The integration of guest posts in the new comment system is just horrible! They can't give their name, for instance. It is just filled in with "Guest" ... I mean, how inexpedient is this? And in IP.Content blocks, which fetch comments, there stands nothing as the name. Its like: "Newest comment to this blog entry by" ???
The second part would be a bug (IP.Content not showing any 'name'). You should report it to the IP.Content tracker.
Well that is more a problem of my block code in IP.Content. Can fix it... okay!
But still: Why can't guests give themselfs some kind of name?
It would be really nice for guests to be able to give their name. Another thing that would be great is if comments on apps other than IP.Blog (i.e. Gallery, Downloads, and Content) could be checked for spam with Akismet.
I would like to add that if guests can give them self's some kind of a name (Example: Guest-"insertnamehere") it would be wise to have such name be run through the bad-word list for filtering first.
I want to allow guests to post comments and new forum topics in certain forums...but I can't allow it because there is no "Question & Answer" challenge available for posting/commenting as guests... I'm afraid the spam will be too much. (ReCapcha doesn't stop them)
I wish they would add Question & Answer Challenge for Guests posts/comments
