Option to allow guest posting


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I wish for the option (in a future release) to allow guest posting. In our modern age, when I say 'forum,' many younger adults roll their eyes and envision a lengthy registration process so that they can post their thoughts and opinions.  I have the experience of growth and productivity by allowing guests to post, who often join after, having already enjoyed the experience of my community (risk-free).  I believe this option would benefit others.

You can already either allow guests to post, or use a simple 'post before registering' approach that allows people to post their message and then complete the signup process later.

Typically allowing guests to post isn't a great idea, but the option is there should you want it.

While you wait?

🤔 That's worded in an odd way.  But OK.  -- Thank you.

But in the guest group, where is the option to allow you to post? I see no option in

/?app=core&module=members&controller=groups  > Guest

Here's an overview of the feature

This would be a permission not a group setting, click the padlock icon there

I assumed the permission would have been available when you clicked on to edit the group.  Little details, eh? lol 😉
