Displaying user posts anonymously in forum

Post by dewey316 » Thu Jun 05, 2008 3:26 am

Hello,

I am trying to find a way to make just one of the forums on my board display all users posts as anonymous posts. I only want users to be able to post in here, but to keep their username hidden in just this forum. We use it as a sort of a "Dear Abby" forum.

Any help on where to start to modify things to make this work would be very helpful thanks.

(I am running the lastest update of phpbb 2.x, i forget what the last update was, but I am current)

Thanks,
John

You would need a MOD to achieve this, so I'll move this to MOD Requests.
Have you looked through the MODs Database or Releases / Development forums?
I'm sure there is something like this available :)

I did search, I found an option to let users post anonymously, but it was a global option. I want to be able to limit it to just one forum, and not give them the chance to post in every forum (such as a for sale forum) anonymously.
