Right now guests get the "You cannot reply to this topic" button when viewing the forum, but I think that is pointless - they don't know what to do.
A better solution would be to have a button that says "Register to reply to this topic" with a link to registration page. That would drive more user registrations.
How hard is this to implement?
I think it's done that way because of permissions.
You might find someone registers and finds they're in a forum in which they can only view and it's still saying "Register to reply to this topic".
That's my point - guests don't have the permissions, but instead of giving them a brick wall, the buttons should motivate them to register...
Basically, guest should be shown buttons to register, members get the reply and start discussion buttons.
Yeah, I don't run view-only forums, so I could hack the thread view code. I may try it later.
