Guest Posting for XenForo 2.x by AddonsLab

Guest Posting for XenForo 2.x by AddonsLab 1.8.0

No permission to buy ($34.99)
This update fixes compatibility with XenForo 2.2.x. Please note, that XenForo 2.2.x includes a feature called "Writing before registration", which in essence replaces the functionality of this add-on. The add-on will automatically de-activate if you activate this XenForo feature, but you can decide to keep using our add-on, as it provides more features than the built-in solution for now.

This release implements an option allowing admins to redirect guests directly to the registration page after the content was posted. We have also fixed some issues reported, like sending an email with a reminder to register and public the content posted even if the content was deleted by moderators and the option "Send reminder email in" being treated in minutes instead of hours.

This is a minor release, that changes the way the add-on is using some of our shared PHP classes. From now on, the add-on will require a core library package from https://xenforo.com/community/resources/al-core-package.7382/ to be installed. Please download the package and install it before upgrading the add-on. Please upgrade all other AddonsLab add-ons you are using to their latest versions if you see an error in the Admin Panel about files with unexpected content.

The release also fixes a PHP error in XenForo 2.1.2+ versions.

The version implements a new option allowing to activate guest posting based on XenForo permission system. Administrators can enter the ID of any user (usually a registered user), whose permissions should be taken into account when doing the check. If the given user can't create a thread or reply in a thread in the given forum, then guest posting will also not be available.

Please note, that the option causes one additional query (fetching user data from the database) on all pages where permission checks are relevant. Leave the option empty for the product to continue operating as before (separate forums can be de-activated using the product's options page).

Please consider posting a review if you are using the add-on and let us and other users know how it works for you.

The release implements a new option to set the username prefix for random usernames generated during guest registration. If you let the posts from unregistered users to expire and delete automatically there is no need to change this option, but if you manually approve guest posts and make them visible you may decide to change it. By default the prefix is "Guest-" so the usernames used will be "Guest-xxxxxx".

A minor bug is fixed showing "Your content has been submitted and will be displayed pending approval by a moderator." message after user registers and actually activates the thread/post.

There was a bug in the package we have released recently because of which it did not include the bug-fix changes. If you have already installed with version 1.3.2 please re-download it and upload the files, after which you will get the Upgrade button in the Admin Panel as well. After upgrading the issue should be resolved fully.

Thank you!
The version fixes the bug reported regarding the cases, when the board has guest posting allowing using default XenForo permissions, e.g. "Post replies" and "Post new thread" permissions are activated for unregistered users, and guests trying to post would get "Please enter a valid name" message. If guests have permission to post in threads and posts the Guest Posting product is practically inactive, it does not handle the submission of posts anymore, but by mistake its template modification was not properly inactivated in this case and as a result the Username field was removed from the template, making it impossible for guests to set the username.
