Re: Add New Topic & Open Posting
There was a similar bug report posted – the earlier response might be helpful… or maybe the original poster might let you know if they ever found a solution?
This might also do the trick (although it’s a bit kludgy):
There’s a plugin that allows anonymous posting, but all users are marked as with “anonymous”:
_ck_ wrote a cool plugin that lets you “add additional fields to posts like Name/Email/Website for anonymous users via Post Meta plugin”: https://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/post-meta/
I don’t know how thoroughly it’s been tested, but if you are willing to run alpha software – it might be worth a shot!
