Assuming you are already auto logged in and do not need to visit the board as a guest

go to the admin control panel -> users and groups tab -> User security and then click the ban option used to ban the anonymous user and then remove the ban

What - having a stupid brother?

I would say it is not a bug as you may want a closed forum so you could want to prevent guest access

Nope, It is likely his brother entered a space into the ban list..... which I would guess(not tested this theory) would ban everyone like it does on phpBB2. Being able to ban someone is not a bug......it is a feature 8O

So, banning the anonymous user is by design because it serves a purpose?

No idea why you are arguing.....you know where the bug tracker is, if you feel ti is a bug submit it! The fact the anonymous user does not show in the banned user names when banned is another bug as you can not un-ban it


EDIT: However playing with it shows there is in my opinion actually no bug present as founders can log in still and you can add the Anonymous user to the

"Exclude from banning:
Enable this to exclude the entered users from all current bans."

section which will remove the ban and exclude it from banning again I my playing about was correct :)


I have submitted it to the bug tracker so the devs can decide :)



EDIT 2: Fixed in cvs :)
