Allow anyone to post to bbpress (including non-logged-in visitors)

    Hello!

    I am getting started with bbpress and have searched Google and the bbpress forums for an answer to this to no avail – Can I let anybody, even people who aren’t logged-in, post to my bbpress forum? If so, how can I set this up?

    Thanks!

    This allows anonymous posting:

    https://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/bb-anonymous-posting/

    This allows you to add Name/email/website fields:

    https://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/post-meta/

    But it’s really tricky stuff to add post-level meta info to version .9, so this may not be a stable combo of plugins. It should get a lot easier to have post-level meta information in 1.0…

    Hi …

    for the stable 0.95 release there is a plugin to allow anonymous user to post:

    https://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/bb-anonymous-posting

    I use this plugin in combination with:

    https://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/human-test

    But in my test environment the plugin don’t work with the bbPress 1.0 Release Candidate.

    Thanks but this is not exactly what I’m looking for.

    I do NOT want Anonymous posting.

    What I simply want to do is display the HTML textarea field to either create a post or reply to an existing post to non-logged in users.

    Then, once that user clicks submit – it then asks them to either login or create an account.

    I don’t believe this is driven by bbPress but it’s a demostration of what I’m talking about.

    Notice how at the bottom of the page, you can “Start New Discussion”, then once you submit the form – it prompts you to login.

    Hi… hmmm…

    I’ve no idea yet, if its possible to implement this function to a bbPress Board.

    If you take a look deep into http://www.streeteasy.com you can see this forum saves the input into an cookie file (discussion_category_id=3007; discussion_title=Test; comment=test;). So – there it’s possible to log in or to register – and then use your input for a new entry.
