XF 1.5 Let guests report posts


Active member
Hi :)

Iv'e tried to add the permission for unassigned/unconfirmed users, but the report button won't show up?

There are certain actions which unregistered members are unable to do as it is hard coded, such as liking content, voting on polls, reporting content, etc.

Have you thought that (letting guests report posts) all the way through. I certainly can see how your moderators/staff will get worn out once users decide to "game" the ability.

Reports are treated similar to threads where the person reporting the post is like a "thread starter." I can't see it working if a report is simply attributed to "guest."

There are also visitors (guests) who may want to harass the staff just by reporting anything and everything. I know on our busier forums, the staff is busy enough dealing with everyday matters. They don't need floods of guest reports coming in.
