member and the administrator) it says already taken so i have to invent one. It also asks for a confirmation code similar to spybot verification steps.

how can i allow everone who sees my forum to post and view all topics without having to go through these steps?

many thanks

Sorry you can't change it. You will need to post a username and a confirmation code to prevent spammers/bots.

The easiest way to not have to log in to a forum is to not log out in the first place. Even then, every so often Forumotion resets things, for security purposes, so that everyone has to log in to their forums, as well as here.

Actually, I do not know what the drama is for your members logging in to post, etc, as it is a very simple process. Much more simple than many other sites.

It almost sounds as though you are joining as a new member each time you go through that process without logging in. As MrMario says, it is all about helping to keep your forum secure.
