Guest access for forumsMay 25, 2011 @ 8:22pm
Hey Dave, Otter,

I have two questions about the Forums which I didn't see asked (though may have missed it)...

I have a client who would like to allow everyone, including GUESTS to post to the forums. The permissions for them are all set at "0 - Everyone", but Guests still receive a msg saying they must first login before posting.

Question #1
After glancing at the code, I'm thinking two modules need to be changed:


Code

inc-mb-thread_post.php
inc-mb-thread_compose.php


In particular, lines where the following appears:

Code

if ($Permissions[201] != 'y') { ... etc.


Question #2
I'm guessing this will probably allow all guests to modify and delete other guests code as a result?

Anything else that should be considered? (oops, three questions - LOL)

Thanks,
Wolf

Wolf,

Interesting questions. Have you tried granting that permission ("Post Messages and Create Topics") to the Guests level? I don't know whether it will work or not, but that's a good place to start.

That access level (-1) doesn't show up in the drop down list of permission levels...

I see it here. Just to make sure we're in the same place, I'm talking about "Manage Permission Levels", then checking the box for "Post Messages and Create Topics" under the Guests / 0 level.

But I don't know that it's going to work. I seem to recall this was mentioned way back when, and though I don't remember if it actually works to allow guests to post, I know the one issue you're going to have is unwanted posts - both human and automated.

Hi David,

That was too easy! I was trying to make it much harder <drat> - LOL

Yep, I changed the permission level for Guest to allow posting to the forums and it did indeed let me do it as guest. I, like you, am sure we'll get a bunch of unwanted posts and spam ... but some clients ... well, you knowSmile

Hugs and thanks a-pleanty!
Wolf
