Solved HOw can someone who not a member post with a username and listed as guest.

Post by Admin_UFF2 on May 4th 2011, 2:52 am

IM baffled here. I just had a post from someone who is NOT a member however the post showed up with a username and underneath was listed as a guest.

Now guests are not allowed to post on my site, and now in admin panel I dont even see the option to allow guests to post at all??

Top it off with the Guest having a username, but doesnt show up under users?

IIM completely baffled here by this.

Can anyone help me out with this? Is this related to the latest changes done to the forums lately.

Im blown away.

1. Go to Admin Panel (Advanced) >> General >> Categories and Forums
2. Click "Forum Permissions Control"
3. If anything in the "Reply" or "Post" columns says "ALL", guests can post.
4. To change this, manually edit it for one forum, and then "Copy Forum Permissions" for the others you want guests not to post in.

This might sound complicated, but if you set the Permissions Control to Advanced it is pretty straightforward. I hope this helps!
