Disable Guest Posting Requiring to input username

Post by mutank »

I'm trying to find the switch in the ACP to disable the need so when a guest visiting the site wants to post, that they need to input their own username.

I want every post that is posted by a visitor who is not logged in to represent the username "visitor" or "anonymous" or something of that liking.

And on a side note, PHPBB is already at 3.0.8? It's growing pretty fast. I remember super-modding my board back at 3.0.5 and below

There is no "switch". You would need a mod.

Ah, alright.

Is there any previous versions of PHPBB which did not have it this way?

Or was phpBB always set-up like this for guest posting and I just never noticed? :?

the thing is that guest posting is not a good idea, so they have made it difficult to do.

if you allow guest posting, then you will most likely be spammed to death in just a couple of days.
