How To Turn Off Guest Posting 3.02?

Post by handyguy2 »

I searched but couldn't find a specific topic on this.

I have version 3.02 I tried deleting Anonyous user.

But anyone coming to my board can still post without registering. (Grrrrrr, *.ru spammers)

Can I have specific instructions on this? Thanks.

Don't! That user is a vital part of the forum software.

You need to make sure the permissions are set correctly on all your forums. The "Permissions masks" feature in the ACP is there to help you work out what permission setting is applying to your guests.

I see, thanks.

For those who want to know what I did:

-Users’ forum permissions
-Select anonymous user
-Select a forum:
-Submit & select permissions from the drop down list. I changed it to 'Read only.'
