Mods have permissions to view and reply in all threads. The point of this forum is so people can contact all mods as opposed to a PC to one mod or contact form to one admin.
The forum is working fine for members who post. As designed they can only see their own thread and can have a discussion with all mods.
However I have set up permissions so guests can also post. A couple of problems
- When I test this, a guest can post, but they cannot see the thread.
- When the guest posts, they are prompted to fill in "Forum Name" but they obviously do not have a forum name.
- They get a message that the post is awaiting moderation, however it is not in the moderation queue, and is already approved.
(NB: I just realised that "guest" if they can view their own thread might see all guest threads. However if this happens it isn't a disaster)
Here are my Unregistered permissions.
